Information Builders has upgraded its business intelligence (BI) software to include new native capabilities for Apple and Android devices. As reported in this PC World article, the new WebFocus Mobile release also uses Information Builders' Active Technology capabilities which offer an embedded analytics engine and an interactive user experience.
"WebFocus Mobile provides device-specific features for the iPad, iPhone and Android-based phones and tablets, including native menus, controls and gestures, according to a statement.
"In addition, the software can automatically detect a device type and screen size, then morph the views accordingly. This feature cuts down on development effort normally expended on supporting multiple device platforms, Information Builders said."
