MicroStrategy Announces iPhone BI Plans

MicroStrategy is ready for mobile BI applications on the iPhone. 

On April 8th, they announced a new integrated development environment designed for mobile BI applications.  MicroStrategy claims a "no-code" app dev model where iPhone developers merely assemble mobile components.

MicroStrategy's technology is well positioned for this new mobile BI marketspace.  Their server-based architecture could be used effectively to provide web-based BI documents to handheld devices.

MicroStrategy is reaching out to iPhone developers to create these new mobile BI applications.  To learn more about their beta developer program, see their webpage.

If you happen to be in Cannes in July, you can learn more about this at the MicroStrategy World 2010 event.

About Me

My photo

I am a project-based consultant, helping data-intensive firms use agile methods and automation tools to replace legacy reporting and bring in modern BI/Analytics to leverage Social, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Visualizations, and Predictive Analytics. For several world-class vendors, I led services teams specializing in providing software implementation and custom application development. Based on scores of successful engagements, I have assembled proven methodologies and automated software tools.

During twenty years of technical consulting, I have been blessed to work with smart people from some of the world's most respected organizations, including: FedEx, Procter & Gamble, Nationwide, The Wendy's Company, The Kroger Co., JPMorgan Chase, MasterCard, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Siemens, American Express, and others.

I was educated at Valparaiso University and the University of Cincinnati, graduating summa cum laude. In 1990, I joined Information Builders, the vendor of WebFOCUS BI and iWay enterprise integration products, and for over a dozen years served in branch leadership roles. For several years, I also led technical teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the custom software services arm of Xerox.

Since 2007, I have provided enterprise BI services such as: strategic advice; architecture, design, and software application development of intelligence systems (interactive dashboards and mobile); data warehousing; and automated modernization of legacy reporting.
