Mobile Reporting

Fingertip-ready information 24/7 on any platform or mobile device


Mobile Reporting of business intelligence is fundamentally different than traditional or proprietary software reporting. The devices are different (tablets instead of desktops), the needs are different (get details for this customer standing here, not all customers) and the attention span of your audience is different (on the go, probably distracted.)

Needless to say, the potential benefits are huge; you can stop making decisions without the benefit of data. Mobile business intelligence can be woven much more closely to where work is getting done: hallway conversations, stand-up meetings, executive briefings, and discussions with customers and partners.

Mobile Reporting also means that business intelligence can be spread more widely throughout the organisation, promoting a culture of data-driven decision making.

Less than 10% of the people in most organisations are using business intelligence. That’s a huge failure of traditional business intelligence initiatives.

Mobile Reporting offers the possibility of finally spreading BI throughout the entire organisation. Our modelling of the forecast demand for growth and adoption of mobile reporting will double in the next year.


The pernix approach to Mobile Reporting is:

  • Avoid dashboard proliferation;
  • Write to a smaller form factor;
  • Consider an audience on the go;
  • Allow drill-down;
  • Offer filters;
  • Provide content search capability;
  • Account for new mobile scenarios;
  • Leverage mobile’s natural process of collaboration; and
  • Provide great training.

Where is it when I need it?

MBI applications optimises traditional BI reports so they can be viewed easily on a small screen and is ideal for displaying key performance indicators (KPIs) and alerts on small screens with simple charts, graphs and Sparklines.
