“Yellowfin’s ‘author once, consumer anywhere’ approach to Mobile BI enables users to deploy dashboard content easily on any mobile device,” said Founder and CEO of BARC, Dr Carsten Bange. “This is reflected in Yellowfin’s clear win in the Mobile BI KPI for dashboard and ad-hoc reporting tool vendors.

“Yellowfin has also enhanced the mobile experience with collaboration features, which support annotations, discussions and content sharing between users.”

Yellowfin General Manager for EMEA, Daniel Shaw-Dennis, said that as a consumer-oriented BI solution, delivering easily accessible mobile reporting and analytics was at the forefront of Yellowfin’s product strategy.

“At Yellowfin, we understand that with increasingly mobile workforces, and on-the-go executives, people need to be able to make fact-based decision anywhere, anytime,” said Shaw-Dennis. “That’s why Yellowfin offers Mobile BI out-of-the-box, on any device or platform at no additional cost, via native applications for the iPhone, iPad, hybrid HTML 5 application for Android devices or Web-browser.”

Analysis in The BI Survey 14 echoed Shaw-Dennis’ comments.

“In many ways, mobile represents the future of BI,” stated the report. “Eventually, there will be many more end users employing mobile devices to access and analyze data. Yellowfin is well-positioned to take on this new realm.”

Yellowfin ranked first for four KPIs (Price-to-value perception, Cloud BI, Mobile BI and Innovation) – and was identified as a leader for an additional 12 KPIs – within the Dashboard Vendor Peer Group of The BI Survey 14.
