Early this year, one of our clients came up with a requirement to customize the SAP Mobile BI app for iOS and that set the ball rolling at Visual BI to come up with our own customized version of the app.

Organizations see customizations as a requirement for several reasons:

  • Brings an in-house application feel
  • There is better user engagement
  • Gives a personalized user experience
  • Helps secure the app according to the organization’s policies

I have tried to cover some of the customizations that are possible through the SAP BusinessObjects Mobile SDK, through this post:

Apart from these app customizations, did you know we could also do the following ?

  • SSO to BI Mobile Server
  • SSO to VPN, i.e. when the user launches the app, it will automatically login to VPN (Cisco any connect).
  • Mobile Iron configuration
