[prMac.com] Madrid, Spain - Business & Strategy announced the release of Balanced Scorecard 1.2 for iPad. It's safe to say that the iPad has become one of the best delivery tools for business intelligence (BI), ever. Its form factor, lightweight design, display, and connectivity has caused rapid adoption by companies that need to extend the reach of their business intelligence data and provide pervasive access to performance results. Indeed, the executive suite and top managers have seen how accessibility to performance results can improve operations and increase management productivity. Aberdeen Group recently reported that employees were twice as likely to use business intelligence data if, and only if, it was available in a mobile accessible format.
iPad has fundamentally opened the door to new opportunities for managers to plan, monitor, and maintain strategic goals and targets in surroundings more suitable to favorable observational contexts.
Its agility and always-available window into operational data, make it an ideal strategic dashboard for monitoring and updating business plans. But these benefits are rapidly becoming accessible to more than just managers.
Traditionally, business intelligence has focused on visualizing important operational data for managers and executives. But iPad also broadens the scope of BI benefits by making it relatively inexpensive to include deeper levels of the organization. This is made possible because mobile devices are becoming cheaper and more powerful, and software, such as Balanced Scorecard for iPad (BsC) is affordable and simple enough to use by almost everyone in your organization.
Trends show that there's a new definition of BI participants within the organization, and rightly so. The democratization of BI and strategic planning is sweeping through organizations, not so much because it's an idea whose time has come, but because the mobile revolution has provided opportunities to see and interact with operational plans and data more easily and whenever and wherever it is contextually important.
There are four key factors to include in any BI software in the near future:
