Cutting the cord for mobile BI
Whether you're a jet-setting CEO who needs instant access to real-time data for decisions on the go, or an account exec who needs the latest sales information before a customer call, you can have that information in the palm of your hand since SAS now delivers business intelligence (BI) to mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and Blackberry Bold or Torch smart phones.
Through a technology partnership with MeLLmo, SAS Enterprise BI customers can purchase Roambi™ for SAS, a server and adapter bundle that allows them to transform SAS reports and data into secure, interactive mobile dashboards. Users can tap, turn and swipe to display, share and analyze the company's latest information on supported mobile devices.
In addition, SAS offers targeted mobile apps aimed at specific business issues. For example, a retail space planning app replaces paper-based planograms with 3-D renderings on an iPad, allowing retailers to receive updates wirelessly in response to space allocation or product position changes. Check out a few of our applications to see new ways to interact with data on the go.
