In today’s digital age, mobile devices have become a de facto tool for business, not only performing as communication devices, but as enablers of business activities. In this space, the mobile workforce needs efficient ways to interact with the overload of information delivered to it. In most cases, key data is delivered in the form of PDF or spreadsheet attachments that make consumption on mobile devices cumbersome. To solve the problem, SAP BusinessObjects Roambi, a data visualization and publishing platform, was designed for mobile devices from the ground up with the end user in mind. The visualizations are designed to use the mobile device screen size effectively and enable the user to interact with the reports with engaging functionality and gestures commonly used in other mobile apps.
Most data visualization and publishing tools are designed for the desktop, but today’s users expect business tools to be as easy to use as consumer apps. SAP BusinessObjects Roambi brings data to life with an intuitive user interface designed specifically for mobile access.
Creating the visualizations for SAP BusinessObjects Roambi is a simple process. First, you select your data. Then, using the publisher-guided design, you can transform it into a stunning visualization and share it with your colleagues. In this course, you’ll find out how to create each of the visualizations available for SAP BusinessObjects Roambi, and how to identify the best options to address specific uses cases. You’ll also learn about data extraction and techniques to keep your visualizations updated with the latest data. The course also covers the administration and configuration of your subscription. You’ll learn how to add users, create folders, and define security settings for content distribution.
