Business Analyzer on Windows Phone | Microsoft Dynamics
Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Redmond, Washington, United States that develops, manufactures, licenses and supports a wide range of products and services related to computing. The company was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Microsoft is the world's largest software maker measured by revenues. It is also one of the world's most valuable companies.
Microsoft is market dominant in both the PC operating system and office suite markets (Microsoft Office). The company also produces a wide range of other software for desktops and servers, and is active in areas including internet search (with Bing), the video game industry (with the Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles), the digital services market (through MSN), and mobile phones (via the Windows Phone OS). In June 2012, Microsoft announced that it would be entering the PC vendor market for the first time, with the launch of the Microsoft Surface tablet computer.
Develop and expand on the Business Analyzer solution for the Windows 8 Phone and Microsoft Surface environments. Many Microsoft customers, especially those who often travel, are interested in the ability to access more information at their fingertips. This project aims to satisfy these customers' needs by allowing them to quickly view business charts/reports on mobile phones and tablet devices. This Windows Phone 8/Windows RT application will allow businesses to deliver information to employees to make sound business decisions. As a part of this project we also want to expand the Business Analyzer to work with the Xbox Kinect device. This device would allow users to "login" to Business Analyzer and navigate through the app with gestures and spoken commands.
The initial design of the Business Analyzer application has been done. The UNL team will be responsible for adding additional functionality into the project that will be needed to allow the Windows Phone application to communicate with the Report Server location whether that would be in native mode or SharePoint integrated. The Kinect functionality will be a new design as there is no current functionality incorporated into the application. Within the scope there will be requirements that will need to be written, coding done to meet the requirements and then testing to make sure that the development meets the requirements.
The Business Analyzer Application will use current functionality and technologies which includes but is not limited to:
- XAML with C#
- Silverlight 5.0
- Visual Studio 2012
- SQL Server Reporting Services
- Lync MX
- Kinect for Windows
