Microstrategy Mobile BI
Microstrategy is one of the leaders in extending business intelligence
to mobile devices.
Most businesses recognize the enhanced value of providing rapid
access to business intelligence reports and dashboards to their
executives, workforce, suppliers, and business partners. In the
past, small screens and low processing power frustrated this scenario,
however, with the advance in BI technology solutions and mobile
devices, these constraints are falling away. Powerful app-phones
and tablets that integrate sensor technologies, such as GPS, cameras,
and multi-touch screens, make it much easier to quickly query vast
volumes of data..
Mobile business intelligence is a logical extension of traditional
business intelligence, and MicroStrategy's architecture has been
engineered to provide the speed and scalability to support the escalating
demands of mobile BI applications. MicroStrategy Mobile inherits
the core strengths of the MicroStrategy 9 platform to provide an
enterprise-grade foundation for mobile applications.
MicroStrategy Mobile extends existing MicroStrategy projects to
the iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry. The implementation and deployment
process can be done in only a few days. This is largely due to the
way MicroStrategy Mobile is assembled in a point-and-click fashion
- no coding required.
MicroStrategy Mobile provides the infrastructure needed to support
each new mobile app and the metadata-driven design approach supports
portability between platforms, including iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry,
web browsers, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Windows.
The latest release of MicroStrategy Mobile fully leverages the
native capabilities of the iPhone and iPad to provide a more intuitive
business intelligence optimized for mobile users. For instance:
- Integrated Mapping - out of box integration with Google maps
- Multi-touch - leverages the new Apple multi-touch gestures,
such as swipe, tap, flick, and rotate, to make data navigation
- BI-specific Gestures - such as drilling and paging extend native
iPhone functionality to enhance data exploration.
- App Integration - application functionality can be extended
by directly integrating with other on-device apps, including e-mail,
browser, and text messaging; third-party apps such as social networks
or payment solutions; and existing enterprise systems or data
- Sensor-based Query - integrated with on-device sensors, such
as the GPS receiver, accelerometer, and bar code reader
- Mobile Information Capture - rapid capture of information from
on-device sensors, such as a camera or bar code reader, reducing
the need for manual data entry.
- High Performance - uses multi-level caching, an in-memory data
structure, and a high efficiency network interchange.
- Comprehensive Security - designed to ensure the privacy and
security of data outside the corporate walls, with all BI data
automatically wiped every time the app is closed or the device
is locked or powered off. Data encryption prevents penetration
attacks for mobile BI apps.
- High Scale Operation - can support tens of thousands of users
with fewer CPU's and easy to use administration tools.
