mobile delivery of BI is all
about practical, tactical
information needed to make
immediate decisions

So you’re thinking about going Mobile….


Who am I’m going to be providing the information too?


What device do they have? What device
WILL
they have? What level of
connectivity will they have?



What information would provide value if it was available via a mobile device?


Improve Productivity, Agility, Transparency and Collaboration


What additional questions would need to be asked of that information now
that it is available? (what level of interactivity is required)


How am I going to expose the information?



What are the security considerations?


What content can I see, what data do I have rights to?




How can I leverage my existing assets?


Hardware, software, skills, etc.
