02:45 – 3:30 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.

03:30 pm – Wrap-up
