There are lot of questions which needs clarity before organizations starts providing BI on mobile devices. What sort of information can be published on mobiles? Does existing data warehouse architecture supports mobile BI? Is it really that simple to publish any report on mobile or it involves lot of infrastructure support? What value-add organizations can get by implementing it? Is it really cost effective? Does support staff needs any additional training to handle it?
