Solver, Webalo Bring Microsoft BI Solutions To Mobile Devices

By PRESS RELEASE — September 02, 2008

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Solver, a Performance Management and Business Intelligence (BI) solutions provider has announced a partnership with Webalo, a leader in mobile business intelligence and creator of The Mobile Dashboard.  This partnership will focus on delivering BI and Performance Management information directly to mobile devices and allowing executives and other mobile employees to access critical information from virtually any location, by means of their PDA, or other mobile device. 

By utilizing Webalo's Mobile Dashboard, Solver is able to transform key reports, dashboards, scorecards, and key performance indicators (KPIs) into easy-to-read, easy-to-navigate mobile applications that adapt automatically to the native user interface of their mobile device. "With BI moving at such a fast pace, offering our customers and partners automated reports and KPIs on their mobile devices is just a natural extension to the Microsoft-based BI solutions we offer," said Nils Rasmussen, Principal of Solver.  Our clients will be thrilled that they can quickly find the data that they need, online or offline, with a dynamic, highly-configurable interface that is tailored to their specific device.

"As more and more companies demand immediate delivery of business intelligence to an increasingly mobile workforce," said Peter Price, president & CEO of Webalo. "We're looking forward to partnering with Solver, one of the leading Microsoft business intelligence (BI) partners, to enable delivery of critical business data as well as performance management information to any kind of mobile device directly to the executives that need it--thereby making Microsoft BI mobility a reality."

Business Intelligence and reporting are a critical application for the mobile workforce, from executives to line managers, for the reason that decision makers at all levels are demanding instant access to key performance indicators about their business. Solver recognizes the value of this solution for the "on-the-go" mobile work force, specifically in the retail space; regional branch managers for example can now have the capability to view sales data and reports with just a click of a button without going from store to store. This solution accurately helps improve productivity by reducing lost time, significantly increasing responsiveness and reducing I.T. costs, by enabling users to sense and respond to changes.

About Webalo
Webalo technology transforms enterprise applications and data to make them compatible with mobile devices. This eliminates the need for traditional custom programming, reducing the deployment of mobile applications from weeks or months to, in most cases, less than a day. The resulting "anywhere, any time, on-demand" availability of enterprise data on handheld devices turns such devices into viable alternatives to desktop, laptop, and palmtop computer hardware, and lets mobile employees work more productively -- on the spot -- to solve problems, answer questions, monitor operations, close sales, and make informed decisions.

The Webalo Mobile Dashboard Service -- available both as a hosted service and as a behind-the-firewall appliance -- lets non-I.T. business administrators securely specify the content of mobile-accessible information, and the companion Webalo Proxy Server configures it, in seconds, to conform to the native user interface of any BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian, or Java-enabled smartphone. Webalo's technology transforms the role of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) into a User Oriented Architecture, enabling Web services to communicate with users as effectively as they communicate with other system services.

Software vendors and system integrators such as Actuate, IBM, Nokia, and RIM are working with Webalo to enhance both their service oriented business applications and their mobile devices. Los Angeles based, Webalo is privately held and was founded in 2000.
