Mobile business intelligence (BI), also known as mobile BI or mobile analytics, refers to the ability to consume data analytics software solutions on handheld mobile computing devices such as smartphones and tablets. It allows users to perform self-service BI with similar features and systems to those found in full desktop-based business intelligence analytics solutions.
Modern BI platforms typically extend the delivery of their desktop BI capabilities to smartphones and tablets devices so users can access, consume and share data easily on portable devices. Mobile BI specially formats and optimizes dashboards and reports so that the user experience takes into account and leverages smaller, touchscreen-based mobile screens and interfaces.
Mobile BI enables end-users to effectively and efficiently keep track of KPIs, be alerted to changes and trends, consume critical dashboards and reports, perform queries and request and share valuable insights while on-the-go or whenever a desktop device and workstation is not available. The only universal requirement to be able to use it is an Internet connection or mobile network to be able to remotely and wirelessly connect to the servers of their chosen solution.
The best mobile BI solutions let your end-users action every change in your business, anywhere they are, and extend their ability to discover, collaborate and act on insights and create an inclusive and effective data culture with a reimagined experience especially for mobile.
