Yellowfin a Top Scoring Solution Again: DAS Mobile BI Study
International Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, has
outscored big name players again in Dresner Advisory Services’ (DAS)
latest Mobile Business Intelligence Market Study.
Melbourne, VIC, November 23, 2011 -- International Business Intelligence
(BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, has outscored big name players again in
Dresner Advisory Services’ (DAS) latest Mobile Business Intelligence
The October 2011 study ranked BI vendor’s mobile capabilities according
to the number of platforms supported, the level of platform integration
and range of features offered.
Yellowfin’s Mobile BI platform scored a total of 17 points out of a
possible 22, awarding the Australian based vendor the equal second
highest score. The highest score achieved was 18. Yellowfin was also
awarded the equal second highest score in the February 2011 edition.
“This result confirms that our consumer-oriented and collaborative
approach to Mobile BI is a winning strategy,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen
Rabie. “The consumerization of BI, combined with an increasingly mobile
and technologically savvy workforce, means that more people will need,
and should have access to, self-service reporting and analytics. People
should be able to access vital corporate data anytime, irrespective of
location, device or platform.”
Rabie said that Yellowfin’s approach to Mobile BI empowers end-users from
any business background with fact-based insight.
Report author, former Gartner Research Fellow and President and Founder
of DAS, Howard Dresner, stated in the report that he expects Mobile BI to
revolutionize the way people use and consume business information.
“This latest findings report shows strong evidence that Mobile BI is
taking hold – broadly,” said Dresner. “We believe that we’re in the midst
of a profound shift toward Mobile BI (and mobile computing). We believe
this paradigm shift will affect everyone and have as much impact as the
Internet did, over time."
“The impact of Mobile BI… will change the way that we work, our ability
to respond more quickly and to align towards common purpose. This notion
of pervasiveness has always been the mission of BI, which may now finally
be realized with the catalyst of mobile computing,” said Dresner.
Yellowfin offers customers the ability to receive mobile analytics out-
of-the-box, on any device or platform, via native applications for the
iPhone, iPad and Android platforms as well as new HTML 5 integration.
