As we start to see an increase in flexible working and working remotely, we also see an increase in workers using mobile devices to view their data. The data analytics software industry has had to pay attention and provide mobile-friendly presentation and apps.
This is something we have definitely seen in the latest software releases over the past six months. Today’s workforce conduct business from multiple locations at any time. Employees therefore expect mobile capabilities from their software and organizations have to deliver. However, to provide analytics on small devices can be challenging. We are not talking about tablet devices, as these translate across from the original web application effectively.
Now the data visualization reports have to support all size screens from laptops to mobile devices. Vendors are divided by their approach to addressing this issue. Some software’s have invested in applications that are functional on both IOS and Android systems. It is important to note that the majority of these mobile adaptions have had to simplify their interactive functionality due to the small display. This can range from allowing the developer to study the user interaction and leverage this data to guide development to being more user engagement focused.
