Regarding mobile BI, questions that need to be asked: Are todayG«÷s mobile user needs different or changing? Are mobile devices G«£just another BI clientG«•? Rather, itG«÷s all about delivering context-appropriate information in a digestible and actionable form. Users want more than relevant numbers and reports or analytics G«Ű they also want intelligent content and context-relevant content (such as sales presentations, images, videos and alerts). The want guided navigation through structured data delivered to them in a highly consumable and actionable way G«Ű delivered at the point of interaction and need. Are new mobile table-based interactions changing the paradigm from G«£business intelligenceG«• to G«£intelligent information deliveryG«•?

I think the "self-service" BI is a particularly interesting concept, with tremendous potential applications in insurance and banking.

I'm with Cindi on vendors "hopping on bandwagons" and checking boxes "without a clear vision or passion." The tell-tale sign that new products/capabilities aren't genuine is that you never get a follow-up story about a customer putting that option/feature to use.
