With the 4.8 release Pentaho, the Open source Business Intelligence vendor, adds more value in the mobile BI area. With this release users can view the reports on the go on their iPads. Pentaho Mobile offers a complete business analytics experience, including interactive analysis, rich visualization, dashboards, operational and enterprise reports on the iPad.
The major advantage of this for users is the instant and interactive visualization facility they get by being able to view the reports anywhere/anytime using their iPads. The major features of Pentaho mobile are as follows:
1) Immersive visual discovery, fully touch-enabled 2)
2) Attractive, boardroom-style dashboards, reports and visualizations
3) On the go analysis creation
4) Exploration of any data with a broad set of interactive charts types, including:
i) Bubble charts
ii) Scatter plots
iii) Heat grids
iv) Geo maps
Another advantage that Pentaho mobile has over other similar tools is that while others allow only viewing and interacting with standard, pre-built reports, Pentaho users can create their own ad hoc reports and analysis, without IT, right from their iPad.
Pentaho mobile also takes advantages of all the native gestures of iPad, like Native navigation and browsing; Pinch to zoom, tapping, drag and drop; Swiping through open documents etc. to give a seamless and comfortable user experience. It provides a unique user experience for iPad users by allowing them to personalize the navigation features, such as Tagging favorites and Customizing start up location.
Pentaho’s web-based and open architecture enables ISV and SaaS providers to build a wide variety of industry-specific or domain-specific analytic applications for mobile.
Pentaho provides a single, consistent business intelligence and analytics experience across your desktop, laptop and iPad. If you happen to access your content using an iPad, Pentaho will automatically detect that and deliver a touch-enabled experience.
One special feature which is good about this release is the ability to customize start up locations on the iPad. Keep important items like sales maps ready to go for quick updates or presentations. There's also a section for favorites so all the most important reports people need are easy to find.
Overall this release just makes using Pentaho more sense.
