Mobile business intelligence has evolved from being a nice-to-have to a must-have for many of today’s businesses, and mobile capabilities are now high on the list when organizations are considering BI tools.
With the global workforce becoming more and more mobile and business moving faster than ever, it is crucial that people can take their KPIs and latest business information with them when they’re on the go. If not, business people become frustrated that they have to revert to making decisions based on gut-feel.
On Wednesday, we gave the reins over to our partners, Analysis Factory, as they hosted a webinar explaining how they make their DecisionPoint™ dashboards user-friendly, highly visual and engaging.
Viewers were taken on a journey to see, from scratch, how the team at Analysis Factory created their dashboard gallery. We’re talking how to build a dashboard in a matter of minutes, how to add images and slideshows to enrich the dashboard and draw the user in and how to add SVG maps to create a custom visualization – all super cool features of DecisionPoint™ that make for highly engaging dashboards.
Antivia has received a lot of coverage from Gartner lately. We were mentioned in the 2015 Magic Quadrant, and in the hype cycle for Business Intelligence and Analytics from August in the mobile BI section.
And, as recently as last week, DecisionPoint™ was mentioned during the ‘Delivering outstanding BI on a budget’ webinar hosted by Kurt Schlegel and Neil Chandler, both Gartner research VPs, as one of a handful of vendors ideal for delivering BI on a budget.
Building a basic dashboard with a few bar and line charts and some labels is a really good start but to be able to draw some real insight from your data and increase user adoption rates, you’ll need some additional features that enable users to dig deeper and investigate the information they are seeing.

Agile BI is one of the hottest trends in 2015 focusing on a circular delivery model where you plan, deliver, evaluate and redeliver in short cycles, providing value almost instantly.
Because agile BI allows you to deliver information fast, analysts have said the methodology will add value to BI investments as well as increase BI adoption rates. So why aren’t more organizations adopting agile methodologies and tools?
