Roambi Brings Data Visualization App To The iPad

We’ve written about Roambi’s nifty iPhone apps and web platform that allows for data in spreadsheets and documents to be easily viewed on the iPhone in customizable charts and graphs. Today, Roambi’s developer, MeLLmo, is bringing its mobile application to the iPad, that helps transform business reports and data into interactive dashboards.

With Roambi’s new app, companies can turn their business data – from Excel spreadsheets, Google Docs, and premium reporting services like SAP BusinessObjects and Salesforce CRM – into interactive dashboards on their iPad, allowing users to transform complex analytics into easy to understand graphs, charts and images. Ater the data is downloaded, you can select a pre-designed template to deliver the data (i.e. pie chart, graphs etc.). Once published, the data transforms into interactive visualizations for the iPad.

With the iPad app, Roambi Trends will allow users to identify and visualize trends in their data. The Trends View offers data comparisons across whatever period a user chooses – years, months, even minutes; users can easily focus on specific time periods by sliding the dateline at the bottom of the graph. CataList view organizes data into hierarchical, categorized lists with the ability to drill down to into detailed summaries, as well as simultaneously compare or analyze different sets of data.

For enterprise users, Roambi offers both a Pro version, which is a secure, hosted service that connects mobile; and Roambi ES , a secure, on-premise server solution. As we’ve written in the past, the view of the data within Roambi’s app is impressive and is even more compelling on the iPad. Data-filled spreadsheets are automatically turned into interactive graphs and charts which allow you to easily understand the information that’s being delivered. Within graphs, you can also delve deeper into certain data points by simply touching the screen. And the app itself intuitively stores various charts according to subject matter and category, making it easy to access various visualizations quickly and efficiently. For any enterprise user of an iPad, this app is a winner.
