One day while trying to make sense of data from sheets sprawled all around him and his team, Pankaj Tibrewal, then chief operating officer of Pantaloon in Mumbai, finally gave in to an idea he has been considering for a while — Business intelligence data doesn’t have to be necessarily tedious to review, share and discuss.

Last week, Tibrewal and a number of former executives from Evernote, Prezi and eBay launched Chartcube, a free iPad App that makes sharing, discussing and reviewing business data easy, and fun.

“The idea was born when I started working at McKinsey and saw that most companies spend millions in business intelligence tools but still consume data in Excel sheets and PowerPoint presentations,” Tibrewal said, adding, “I realised that users need a lot more flexibility.”
