Abstract

One of the most famous generals of World War II was George Patton, and the above quote is attributed to him. The statement reflects what Patton was best known for: taking action with the best possible information, instead of excessively analyzing situations. Patton was ardently opposed to digging in or establishing fixed fortifications, and he demanded of his troop’s constant forward movement. Given Patton’s core values, he would certainly feel right at home with the mobile computing capabilities that are available to today’s professionals through smartphones and tablet computers. Mobile devices allow these professionals to be productive away from their offices, as these devices no longer need to be tethered to a desk to be useful. In this chapter, we examine a moderate-size cycle company, the Ottawa County Bike Company, and how the Salesforce Analytics Cloud enables that company’s personnel to use its existing decision support system data with their mobile devices to achieve greater insight into the company sales performance.
