In today’s digital age, mobile devices have become a de facto tool for business, not only performing as communication devices, but as enablers of business activities. In this space, the mobile workforce needs efficient ways to interact with the overload of information delivered to it. In most cases, key data is delivered in the form of PDF or spreadsheet attachments that make consumption on mobile devices cumbersome. To solve the problem, SAP BusinessObjects Roambi, a data visualization and publishing platform, was designed for mobile devices from the ground up with the end user in mind. The visualizations are designed to use the mobile device screen size effectively and enable the user to interact with the reports with engaging functionality and gestures commonly used in other mobile apps.

Discounted cash flow method means that we can find firm value by discounting future cash flows of a firm. That is, firm value is present value of cash flows a firm generates in the future. In order to understand the meaning of present value, we are going to discuss time value of money, first. That is, the value of $100 today is different from the value of $100 a year later. Then, what should be the present value of $100 that you are going to receive in 1 year? How about the value of $100 dollars that you are going to receive every year for next 10 years? How about forever? After taking this course, you are going to be able to find the present value of these types of cash flows in the future.
