Business Intelligence (BI) was once the domain of IT geeks and programmers. Now with FileMaker even non-programmers can build dashboards for phones, tablets, web browsers, and PCs. With FileMaker, you cannot only connect to multiple sources you can also build mini-apps to “fill gaps” in your information such as collecting targets for KPIs. In the relationships graph in FileMaker Pro, you can see exactly how information is connected and more importantly, you can include collaborative tools in your solution. Collaborative BI accessed via mobile devices will play a significant role in the future, and FileMaker developers are well placed to embrace this.
