REDMOND, WA — 15 October 2013 — Forerunner Software launches Forerunner Mobilizer, an optimized, responsive mobile application built to extend the power of Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services. Designed to unlock SQL Server across all communication devices and browsers, Mobilizer allows users access to core business intelligence anywhere. Corporate mobility is a reality, and maintaining security and protection is paramount as the workspace extends outside of an office. Announced at PASS Summit 2013, Forerunner Mobilizer is an out of the box solution that supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012. Forerunner Mobilizer is built for IT and development professionals and provides a mobile solution while preserving how users work with critical business intelligence.
"The core application we provide to clients is an out of the box mobile solution that allows IT and development professionals to support the incredible power of SQL Server and provide users access to critical data anywhere. Corporate mobility must balance maintaining administrative control and costs," said Jason Carlson, Founder of Forerunner Software. "Having spent 15 years at Microsoft building SQL Server Reporting Services, I understand the administrative time and money invested in SQL Server. We built Mobilizer to unleash that power anywhere your team goes."
Forerunner Mobilizer is built for the business user. Focusing on usability and natural gestures, Mobilizer’s modern UI is simple to use while maintaining the power and flexibility of SQL Server. Mobilizer makes complex tasks easy. With just a couple of clicks, users can save their favorite reports, set their own personal defaults for parameters, subscribe to reports, and much more. With the responsive UI, data is easy to read and actionable on any device.
“SQL Server Reporting Services is a highly scalable solution that empowers customers to make real-time decisions based on their business data,” said Luis Daniel Soto Maldonado, Director, Product Marketing SQL Server, Microsoft. “We are excited to work with Forerunner to provide our joint customers the ability to access their corporate data from any device.”
Forerunner Mobilizer is designed for IT and development professionals to quickly integrate a complete mobile solution with existing security policies and infrastructure. Mobilizer supports all standard authentication modes including: Basic, forms, Windows NTLM, and Kerberos. Easy to integrate into modern applications with a fluid responsive layout, Mobilizer adapts business intelligence content to all form factors. Forerunner Mobilizer natively plugs into HTML5 and MVC applications using industry standard interfaces REST and jQuery. Forerunner Mobilizer is completely customizable via code and/or simple CSS changes.
A key benefit of Forerunner Mobilizer is its user-centric design. Mobilizer dynamically displays data across the browser and device of choice. It is browser agnostic (IE8+, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) and is a fully localized, multi-language UI. Mobilizer supports all devices: IOS, Android and Windows mobile.
