Business Intelligence (BI)


Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.

Mobile BI: State of the Market



Mobility in the Workplace

According to recent reports from Ericsson, data traffic through mobile devices increased by 28 percent globally between Q3 and Q4 of 2012, with 140 million new mobile subscriptions in Q4 of 2012. Mobile subscriptions worldwide had grown at a pace of 8 percent year over year by Q1 of 2013, and the number of mobile broadband subscriptions grew at a rate of 45 percent to reach around 1.7 billion. At this point, it is fair to say that the world has turned mobile, and there is no turning back. While regions such as Africa and Asia Pacific are seeing tremendous growth, there is no region in the world that has not seen important growth in mobile subscription rates. Mobile devices have been assimilated globally, and are here to stay.

As mobile devices gain a stronghold of virtually every aspect of life—we use them to communicate, play, read, buy, and even to wake up each morning—they have also come to play a big role in the workplace. Mobile devices can be used to perform common office tasks, such as sending e-mail, but they are increasingly being used to gain critical insight into business processes and help companies better service their customers. As software providers are adding mobile versions of their enterprise software solutions to their portfolios, organizations can realize the potential that these technologies offer in many areas of the business, such as customer relationship management (CRM), field service management (FSM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and business analytics, to name a few. As a result, many mobile services have become a commodity and hence essential components for the operations of many organizations.

According to a recent Citrix Enterprise Mobility Report, companies of all sizes are already managing a large portfolio of mobile applications in their workflow. According to the survey the report is based on, organizations of all sizes have already incorporated, on average, 216 mobile applications into their departments, while small organizations use an average of 21 mobile apps and medium-sized companies use 141 mobile apps. Some organizations report having up to 337 mobile apps already in use.

10 Reasons Why Developers Need Application Performance Monitoring


In today's business world, user expectations for application performance are incredibly high. This comes at a time when, from a developer's standpoint, challenges are constantly growing. In particular, developing business applications today is more complex than when a single application ran on dedicated hardware with its traffic running over a corporate backbone network.

Applications typically are comprised of multiple components, each running on different systems—virtualized, distributed, hybrid, and cloud—all interconnected using a variety of company-owned, public Internet-based, or even cellular networks.

To build such modern applications, developers could use some help. That is where application performance management (APM) solutions come in.
