While traditional vendors like IBM/Cognos, SAP/BO and Oracle still hold the largest slice of the pie and several Cloud BI vendors such as GoodData and Domo have emerged recently, unfortunately, besides moving to the cloud, the basic approach to BI hasn’t changed much. Specifically, the movement towards cloud infrastructure has done little to benefit access and adoption by line-of-business end users and decision makers.
Here are 4 areas that remain the same:
Enterprise Mobility and BYOD (bring your own device) are creating a big shift in the Enterprise.
More and more employees are requesting access to data wherever they are. Companies will need to support this trend beyond simply allowing access to email inboxes. Establishing a data-driven culture and enabling executives and all decision makers to make informed decisions on up-to-date information from their smartphones will create a massive boost in productivity and overall more agile organizations. Empowering the entire workforce to collaborate on real-time data and make better, faster data-driven decisions will increase motivation, innovation and tap the collective intelligence, largely inaccessible today.

Well, MicroStrategy, think again.
Innovative vendors will have to be at the forefront of this shift, working closely with their clients to drive rapid adoption. Here’s what will eventually split the market between true mobile BI vendors and the legacy vendors.
If you think Mobile BI is just an extension of traditional desktop BI

Providing the same old dashboards on mobile devices is not enough! Users need to be able to interact with and collaborate on the data they are looking at in ways they are used to, directly on their devices. Data needs to be delivered in new and optimized ways, based on users roles and locations. Easy self-service on-boarding is paramount to get maximum adoption of and benefit from your BI implementation.
Why should we, in times when you can even customize what’s written on your soda, be at the mercy of generic BI solutions that serve all — but none in particular?
