A new approach to business intelligence and analytics
Birst brings the benefits of fact-based decision making to a much broader audience than ever before by providing enterprise-class analysis and reporting that is quick to deploy, easy to use, and affordable. Founded in 2005 by Business Intelligence experts, we witnessed firsthand the power of enterprise-wide BI platforms, but were dismayed to see how the fragmented offerings, complexity, and high costs inhibited widespread adoption.
With the rise of powerful Cloud-based technologies, we recognized we could build a robust, multi-tenant BI platform that would unify the traditionally siloed BI technologies, automate critical data management tasks, and greatly reduce complexity—speeding deployments and reducing overall costs. We wanted to deliver real BI—more than a simple charting engine for one or two data sources and one that did not assume that IT had already built a data infrastructure ready for analysis. It would address a business’ entire analytics needs across all data sources, transforming raw data to analysis-ready information. It would empower business users to make meaningful business decisions without the constant involvement of IT.
We call our approach Agile Business Analytics—a single place to manage all of your organization’s analytics along with the agility to answer questions that span departments, data sources, and deployments. Today Birst gives users the fastest way to answer their most pressing business questions, and, the ones they didn’t know to ask.
Headquartered in San Francisco, California with offices in India, Birst is among the fastest growing business-to-business software providers. Selling directly to businesses as well as other software vendors who seek to embed analytics into their applications, more than 1,000 organizations currently rely upon Birst for their business analytics needs.
