One of the greatest challenges for company leaders and employees is keeping up with the frenetic pace of business.
Customer preferences and market conditions can turn on a dime. Being able to track changing business conditions is difficult enough.
Given that workers are no longer confined to eight-hour stretches at the same desks, executives and employees alike need to be able to consume business intelligence in the easiest way possible – whenever and wherever they need to.
These are some of the key reasons we’ve created TIBCO Spotfire Mobile Metrics, a highly-accessible, user-friendly BI tool that allows employees to monitor the pulse of business instantly.
Using TIBCO Spotfire Mobile Metrics, employees and business leaders can immediately identify and act on business opportunities and problems using personalized key performance indicators (KPIs). The device-independent tool also fosters rich collaboration between team members, enabling stakeholders to drill down from metrics into trends to understand root causes.
As we see it, mobile analytics is a two-tier system – there’s an application tier and a viewer tier.
The application tier provides the underlying functional components of analytics such as connections to data resources, the ability to manage data feeds, querying appropriate data, maintaining KPIs, administering users and groups, and collaborating with other team members on KPIs.
The viewer tier provides the interface of the application tier that enables users to author KPIs and view the KPIs on the devices of their choosing.
When it comes to mobile BI, simplicity is key. Users who are on the go with mobile devices that sport smaller screens need rapid access to KPIs and other insights that are easy to consume. We’re not alone in this belief.
In a recent review of TIBCO Spotfire Mobile Metrics, ZDNet’s Alan Stevens notes that “the beauty” of the tool is that “it simply delivers the information you’re interested in without undue complication.” Just the way a mobile BI tool should perform.
