Today’s internet-breaking (literally, Twitter had some issues keeping up with the excitement) coverage of the Apple launch of the iPad got us to thinking about Business Intelligence form factors. The iPhone and other PDA’s have business intelligence tools available today. But we wonder how much the iPhone is actually used to do anything business intelligence related other than look at a dashboard and maybe a report given the amount of screen real estate. Enter the iPad. With screen real estate of 9.7 inches, is this a device usable for deeper analytic business intelligence purposes?
We are talking here about the nights and weekends usage factor from home. Would executives and line of business managers use this platform for business intelligence more so than they do today with an iPhone or other PDA?
