Mobile Business Intelligence Delivery in Action

Capgemini empowers executives with up-to-date data on the move.

The Situation

In 2010, Capgemini was engaged to build the first SAP BusinessObjects mobile reporting solution for a major consumer products company in North America. The firm’s top fifty executives and vice presidents were seeking a way to gain immediate access to unit sales volume data. Although the executives were already receiving these reports on a weekly basis, the data was displayed on a spreadsheet, and its limitations and the report’s design meant that it was very difficult and cumbersome to view critical metrics on the go.

The Solution

In collaboration with the business users, Capgemini delivered four mobile-enabled reports to give them the information they needed on demand. The solution empowered the users to make more informed decisions faster by providing them with accurate, up-to-date information in an engaging, interactive and easy-to-read format.

The Result

The solution created a tremendous buzz around mobile reporting within the consumer products company, which is now putting extra focus and effort on mobile reporting as part of every Business Intelligence (BI) project. After Capgemini’s successful roll-out of the initial four reports, the services provider was contracted again in 2011 to build an additional three reports for the client’s executives. Capgemini was also awarded with two additional Mobile BI projects: one for another business unit and one for another geography – Latin America.
