Paul Grill, InfoSol Inc.

Limitless Business Intelligence is a movement on the rise as more and more people use their imaginations to visualize amazing BI applications and then actualize them in just weeks.  The BusinessObjects suite provides a rich collection of BI tools and it is just a question of applying them creatively and effectively. In fact, many organizations are seeing the value of using BI tools for both fast deployment and better visualization for operational applications.

This session will highlight this new generation of BI applications through three customer case studies that exemplify what is possible when  big imaginations create limitless business intelligence applications that make a positive difference in people’s lives.

12:45 – 1:45 pm   Turbocharged Mobile  BI Dashboards for the Masses 

Paul Grill, InfoSol Inc.

It has taken a while for the adoption of BI applications on mobile devices for a variety of reasons but now it is possible to create custom mobile BI dashboards applications without coding that can handle large amounts of data with excellent response times.  Xcelsius Dashboards (aka SAP BO Dashboards) have been hugely successful as both the visual interface of many BI solutions as well as delivering complete BI applications.

In the latest release of BI 4.1 and Dashboards 4, it is now possible to generate the dashboards in HTML5 and deploy them to both mobile and Web. When this is combined with intelligent data caching, the result is amazing and fast mobile BI applications. In this enlightening session, we will look at this new capability and show example case studies of some of the turbocharged mobile applications in action.
