To store, retrieve and review business intelligence reports
MicroStrategy has announced the availability of its business intelligence reports, dashboards and scorecards on the Amazon Kindle DX. The company said that its BI users can store, retrieve and review business intelligence reports on the Kindle DX in PDF format while away from the office.
The Kindle DX’s screen reportedly enables users to review and analyse business data, ranging from financial performance dashboard to a 100-page operational report. Users can also share reports and dashboards with others during business meetings.
According to the company, by storing business intelligence reports on the Kindle DX, which possesses more than 3GB of usable storage, users need not print and carry reports with them when they travel.
With MicroStrategy, reports can be sent through e-mail to the Kindle DX and Kindle DX users can receive reports on a scheduled basis, and can set up e-mail alerts triggered by business indicators that inform them of time-sensitive issues. Users can also download business reports and documents to the Kindle DX.
Sanju Bansal, COO of MicroStrategy, said: “MicroStrategy is committed to pervasive BI, where critical business information is readily available wherever and whenever the user needs it. The availability of MicroStrategy reports on the Kindle DX is yet another information touchpoint in the pervasive BI continuum.”
He further said: “In addition to offering BI reports and dashboards on the Kindle DX, MicroStrategy’s capabilities include delivery of business intelligence to other popular mobile devices, including the BlackBerry smartphone and the Apple iPhone.”
