Once you go through this entire topic it becomes much simpler by using “Location Services” feature of SharePlus.
True collaboration is not just about sharing insight, but also about being able to build on top of what others have done. It's this ability to "step on the shoulders of giants", and realize that the slice of information you need, can be easily achieved by tweaking an existing dashboard someone else has shared. That's the real potential of collaborative business intelligence, the ability to collaborate on the creation and usage of business intelligence assets.
With so much data being sent, received, and stored on their systems, firms likely want to create dashboards and reports based on these resources. Not every company is a tech savant, but they do not have to be, thanks to easy-to-use solutions such as ReportPlus from Infragistics.
When we built SharePlus, we saw an opportunity in bridging one massively used server side technology such as Microsoft SharePoint, with a new family of technologies, such as the iPad and iPhone.
We saw a similar opportunity with Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, a platform that it’s among the most widely adopted business intelligence OLAP technologies in the corporate world. Our goal was simple, to allow anyone with an iPad to establish a connection to a SSAS cube without the need for any additional middleware, something we believe it’s key to enable true self service business intelligence (required, not sufficient).
Mason explained that she has helped many firms build SharePoint platforms. Replacing other systems can come with some issues if businesses do not launch a solution that meets the data demands of their users.
