Roambi Offers Mobile BI Data
Mellmo's Roambi ES3 lets users access business intelligence (BI) functionality from four major applications.
Roambi ES3 for the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch lets users access detailed views of BI data through integration with major applications from SAP (NYSE: SAP), IBM (NYSE: IBM), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and now, Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL). According to this report on CRM Buyer, the latest product the company has introduced integrates with Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g, which debuted at Oracle OpenWorld.
"With a sharp focus on analytics, Roambi ES3 for the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch goes deeper than other mobile apps that offer just an element of BI. Roambi serves up six -- soon to be seven -- detailed views of BI data: a trends view, a pie view, a high-end drill down navigation view, a table browser, a virtual file draw, and a comparison tool.
"Many mobile apps for CRM tend to deliver comprehensive versions of the original application. For example, one can use the mobile Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) app on a mobile device to carry out just about any CRM-related function that's possible using the enterprise version on a PC -- from monitoring the pipeline to contacting a lead."
