Yellowfin integrates Storyboard with new Mobile BI iPad appOctober 4, 2013 No Comments
Global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, has launched a new version of its native iPad application for Mobile BI, which incorporates Storyboard – its interactive PowerPoint-like presentation and collaboration module for BI content.
The application has also been restyled in line with Apple’s recent iOS 7 update, offering a sleeker and smoother user experience. A new Browse Page enables users to search, find and interact with BI content – including reports, dashboards and Storyboards – faster.

“Yellowfin’s new iPad app builds on our consumer-oriented approach to BI, as well as our commitment to deliver clients the most immersive and collaborative user experience possible,” said Rabie. “By adding Yellowfin’s Storyboard functionality, users are able to integrate fully interactive BI content with a familiar presentation format, enabling people of any business background to easily share and benefit from data-based insights anywhere, anytime.
“Yellowfin’s new iPad app for Mobile BI brings report interaction, market-leading ease of use and information collaboration together, within a single application, to change the way people use Mobile BI by shifting the focus from technology to people.”
The iPad application is available for free download from Apple’s App Store and comes as part of a standard Yellowfin license.
This latest application replaces Yellowfin’s previous native iPad application – released in November 2011 – and complements the recent addition of Yellowfin’s hybrid HTML 5 application for Android devices, which was released in April this year. The new iPad app also retains all the features and functionality introduced in the previous version.
Yellowfin offers customers the ability to receive mobile analytics out-of-the-box, on any device or platform at no additional cost, via native applications for the iPhone, iPad, hybrid HTML 5 application for Android devices or Web-browser.
Storyboard was made publicly available, as a component of the core Yellowfin application, in December 2012.

The Yellowfin Storyboard is a revolutionary new approach to Business Intelligence (BI) and business communications, and is set to rewrite the way people consume and act on their data. The platform represents a significant addition to Yellowfin’s renowned collaborative capabilities, firmly cementing Yellowfin’s position as a leader in Collaborative BI.
Yellowfin’s Storyboard is a fully integrated and interactive PowerPoint-like presentation and collaboration module for BI content, which redefines the information paradigm for communicating and acting on data.
Storyboard’s presentation-oriented User Interface (UI) enables the fact-based insight gleaned from BI to be naturally incorporated into organizational decision-making processes, while empowering a wider array of people from non data-centric backgrounds to share and benefit from BI.
Storyboard is fully integrated into the core Yellowfin application, and comes as part of a standard Yellowfin license. Users access Storyboard by logging into their Yellowfin instance via the browser and navigating to the Storyboard tab on the Yellowfin UI.
By blending BI with a comprehensive presentation platform, Storyboard enables users to integrate fully interactive data-rich presentations into their natural decision-making processes, to generate an analytics culture, realize a better Return on Investment (ROI) and drive real fact-based action.
