Gartner Comments – TIBCO Extended Results Acquisition Shows that the Future of BI Is Real-Time and Mobile

image

Gartner just finished their write-up on TIBCO’s acquisition of Extended Results and it is very positive.

Extended Results will help TIBCO Software differentiate its Spotfire mobile offering with location- and time-aware key performance indicators. These features could make business activity monitoring accessible to business users.

You can download the report at the Spotfire web site.

Question – Why look for your own insights when they can be delivered to you automatically? #mydata #mobilebi

image

Self-serve business intelligence is all the rage.  Get your data sets, mash up your data and find your own insights.  But guess what?  Your data sets are out of date the instant they’re downloaded.  You spend hours, if not days, trying to figure out and map your data sets – all the while your insights are meaning different things to the person next to you.

image

Self-serve business intelligence is important and great – but it is only for an elite few in your organization.  It is time to re-think how you use your data to monitor and manage your business.

PUSHBI by Extended Results is the answer to the PRODUCTIVITY DRAIN that is going on in your company.  PUSHBI will turn it into a PRODUCTIVITY GAIN.

Building LOB Apps for the Windows Store @ch9 – Mobile BI with http://pushbi.com #mobilebi #mydata

We always love it when Microsoft demos our mobile business intelligence solution, PUSHBI, to an audience and we find out later!   My lead developer, Brian, was watching the build videos on Channel 9 and came across his work being demoed at the build conference.  The guy did a great job on demoing the solution.  Check out the video link below

Thanks Microsoft, we enjoy the plugs!

One of my customers sent me this photo of him in 1st class using PUSHBI on his iPad.  He was flying at 35,000 feet on his way to Chicago.   Think about it…  Instant access to your  business data, anywhere, anytime on any device.

Is your business Real-time or Past-time? #PUSHBI

With a simple glance at your own business data, are you confident that you know how to improve your customer relationships, increase revenue and maximize operational efficiencies? If not, your competitors could be a few steps ahead and you may want to think about hopping on the real-time train.

Within a 15 to 30 second glance at CNBC or Bloomberg, we immediately know what’s going on in the market with personalized information that is presented in a form that allows us to make quick, informed, better decisions. So why don’t we manage and monitor our businesses in the same way?

image

Many organizations continue to make reactive decisions based on summarized historical data, even still using two-dimensional charts and simple spreadsheets to base their decisions on. Just crazy.

Others have automated their ops, resulting in large amounts of valuable data residing underutilized in incompatible systems – an untapped resource, just waiting for discovery.

Software vendors keep telling us the answer to taming all of this information overload is all about big data and self-serve BI analytics – but they’re just trying to sell us a bunch of software licenses we don’t need. Rather than point us toward big data, expecting us to make use and sense of it all, what we really need is access to well-defined sets of information that allow us to do our jobs better. Today’s BI users aren’t sitting at desks and likely include every role within the entire workforce. Execs want to be self-sufficient and managers need to get their team members on the same page and included in the decision-making.

Good thing we have PUSHBI……

image

Access to all of your data on your mobile device with visually interactive and even predictive insights allows executives, managers and professionals to make better and faster decisions more often. You can break free from the past and turn your business into a business intelligence powerhouse – within hours – and bring the “power to know” to your users and real-time to your business operations.

We’re on Google campus today. What were we doing there? Did we just get Googled? #mobilebi #analytics

image

We flew down to Silicon Valley today for a few meetings and had a chance to stop at Google.  After all my years with Microsoft, it was kind of weird to be on the Google campus.  None the less, it’s a pretty interesting place!

image

I love that my VP of Services is on his phone checking his metrics with PUSHBI.  I was on him about utilization and the need for more consultants.  Oh, did you know the food at Google is free?

image

We visited where Android OS is developed and were excited to see they have Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwiches out front.  Totally funny and makes me hungry.  Have you figured out why we are here yet?  Might seem obvious.

image

Super fun campus with these crazy looking Google bikes everywhere.  Great idea, but the bikes with baskets are pretty lame for a big guy like me.  We needed one of those self driving cars.  But hey, they ride slow enough that I can still monitor my business in palm of my hand.

Still curious what we’re doing down here on Google’s campus?  Email me – and I’ll let you know what we’re up to!

Enjoy, Patrick
