ABOUT THE TOPIC:

BI Mobility or Nobility?

While everything mobile is hot right now, including mobile Business Intelligence, companies tend to be experimenting more with BI on mobile devices than they are embarking on enterprise wide solutions. This makes sense when we consider the plethora of different devices, operating systems and applications available in addition to considerations based around the investment made in existing BI applications for the PC.

This presentation will delve into both the options and the considerations for deploying BI applications on mobile devices. If you have made significant investments in BI in the Enterprise, how do you best leverage this on mobile devices?

Real customer case studies will be presented and discussed to show different approaches to effectively deploying BI on mobile devices today.
