Mobile BI Design Framework: Performance with a User Focus
When we discuss performance in mobile business intelligence (BI), we often talk about two components: response time and availability. I discussed the response time in detail in a previous blog. Today, I want to expand on availability.
Availability is sometimes referred to as “up time,” but it goes beyond that. We need to manage performance with a user focus to make sure our priorities support business execution, not hinder it.
Managing performance of any technical solution is a tricky business and mobile BI is no different. We primarily deal with two elements: What we can manage and what may be out of our control. To use a tennis analogy, we should always focus our energy on the former to make sure we can eliminate unforced errors.
