An Edge Over Traditional BI
Mobile BI optimizes traditional BI reports to be easily viewable on the small screen, capable of displaying KPIs and alerts with a variety of graphs/charts. It facilitates the online integration of mobile data so that users get real-time data access directly from the device.
Mobile BI is now leveraged by people who earlier did not use any BI tool. It has increased the spread of business intelligence, all because of its mobile nature.
