Mobilize BI

In this presentation learn how you can drive more value from your existing BI infrastructure and maximize the value of any new initiatives. See examples of Microsoft's mobile BI offerings, Power BI and Datazen, and how these solutions can provide insight and a better self-service experience. By utilizing mobile BI you can:

  • Ensure actionable data is available when and where it is needed
  • Increase visibility of key business metrics
