One of the great features of the Oracle BI Cloud Service (BICS) is the included mobile functionality. Oracle has recently updated the iPhone and Android Oracle BI Mobile apps to support Visual Analyzer, a data discovery and visualization tool included in the Oracle BI Cloud Service (BICS).
Visual Analyzer is a powerful, yet easy to use data discovery tool that supports enhanced visualization and combines it with data mashup capabilities. For a 3 minute introduction, see Oracle’s Getting Started with Visual Analyzer video.

As you can see, Visual Analyzer is an easy to use tool that is Mobile ready.
