Session Description
In 1995, Bill Gates said the goal at Microsoft was "... empowering
people through great software any time, any place, and on any device.”
Taking that to heart, 2013 will be known as the year of Microsoft Mobile
BI. A lot of innovation has come out of the product teams over the past
few months, including some exciting new mobile BI capabilities that can
put on-the-go business leaders and information workers in the
information driver seat (but no data exploring while driving, please!).
Practically every reporting and dashboard product has a mobile
capability, and some new tools have been designed specifically for
tablet devices. Use Power View, SSRS reports, and Excel visuals on your
iPad and Surface RT. Build and use compelling visual dashboards and
analytic exploration on almost any device. Most importantly, learn to
design the semantic model layer and security to make all the magic
happen for your business

Understanding Mobile BI Requirements
Fewer features in a more streamlined UI should mean that there are fewer
requirements to manage, right?
…no. Delivering optimized functionality with fewer features requires a better
understanding of the most important requirements!

Mobile Dashboard Design Essentials
• Use well-established visual metaphors
• Simplify!
One of the greatest lessons learned in the new era of portable
device user interface design is that less is more.
We simply can’t just keep adding more features.
• Provide interactivity
• Encapsulate logic in the semantic model
