  6. 6. 6 Customer ©2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. Benefits of converting to Web Intelligence There are different reasons why companies decide to undertake projects to convert their Desktop Intelligence content to Web Intelligence. The benefits of these projects to move to Web Intelligence can be measured in several ways: •Reduced total cost of ownership (license price, maintenance cost, …) •Reduced deployment time, resulting in a shorter time to market •Business user empowerment through the ease of use and the large feature set •Support for a more cost-beneficial architecture than Desktop Intelligence •End-of-Life of Desktop Intelligence
