What is Microsoft’s mobile BI strategy?

with 5 comments

My post about Sharepoint and the MS BI strategy last month generated a lot of debate; an equally hot topic is that of Microsoft’s mobile BI strategy, or lack of it. It’s something I’ve heard a lot of people sounding off about recently which is why I found the this article interesting:

Apart from a diplomatic quote from Donald Farmer in his current guise as QlikView evangelist-in-chief, the article picks up on a thread from the Microsoft BI Facebook page and perhaps tries to read too much into it…

    Dave, now that CTP3 is out, let’s get working on the MS Mobile BI development we’ve been talking about. I’ll email you. CTP3 has some really great functionality we can incorporate.

  4. [...] After the mobile BI market already got big attention last year and most of the big platform vendors already had their tool/app in place back then, the positioning of Microsoft in the market of mobile BI was long awaited.
