"we can calculate an anticipation quotient by dividing the number of possible outcomes by the number of decision variables that will affect the outcomes. We have no control over the number of possible outcomes, but we can limit the decision variables. The smaller the number of data points that are allowed into the decision equation, the higher the anticipation quotient becomes. The higher anticipation quotient, the better the chances leaders will be able to anticipate and make the right decision."

Sounds wonderfully scientific. But, unfortunately, in my view, there is very little basis for the last sentence. For example, removing relevant and irrelevant data have exactly the same effect on the anticipation quotient. And the relationship between data volumes and right decisions is certainly far more complex than the "less is more" argument made here or the "more is more" mantra of the big data folks.

Customers are quite used to BI on web from their laptops.And they expect everything on Mobile as is. That is big challenge keeping mobile's limited resources & form factor in mind. It is very much important to understand for teams adapting Mobile BI to understand what are important KPI's that they would like to monitor and create appropriate reports rather than expecting everything as is in Mobile. Instead think of leveraging the Mobile location,collaboration features to improve the experience of decision making
