Why do we organize this seminar ?
We are now entering an era where mobile devices like smartphones and tablets are emerging as the most popular way to access information inside the enterprise. This is already the case outside the enterprise on the worldwide Internet, with consumers continuously accessing Web content and transacting business on a daily basis. Advances in mobile usage and in mobile device user interfaces, has opened up demand to extend access to enterprise systems to mobile devices.
However, there are many challenges, including that of supporting organizations who are adopting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy for use in accessing corporate systems. Nevertheless, Mobile Business Intelligence has become one of the hottest areas on the corporate computing 'to do' list as organizations seek to broaden access to information and make actionable insight available to those on the move.
In addition we also see a growth in cloud-based BI systems. This is particularly the case in small- and medium-size businesses as well as in line-of-business areas of larger enterprises. Cloud-based BI platforms and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) BI solutions have forced many organizations to realize that they now have to support a "hybrid" BI environment with a mix of on-premise and cloud-based systems. Mobile devices and desktops now have to connect to these systems to access insight from inside or outside the enterprise. This session also looks at how disconnected users are now supported and how mobile workers can participate in collaborative BI environments and act on business insight to improve business performance. It also looks at what is needed to keep these cloud-based BI systems integrated with on-premise applications.
