Great write up by Oracle and which is totally true. They haven’t seen PushBI and the soon to come WorkPlace Mobile in May.
“I liken the BI mobility frenzy to buying classic cars. Classic Cars have two buying groups – teenagers and middle-age folks looking to tinker. Teenagers look at the pin-stripes and the paint job while middle-agers (like me) kick the tires a bit and look under the hood to check out the quality and reliability of the engine. Mobile BI tools sure look sexy but don’t go very far without an engine and a transmission or an integration strategy.”
I look forward to taking Cloud Office for a spin to see how good the spreadsheet technologies are. With all these Cloud Office applications on the market, it is offering some interesting reporting opportunities.
update Oracle announced Thursday that it has agreed to buy Hyperion Solutions for $3.3 billion, in a move to expand in the area of performance management systems.
Talk about consolidating the industry…
