Business doesn't stop just because you're on the go. See how Oracle BI Mobile makes consuming BI on the go simple, secure and fast. It is the only mobile app that provides a complete immersive experience while providing a full range of analytic functionally from interactive dashboards to location intelligence. It lets you initiate business processes right from your iPad while maintaining complete security on your own servers. Oracle BI Mobile is integrated at the core of Oracle's Business Intelligence Foundation and runs even better on Exalytics.

Rapid deployment – all your reports and dashboards are immediately available for mobile

Data security – completely integrated with BIEE's security

Save locally – Save your analyses locally for review, even when you're completely off the grid

Leverage existing data sources – no requirement to move data, access all sources via the BI Server


BI Foundation Mobile Demo

Use this LINK to download the PDF document instructions to setup your own iPad to access these live demos.

This can also be shared with and used for customers that you’re already engaged with, and where you will work to resell them the OBI Mobile option.

Demo script: The configuration PDF contains some familiarisation steps, but for a more complete demo guide you can open the app where you will see the content available, and open the folder “3. Analysis and Dashboards”, then choose the dashboard “3.50 Mobility”.  This dashboard is the demo that accompanies the YouTube video found here. You can learn this business script and take your customers through this demo. 


BI Applications Mobile Demo

BI Applications have also been made available via an OBI mobile app Demo including; Financials, HR, Marketing, Procurement & Spend, Projects and Supply chain. 

Demo Scripts: The mobile app is using the same dashboards and data as the BI Applications Test Drives, which partners can access here. These existing demo scripts for these BI Applications can be used with the BI mobile app.  The instructions regarding the interface will be different, but the story line is the same. 

Partners can access the BI Applications mobile demos by using the same configuration as for the BI Foundation mobility demo, but use the logon credentials below instead;

Copies of Presentations from BI & EPM Partner Community Forum

We had more than 100 partners participating at this year’s EMEA Oracle BI & EPM Partner Community forum in June 2012 at Istanbul, Turkey; making it a success for all who were there.  The overall feedback from participants was very positive on the sessions from both Oracle Product Development, and those presented by partners.  And it provided a great opportunity to network with partner peers, and meet new contacts for potential co-operation in the future.  

OPN Partners can get access to the presentations by clicking on the following link: EMEA BI & EPM Partner Community event presentations, and selecting the Presentations tab (located at the top of the page).

If you are not yet a member, we invite you to join the Oracle EMEA Partner community for Oracle BI & EPM @ Community Web site.
