If you’re working with SAS Mobile BI offline, all the necessary data from SAS Visual Analytics will be downloaded to your device automatically. Once you choose the appropriate values for the filters at design time, the app downloads all data to your device.

For good performance on hierarchical data, keep in mind that you need to maximize the amount of data to the device. To do this, drill to the level of interest. This will allow the mobile app to fetch current and some additional levels of data for drill up and drill down. The number of levels that the mobile app can fetch for offline operation can be configured.


Here’s an example:
