MIS AG Australia is making inroads into the mobile devices market in an effort to cement a 30 per cent share of the local business intelligence sector.
A newcomer to the Australian market, MIS AG has made its business intelligence solutions available on personal digital assistants (PDAs) and WAP (wireless application protocol) enabled mobile phones.
"Having business intelligence management solutions available to users via mobile devices adds new functionality to the established MIS Decisionware product suite, allowing users unprecedented levels of efficiency and convenience," said MIS AG Australia's managing director, Martin KratkyMIS AG Australia drives the bulk of its products directly, however, the company intends to distribute its new wireless range through existing partners, including Datum Group, BDO Group Australia and SDM.
MIS AG's solution is a Web-based, platform-independent software suite for planning, reporting, consolidation and analysis. All data retrieved via wireless technology can be used with various analytic data stores like MIS ALEA and MS SQL Server, among others. A connector from the Web server responds to this information and a dynamic Wireless Markup Language Code is generated which contains the requested information from the data source. The Web server, which converts the HTTP protocol into WAP, is connected to a WAP gateway, allowing authorised users to access the information over most wireless technologies. WAP access rights are administered on four different levels to ensure data security, MIS claims. An individual user's data-set may only be accessed after entering a PIN code.
