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.

Case Study: Quick


Quick, the largest European fast-food chain, found it challenging to oversee operations and communicate among its 404 locations. With an old spreadsheet-based system, 50 to 70 percent of the company’s time was spent on obtaining data rather than acting on it. The company can now rapidly integrate and access data, so management spends more time on expansion than on data management. Find out the new system’s other benefits.
