Will you send SAP Dashboards users to Analytics Cloud?

With the demise of Adobe’s Flash, will you send your SAP Dashboards users to Analytics Cloud or some other tool?

Right now I am looking at Lumira Designer to replace a couple of dashboards I created. For the most part I can replace the KPI’s. It is a near live dashboard with no user interaction. So finding a way to update the data without HANA or BW has been a challenge (Used Crystal Reports to produce an XML file that was FTPed to the website before). Found out I can use a timer and scripting to update the data. Runs fastest by using OpenDocument to log into the BI platform. I have developed some code to use RESTful services to autologin and open the document. Normally it would be a possible security risk, but I created a special user that can only ‘see’ the dashboard and it is summarized data, so even if the public gets to see it, it would not matter.
