Our story

When it comes to BI and Analytics, we have a different point of view.

Birst brings the benefits of fact-based decision making to a much broader audience than ever before. 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.

The advent of the Cloud opened up new possibilities for BI to drive better business execution. 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.

Our secret lies in our patented Cloud two-tier data architecture that sits on top all of your data. Birst creates a user data tier that plugs into existing data warehouses, data lakes or applications, automating the process of refining the data and creating a single view for all your business users. We add a complete BI layer that uniquely meets each individual business user’s analytics needs by providing an intuitive set of front-end tools that include reports, dashboards, mobile, and visual discovery.

At Birst we’re giving business meaning to data – by enabling business users to analyze all of their data, from all types of sources, to solve real problems. Fast. Our patented 2-tier data architecture and comprehensive BI platform sits on top of all of your data, to unify, refine and embed data into every individual decision.

Headquartered in San Francisco, California with offices in Europe, Middle East and Asia, Birst is among the fastest growing business-to-business software providers. Selling to businesses as well as other software vendors who seek to embed analytics into their applications, we help thousands of the most demanding businesses to make metric-driven business execution a reality.
