Not every existing BI application at your company needs to be available on mobile. Consider how you use your smartphone or tablet PC in your personal life you quickly consume blogs, exchange text messages and perform searches for bursts of information. Mobile BI works the same way. It should provide users a consumption-based model with limited analytical capabilities. A full-on analysis-based model works better on laptops and PCs, which have the speed and power for long, complicated analysis without giving users "mobile carpal tunnel." Determine which dashboards and reports will provide value to users at-a-glance. Leave the ad-hoc analysis to desktop BI.

Businesses should avoid the following pitfalls as they dive into mobile BI deployments, according to global BI vendor arcplan.
