Availability and Details for Oracle Business Indicators for Apple iPhone

-- With Oracle Business Indicators, CFOs can view the latest company financial trends, sales managers can be alerted to sales performance and customer satisfaction issues, and commodity managers can quickly assess the viability of a supplier -- all from the convenience of the iPhone.

-- Oracle Business Indicators deliver time critical intelligence to a broad group of business users across many disciplines. From the contact center to the order fulfillment department, managers require visibility at a moment's notice. For example, contact center managers can monitor call volume to determine proper staffing levels in order to provide superior service to their customers. Also, customer fulfillment managers concerned about a significant spike in customer demand for a product can monitor the available quantity to fulfill new orders.

-- Oracle Business Indicators offers a highly intuitive user interface designed specifically for the mobile business user to browse, search and locate business performance metrics and view metric details in an engaging display. OBIEE administrators can easily control access to a defined set of metrics based upon each user's roles and responsibilities.

User configuration options allow users to select the relevant indicators to their role and preferences for browsing.

-- Oracle plans to follow this initial release with support for key ERP business approval processes with rich analytical context. For example, while en route to meetings, an executive or manager would be able to quickly review and respond to pending approvals for new employee hires or expense reports, with supporting analytics, making informed decisions without delay.

-- Oracle intends to release rich CRM solutions for the iPhone with applications that help users be productive when mobile; collaborate and share information with colleagues and customers, and manage leads, accounts, opportunities and forecasts, all through the iPhone.
