What challenges to expect when migrating multiple dashboards from TIBCO Spotfire to Microsoft Power BI?


Hello, I'm working at a company with more than 5000 employees.

We have multiple sets of dashboards and we're looking to migrate them from TIBCO Spotfire to Microsoft Power BI. I'm trying to make a case study before kick-starting the work. 

What challenges should I expect while migrating the dashboards from TIBCO Spotfire to Microsoft Power BI? Are you aware of any tool (or a set of tools) that could help? 

Otherwise, if this migration is done manually, what functionality will potentially be missing in Microsoft Power BI after this migration?

Thanks and I appreciate your help!

Thank you @Evgeny Belenky ​ for tagging me here.

Unfortunately, there is no straight forward way to migrate dashboards from Spotfire to Power BI. You have to do it manually. The good news is that the backend data and cubes can be connected on Power BI using ODBC or REST API. Then you have to replicate the dashboards on Power BI.

Some of these discussions and references would be helpful:
