TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today introduced TIBCO Spotfire® Mobile Metrics, enabling business users to instantly track the health of the business from any mobile device. Users of Spotfire® Mobile Metrics gain immediate access to the operational metrics they find most critical. Through simple, engaging and intuitive views, Spotfire Mobile Metrics delivers business insights via personalised key performance indicators (KPIs) that empower users with the intelligence needed to understand the current state of their businesses. Now, everyday business users can always have their fingers on the pulse of the business, regardless of where they are.
Through a very simple and intuitive display that works on any mobile device, Spotfire Mobile Metrics elegantly presents operational metrics so users can see progress towards a given goal. For example, a finance executive can learn at a glance how actual spend is tracking to budget. Also, a sales leader can instantly spot her team’s current status towards attaining the quarterly revenue goal. Such hand-held insight into KPIs helps address the thirst for instant insight that today’s increasingly mobile workforce demands.
Organisations can quickly hook up Spotfire Mobile Metrics to display information from virtually any enterprise data source, such as data warehouses and business intelligence applications, so that users of those traditional reporting systems can finally unlock insights with just a swipe of a finger.
“Hundreds, if not thousands, of reports and dashboards get created for employees, yet a majority of employees don’t look at them because it takes too much time,” said Patrick Husting, vice president, TIBCO Spotfire. “In every industry – such as retail, marketing, sales, financial, energy and manufacturing, for example – business users value the ability to quickly glance at key metrics to understand the current state of their business. Mobile Business Intelligence is equipping today’s workforce with critical business information, at the right time, so that they can make more informed decisions, more quickly.”
When self-selected KPIs are delivered via mobile interfaces like Spotfire Mobile Metrics, organisations can easily make available the vast amount of data that already exists, in a form which everyday users can instantly understand and act on.
TIBCO Spotfire Mobile Metrics is available to download free of charge for a 14-day trial.
