They include BI dashboard and mobile solutions and will be demonstrated live.

9:45 – 10:15 am – NCAA Dashboard

NCAA: Nikki Watson

Faced with rising athletic expenses at universities, the NCAA put together a task force to come up with ideas to help in the management of athletics program, to understand how peer institutions compare with one another and determine how to make the most of available funds.  The end result was an inspired dashboard solution that serves the various NCAA members in three divisions by feeding back data collected from all universities in a visually pleasing and intuitive fashion.

2:45 – 3:30 pm   2012 BI Mobile Landscape – What’s Real?

InfoSol: Chris Kruger

As the landscape for mobile business intelligence solutions for SAP BusinessObjects users’ changes rapidly, more companies are moving from the “toe in the water” stage to actually paddling in the water with both feet!  There are many choices of solutions – some leverage existing investments in BusinessObjects infrastructure and development, while others require completely new design and development. Some use streaming technology and render content on the mobile device without changes and some are developed natively for the mobile device taking full advantage of the device technology and integrating seamlessly with other native mobile applications.  This session delivered 100% from an iPad cuts through the marketing hype and shows the different mobile BI solution choices that are real and work with SAP BusinessObjects in action so you can compare them side by side.
