Mobile Users To Access BI Data

Q4bis and Webalo have formed a strategic alliance to provide mobile connectivity for the Q4bis Business Intelligence Suite, allowing users to view BI reports and retrievals on mobile devices. This new on-demand service allows organizations to publish reports and other information for immediate broadcast to users in the field who can then view the reformatted information on a wide variety of mobile devices. The new strategic relationship that Q4bis has established with Webalo permits it to extend the reach of its Q4bis BI Suite to remote operations for users traveling far from their offices. Q4bis is a provider of a complete, end-to-end BI suite using Microsoft’s tool set: SQL Server 2005, OLAP technology and Reporting Services.

Reports to be distributed are emailed to the hosting service, where they are reformatted for viewing on a variety of smart-phone mobile devices including Blackberry, Pocket PC and Treo. Users can view reports, dynamically customize them, drill down on data and create favorite screen formats.

According t Webalo, the Mobile Dashboard is the first service developed by the company that enables developers and system integrators to “put the user in charge” by dramatically simplifying and shortening the process of delivering high-functionality applications targeted specifically to individual user needs - wherever the user happens to be, and on whatever device the user chooses. That is accomplished with Webalo’s new capability called the User Proxy that provides the missing link between today’s Web services or applications and the entire spectrum of end-user devices – from desktops and laptops, to PDAs and cell phones.
