“Yellowfin has been identified as a Mobile BI vendor of choice, performing strongly in all of Dresner’s Mobile BI market studies since the initial report back in 2010,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “This continued recognition demonstrates our ability to deliver a world-class Mobile BI experience for our customers, and vindicates our aim to make the benefits of self-service BI available to as many people as possible.”
Report author, former Gartner Research Fellow and President and Founder of DAS, Howard Dresner, said that new technologies and attitudes – affecting the consumption of business information – now meant that Mobile BI was a clear strategic focus for BI customers and vendors alike.
“We’re in the midst of a profound shift toward Mobile BI and mobile computing,” stated Dresner in the report. “Through the confluence of new technologies and social change, Mobile BI has become mainstreamed. In fact, for some, it’s the only way they consume Business Intelligence content… its impact is now both clear and profound.”
