Birst Inc., the leader in Cloud BI, and CorSource Technology Group, the leading provider of strategic consulting, software development services and technical staffing, today announced a partnership to enable software vendors to maximize their own Business Intelligence (BI) initiatives by creating roadmaps that not only enable better reporting and analysis, but also leverage their data into new revenue streams and to facilitate improved integration with other systems. The partnership between Birst and CorSource enables ISVs to save development costs by embedding Birst’s enterprise-caliber BI solution into their product, enabling them to roll out new capabilities in a matter of weeks rather than many months.

CorSource’s team of veteran BI consultants work with customers to harness the power of their data to enable better decision making in real time by integrating the all-encompassing Birst platform with a fully integrated ETL, data warehousing, OLAP and interactive dashboard.

“CorSource has developed a proven roadmap process that cuts down the time it takes companies to get actionable intelligence from their data. We are thrilled to be partnering with Birst to utilize its superior Cloud BI solution so that any organization can easily use its own data to drive growth and business success,” said Eileen Boerger, CEO, CorSource.
