I get many questions about the usage, pervasiveness, and adaption of mobile BI applications. What's a mobile BI application? Beyond a simple delivery of alerts, URLs, or actual reports via email - functionality that has existed for years - here are a few newer approaches to deliver BI on a mobile device:
Other than usage by executives, key sales people and field service personnel, I do not see a wide spread usage of mobile BI apps deep and broad in organizations. But more importantly, I do see a trend of developing applications and architectures to allow a business user to continue to be productive using his/her laptop while in disconnected, offline mode. Any executive, salesperson, or a consultant who spends most of his/her time on the road will definitely appreciate ability to access most of the BI applications and content while being offline. I know I personally would love that kind of functionality, since I mostly live in seat 16C (yes, my status on some airlines often gets me exit row aisle seats) these days.
