Today, at the SAP SAPPHIRE® Now Conference, MeLLmo Inc. creator of Roambi, the leading business app for interactive mobile analytics, announced Roambi Flow, an innovative business app and information publishing platform that moves beyond business intelligence and lets people easily create and share all types of information and intelligence in simple, intuitive and engaging business reports — securely, on the iPad.
Built from the ground up to leverage the unique experience of the iPad, Roambi Flow allows people to tell the story behind their numbers through engaging magazine-style reports and publications built with a simple point and click publisher tool. Instead of conventional quarterly reports, BI dashboards, and slide decks, Roambi Flow integrates interactive Roambi analytics, text, graphics, video and collaborative content, in a secure format that protects the confidentiality of critical information. Roambi Flow for businesses requires Roambi ES3 and will be available in June 2011; a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) version will be available in Fall 2011
"Even while technology has enabled us to easily view information from our smartphone or tablet, business services have not adapted to these intuitive, interactive devices in the same way consumer apps have," said Santiago Becerra, CEO of MeLLmo Inc. "We believe business reports and presentations can be as interactive and engaging as the digital magazines or even games you find in the app store, and we created Roambi Flow to give people a better way to share business information. Roambi Flow has the potential to transform both the way businesses create and consume reports and presentations, and the way publishers and content holders reach their desired audiences."
"The ability to access, interact, analyze, and collaborate with business information presented like a magazine or newspaper will change the way business operates. Our benchmark research into Information Applications has found the demand to simplify information access and publishing using mobile technology," said Mark Smith, CEO & Chief Research Officer of Ventana Research. "Roambi Flow as an information platform and set of tools provides business the access and publish capabilities for easily reading and interacting with information on the Apple iPad. Combining this capability with the ability to access information from SAP and any Business Intelligence or Analytics system now revolutionizes the value of information for every organization."
