MicroStrategy Showcases Mobile BI at World 2011

MicroStrategy continues to aggressively target mobile business intelligence, especially on the Apple iPhone and iPad platforms.

You may remember back in September 2010 when MicroStrategy switched out 2000 field sales notebooks for tablets. They even offered to give you their mobile BI software for free!  If that is not enough, MicroStrategy will send a consultant onsite for two weeks to build your company's own iPad BI application.

I am not sure if MicroStrategy could make a stronger signal of commitment to the emerging mobile market.

For their upcoming World 2011 conference being held in Las Vegas from January 24 through 27, MicroStrategy puts the iPad front and center.

At the conference, MicroStrategy will save some paper by putting their schedule on an iPad app. You can download a copy here.

If you don't show up with an Apple iPad already in your hand, the software vendor will provide you with a loaner.  But not bringing an iPad to the MicroStrategy World 2011 event would be like not wearing blue jeans to a rodeo.
