Techopedia Explains Mobile Business Intelligence (Mobile BI)

MBI works much like a standard BI software/solution but it is designed specifically for handheld users. Typically, MBI requires a client end utility to be installed on mobile devices, which remotely/wirelessly connect over the Internet or a mobile network to the primary business intelligence application server. Upon connection, MBI users can perform queries, and request and receive data. Similarly, clientless MBI solutions can be accessed through a cloud server that provides Software as a Service business intelligence (SaaS BI).
