"These new Oracle Business Intelligence product releases build upon the success of Oracle BI 11g and provide customers a wide range of new capabilities that extend intelligence to the iPad and iPhone, offer more powerful visualisation, interactivity, performance and scalability features to their ERP and CRM applications, and optimise customer interactions and decisions in real-time," said Paul Rodwick, vice president of product management for Oracle's BI division.

Oracle has also launched a new application within Real-Time Decisions Release 3.1 named Decision Manager. It is designed to assist operational decision-making in customer-facing scenarios.

Amongst other features, the app lets administrators search and manage catalogues of campaigns, offers and products. Users can also take advantage of data analysis functionality to make better-informed decisions.
