Decibel Insight provides a very detailed picture of your Web analytics. The app offers a remarkable “heatmap” of where your site visitor’s attention aims. With Decibel Insight, you can find out not only what pages work well for you customers, but also what specific content and images draw their attention. Now, that’s insightful!
While many applications only offer free capabilities for a limited period of time, Decibel offers a behavioral analytics plan at $0 per month and no time limit. Through this you have access to the basic ‘heatmaps’ and up to 5000 page views per month.

Zoho Reports is as solid as anything else put out by Zoho. Zoho is very simple, allowing even those businesses that operate without an IT department to generate and share a wide range of reports. Zoho Reports adds clear visualizations to the mix, as well as a variety of collaboration features, making it one of the most powerful business intelligence apps for iPhone.
While Zoho’s web-based counterpart offers a boring spreadsheet-like layout, the iPhone application, on the other hand, is incredibly aesthetically pleasing. This is accompanied by a wide range of customization options allowing you view data in a number of different ways. In addition to this, reports can be shared instantly with colleagues and clients to make sure you’re always connected.

Sisense is a particularly simple, insightful Big Data analysis tool. Great visualizations bring even global data to the fore, allowing you to relate and interpret customer behaviors and interactions with considerable ease.

BIME effectively turns the Web into what the company describes as “a data warehouse” for your company. With BIME, it’s easy to query data on demand. With BIME, the software itself gets out of the way of the data and what you’d like to do with it.
Through the BIME application users can create their own reports, a feature many other business intelligence applications lack. These can be created through gathering data from Excel, Google Analytics and other databases.
Pricing: From $490 per month.
Klipfolio offers a platform for creating and sharing real-time business dashboards. The software’s unique visualization environment allows users to create custom visualizations from different data mashups. For instance, a user could create a chart that integrates data pulled in from Google Analytics, Salesforce, and SQL databases to generate unique insights.
Klipfolio is definitely a powerful web-based business intelligence tool. However, Klipfolio has only just made the transition over to the iPhone meaning its application is simple and deals with only the basics, though this is not necessarily a bad thing. Through the application dashboards can be viewed and resized, but must still be created on the web-based version.
Pricing: From $24 per month
