Business Intelligence Goes Mobile for Android

Actuate Corporation, the people behind BIRT and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, announced Tuesday BIRT Mobile Business Intelligence for Android devices.

With BIRT Mobile, developers can deploy custom BI, dashboards, analytics, reports and interactive content natively on Android mobile devices. BIRT Mobile puts business reports, KPIs, documents, and dashboards into the hands of employees, partners and customers, says the company.

Decision makers can now run their organization from wherever they are on their device of choice, viewing secure, interactive business data on an Android tablet as dynamic dashboards, tables, graphs, charts, visualizations, maps, and documents.

As a native Android application, BIRT Mobile is orientation aware and supports animation, navigation and drill through within its content.

BIRT Mobile for Android deployment options include harnessing Actuate BIRT iServer or BIRT onDemand to access and analyze interactive data, documents, and dashboards in the cloud.

The application is pre-loaded with demonstration dashboards, allowing end users to explore and personalize business data on their Android device. BIRT Mobile can view any open source Eclipse or Actuate BIRT content and is compatible with enterprise deployments of Actuate 11 SP2 and higher.

“BIRT-based mobile BI is in use at a wide range of organizations across multiple industries for their mobile intelligence needs,” said Pete Cittadini, CEO and president of Actuate Corporation.

BIRT Mobile is a free Android app.
