To MicroStrategy, a business intelligence (BI) software developer, the iPad presented an opportunity to extend their suite of BI apps to a powerful and portable platform. While businesses have long been committed to the laptop as the gold standard of portable business tools, MicroStrategy recognized that the iPad could function as a sleek and efficient tool for managers, sales representatives and content consumers. MicroStrategy was among the first companies with a business intelligence offering, releasing MicroStrategy Mobile for the iPad, a free app with data analysis, reporting, graphing, dashboards, data visualization, data mining and forecasting against enterprise data within three months of the iPad’s release date.
