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.

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.

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.
