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.
