Due to the nomadic nature of today’s workforce, a place of work is where you are able to work rather than a location. For many, that can be whilst travelling, at home, whilst visiting customers and more traditionally in an office.
Business intelligence dashboards can be accessed via tablets to ensure that critical information is available whilst on the move. This anytime and anywhere access to business critical information, for instance revenue, outstanding debt and sales by product, supports flexible and remote working, enabling key decisions to be made ‘on the move’.
Advanced’s mobile BI applications include IBM Cognos, SAP BusinessObjects and QlikView, which can all be offered with tablets and airtime included.
Advanced is the only software provider to package its mobile BI solution with devices and airtime, providing businesses with a complete ‘one stop shop’ for BI. The devices (Android tablets) and airtime (Orange) are supplied by Advanced Mobile Communications – Advanced Computer Software’s newly launched in-house mobile division.
“Mobile business intelligence is growing fast in the corporate landscape, with many companies piloting or planning deployment initiatives. A recent Gartner survey of 1,364 organizations that use BI tools indicates that 8% are actively using mobility for BI; an additional 13% are running pilot initiatives; and an additional 33% have plans to deploy mobile BI within 12 months.”
