Mobile BI Dashboards

With one BI platform, serve mobile BI dashboards to iPhones, iPads, Android-based tablets, smartphones, as well as full dashboard reporting to PCs, Macs, and laptops.

Since 1996, InetSoft has been delivering business intelligence and reporting solutions to developers and enterprises worldwide. As a server-based solution, requiring only a browser to access interactive dashboards and drill-down reports, InetSoft's Style Intelligence has always been mobile friendly. However, a Flash plug-in had been required for the interactivity of dashboards and visual analyses.

More recently with the proliferation of Apple's iOs, that Flash requirement has been obviated, and interactive dashboards are rendered by the server as JavaScript and HTML5. Native iOs functions like touch and hold menu controls are taken advantage of.

A Live Interactive Mobile BI Example Optimized for the iPad

While Style Intelligence employs a design-one, deploy everywhere approach, depending on the level of interactivity and frequency of use, you might prefer to design a mobile-optimized version of a dashboard that had originally been created for the desktop. You still can share the same data mashup, querying, and transformation layer between the two versions. This live example has been optimized for the layout of the iPad and spaces the controls apart for easier touching. Touch or click the screenshot to the right to open the dashboard in full-screen live interactive mode.
