SAP mobile app simplifies BI, analytics

Enterprise software maker SAP AG is bringing together multiple business intelligence and analytics applications with the latest release of its Business Objects Mobile app.

The 5.0 release of Business Objects Mobile enables users to collaborate using the SAP JAM social software platform, do voice commands as a form of annotation and ask any questions and get answers with Exploration Views on their iOS-powered devices, according to SAP.

“As organizations shift from a predominantly PC-based workforce to mobile, they cannot afford to have employees disconnected from the enterprise when critical decisions need to be made,” an SAP statement said. “The new 5.0 release puts the power of mobile analytics from SAP in one place, enabling users to easily interact with reports and dashboards.”
