Umesha D. K, Fazlulla K., Mohammed Rafi



Big data is a field that treats ways to analyze, systematically extract information from, or otherwise deal with data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software. Huge amount of data produced in business can be processed to get useful information using Business intelligence (BI). Business intelligence comprises the strategies and technologies used by enterprises for the data analysis of business information. BI technologies provide historical, current and predictive views of business operations. Mobile business intelligence (MBI) is the ability to access BI-related data such as Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), business metrics, and dashboards on mobile devices. The MBI provides users with necessary information and content, regardless of their location and time, in order to gain business insights through information analysis using applications optimized for mobile devices. Although in recent years, the business intelligence and analytics has gained an increasing amount of interest among researchers and practitioners, there is a little academic literature available on MBI. This survey is intended to study the adoption of Business Intelligence (BI) with special emphasis on mobile business intelligence in various fields during past 10 years and highlights the challenges faced by users in its implementation. The study also emphasized on relationship between MBI and big data analytics, application of MBI, and difficulties in using the MBI tools.
