Unleash Power of Mobile Analytics Webcast
Mimi Spier, SAP, provided this webcast this past week. She tied together the themes of “Big Data” with Mobile BI, which not something I had considered before.

Figure 2 shows that we are not leveraging as many insights as we can
Mobile will help drive adoption with analytics, said Mimi
We need to be able to predict what will happen next

There are several use cases for mobilization.
Mimi said there is a shift as we not separating mobile any more from analytics and going “mobile first”
How approach analytics? She talked about personas who need different types of analytics, and go to one place – what need, just like on their smart phone
Mobilize specific use cases – predict demand, on operations floor

Enterprise BI, Agile BI, Advanced Analytics offer “one mobile experience”
Figure 4 references the “Journey” for mobile analytics. What does it mean?
Mimi said the first step is you are likely doing this today as 2013 has been a massive adoption year, with new and existing BI customers going straight to mobile. With a simple right click, push to mobile, category to mobile
Mobile first is the approach
Some of the customers listed in Figure 4 such as 3M have 50K users using mobile analytics, building dashboards, reports, Exploration views.

Executives use mobile analytics to manage business

Think of Mobile BI how to solve issues and how Mobile BI meets “Big Data” to help solve Big Data problem, going into lines of business, what is the right data to access
She suggested focusing on use cases such as Charite hospital, analytics to hands of doctors.

Thank you, Tammy. Comprehensive as always.
Was there a demo after Fig 5? I am very interested in where EPM unwired is headed. I believe it uses MOBI's code base and infrastructure. However, MOBI doesn't support EPM content directly yet ?
On a similar note, analysis for office is supported via design studio content, right?
Hi Peter - no, the demo was at the end; and they didn't discuss EPM that I recall
Yes, Analysis Office can go to Design Studio at least two ways:
New in Analysis Office 1.4 - Mobilizing Spreadsheet to Design Studio
Going from BusinessObjects Analysis Office to BusinessObjects Design Studio - Mobilize your Spreadsheet?
