How Roambi ES4 Works

Designed from the ground up for the mobile environment, Roambi Analytics ES4 is comprised of three major components: the Enterprise Server software, the Roambi Publisher, and the Roambi Analytics™ App.

1. Roambi Enterprise Server

Roambi ES4 tightly integrates with a wide range of databases, Business Intelligence (BI) systems and data sources, including OLAP cubes. (See “Specifications” below for more detail.)

Databases BI Systems Other Data Sources
Microsoft SQL Server SAP BusinessObjects Microsoft Excel
Teradata SAP Crystal Reports CSV
Oracle IBM Cognos HTML Tables
MySQL Oracle Essbase  
Hive Oracle Hyperion  
IBM Netezza Microsoft Reporting Services  
IBM DB2 Microsoft Analysis Services  
PostgreSQL SAS  
Amazon Redshift QlikView  
ParAccel Salesforce CRM  
SAP Hana    

Roambi ES 4 offers the choice to leverage the native BI system or database to create stunning Roambi views. Roambi ES 4 can leverage the native BI source system API for connections, security integrity, document retrieval and refresh - as well as document level metadata. Alternatively, Roambi ES 4 offers direct access to databases through its JDBC Connector. In this scenario, all security settings are set forth at the database level. This allows Roambi ES4 to publish Roambi files (the interactive visualizations) back to the Business Intelligence system or Roambi-supported content portal where they are secured using the existing security infrastructure from your environment - eliminating the need to establish a new set of security rules.

The Roambi App

2. Roambi Publisher

The point-and-click Roambi Publisher quickly transforms business reports and data into elegant and immersive mobile analytics, instantly delivered to any iPhone or iPad. It lets you create your mobile visual analytics from award-winning Roambi Views (templates) that dramatically reduce visualization design time. It also gives you the ability to access and view Roambi visual analytics within a web browser, giving end-users a single user interface regardless of the data source or viewing device.

3. The Roambi Analytics™ App

The Roambi Analytics™ empowers business users by transforming the critical information they use into stunning visualizations delivered to their iPhone or iPad - anytime, anywhere. An enterprise-grade app that provides businesses of all sizes with the ability to quickly share the information business users need, Roambi Analytics™ also lets you store, manage and refresh your data right from the palm of your hand.
