Making BI Mobile – Information Anywhere…Anytime

Today’s economic and technological landscapes continue to change. Many organizations are challenged to do more with less and to have immediate access to critical data at a touch of a button. In today’s virtual world that button is no longer located at a traditional workstation; it needs to be in the palm of your hand. Now, more than ever, the business case for mobile BI solutions is being developed to keep today’s workforce instantly connected and informed.

At this ALN Roundtable meeting, you will learn how Sears and Kmart loss prevention teams are using mobile BI to dynamically access performance rankings, theft statistics, outlier reports, and a vast array of other data, reports, and charts that visually demonstrate the risks and relative health of a given store location, district, or region. For Sears Holdings Corporation, mobile BI applications have become critical to driving profit while mitigating risk and improving performance.

Ram Kandukuri, Director of Business Intelligence & Systems at Sears Holdings Corporation, will discuss their approach for identifying mobile BI opportunities and leveraging mobile BI as a strategic delivery platform rather than just a development technique. Hear how Ram’s team ensures their BI applications are developed to meet his audience’s expectations for well-developed mobile BI applications that are easy to use, well accepted, clean and intuitive. Ram will also share some of the challenges faced along the way and how those challenges were overcome.

Whether you are just now considering mobile BI for your organization or looking for better ways to deliver existing mobile BI solutions, you won’t want to miss this ALN Roundtable event.
