Mobile Business Intelligence Applications?

What the heck are mobile business intelligence applications?

When you hear the term business intelligence it covers such a wide range of categories it can be really hard to narrow down solutions that solve your specific requirements. What it really means to us is any tool that allows you access to business critical data on your mobile devices such as an ipad/iphone.

There has always been a huge demand for wanting to make data more interesting or more useful. Imagine you saw the real numbers behind a stock quote graph in a spreadsheet. Could you even begin to make sense of that mess? I know I couldn’t, but you put it in a nice looking graph and all of a sudden trends start to pop out. It’s like that old saying a picture is worth a thousand words. Well interactive pictures with instant access to the data that drives them is worth a thousand to the nth power words.

Thats what mobile BI apps ares all about, and that’s why there is a huge upsurge in the world to get access to mission critical data as quickly as possible, no matter where you are.

If I’m a salesperson out in the field making sales calls and my customer asks when I can deliver the product to them. What should I tell them? Do I have to make a call to HQ so that they can lookup information? What if the lines busy, what if I need a large amount of information and HQ doesn’t have quick access to the data? It could also make me look like I don’t know what I’m talking about.

Now flip over to the same scenario but I have all the answers right in the palm of my hand. I can walk the customer through the process and ensure them I’m going to do a great job. I instantly empower myself to do a better job and I look professional to the customer.

That’s just a small example, but there are countless others like notifying partners of investment status instantly or gathering intelligence about critical business KPI’s (Key Point Indicators).

I think most people see the benefit, but it can be really hard to justify the cost. Traditionally the cost to implement a BI solution has been extremely high because most solutions require significant hardware upgrades and heavy license fees.
