CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) -  Saama Technologies, Inc., a pure-play business intelligence (BI) solution provider, and MeLLmo, Inc., provider of innovative mobile BI apps including Roambi, today announced a system integrator partnership that will allow mobile workers from the world's leading organizations to more easily -- and usefully -- access data residing in business intelligence solutions from their iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices, providing for more agile decision making. Saama will demonstrate its new end-to-end mobile BI solution, Saama mBI™, at the ASUG BusinessObjects User Conference, on Oct 4-7 in Orlando, Florida, where it is an event sponsor.

According to Murali Pabbisetty, head of Saama's mobile business intelligence practice group, mobile workers have the same information needs as office staff, but retrieving this critical information, in a format that is usable, has been a significant challenge for enterprise organizations, one that is made more complicated by the proliferation of devices of varying shapes, sizes and technical characteristics.

"Our offering, which includes proprietary automation software and an innovative data visualization methodology, partnered with the Roambi solution -- which is well known to be the leading system for extending critical business reports and data out to mobile devices via dashboards -- helps enterprises overcome these challenges and realize a level of proactive decision making previously unavailable," said Pabbisetty. "Together, we can provide a combination of mobile business intelligence experience, skills and software that is unique in the industry and a tremendous asset to our customers."

"Saama has implemented business intelligence solutions for many of the world's largest organizations and will be an excellent system integrator partner, given the firm's dedicated Mobile BI Practice," said Santiago Becerra, MeLLmo co-founder and CEO. "There's more to a mobile BI implementation than shrinking reports to fit a mobile device. Enterprises need to understand how the data is going to be used and how that is impacted by a device's size, shape, orientation, speed, resolution and network. They also need to understand that they have new options, like Roambi, for visualizing their critical data in ways never before available. Having worked through the process many times before, MeLLmo and Saama have a unique appreciation for these issues, and we've mastered the art of helping organizations achieve maximum value from their mobile business intelligence implementations."

Saama will demonstrate its new end-to-end BI solution, Saama mBI, from its booth -- #208 -- at the ASUG BusinessObjects User Conference October 4-7, 2010 in Orlando, Fl.
