Cubeware BI app now also available for Android
Cubeware BI app developed in cooperation with Business Partner enables reports and dashboards to be used and processed on Android devices.
Rosenheim, 11 June 2012. Cubeware GmbH, BI (business intelligence) specialist, based in Rosenheim and with seven offices in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the USA, can now provide a native app for Android tablet PCs and smartphones in addition to its BI app for iPhone and iPad.
This gives users the ability to access and process all reports created with the BI front end Cubeware Cockpit V6pro on their mobile devices at no additional cost. The BI app was developed in collaboration with Cubeware Business Partner and mobile development professionals inovex GmbH in Pforzheim and is available on Google Play for download free of charge.
“According to leading analysts, mobile BI is one of the hottest topics on the BI market. Currently, Apple devices in particular are used heavily at management level as a means of access, while smartphones and tablet PCs running the Android operating system are being increasingly used at more general levels. It is therefore important to provide the possibility of mobile BI use especially for this growing group of users. And that is exactly what we are doing with the BI app for Android,” explains Dr Ilias Michalarias, Product Manager at Cubeware GmbH. “The BI app was developed in collaboration with inovex, a partner from our own ecosystem that has extensive expertise in the field of BI and mobile development. It's an ideal combination that is reflected in the speed of development as well as in the quality of the result.”
“Besides iOS, Android is currently positioning itself as the most successful smartphone operating system, not least because of its flexibility, which makes it possible to run and use it on an increasing number of very varied devices. When developing the Cubeware BI app for Android, we were able to contribute our long-standing experience, and this interaction led to a product that gives users of the operating system optimum possibilities for mobile BI,” comments Patrick Thoma, Head of Solution Development at inovex.
Cubeware mobile BI – simple and at no additional cost
The Cubeware BI app makes all reports and dashboards created with Cubeware Cockpit V6pro available to mobile users of all Android devices in their entirety and with immediate effect. Dashboards can be accessed as a complete report or as individual diagrams, numbers can be analysed dynamically using filters, and reports can be commented on and sent via e-mail. Apps like Skype, Twitter and Google+ can also be just as easily provided with PDF reports directly. Operation and navigation through reports on the mobile devices use the familiar and accustomed Cockpit and Android user interface paradigms.
The Cubeware BI app can be used with all Cubeware Cockpit V6pro licences at no additional cost. Existing reports can be accessed immediately by the app. Settings can be made within a report at any time if certain content is not available in mobile form. And, as all reports and dashboards are organised centrally on the team server components of the front end, it is always the exact same report irrespective of whether it is accessed via Android, iOS, the desktop or web application.
