Prior to becoming a Birst partner, DiamondStream implemented the Birst platform for its own internal BI requirements, providing the company with expert working knowledge of the system. Moreover, DiamondStream collaborated with Birst to embed Birst’s BI application into its marketing analytics solution to provide casinos with the information and analysis they need to improve marketing results. As such, their team of consultants has a deeper understanding of the challenges that businesses face while leveraging the wealth of information their data provides, as well as how to overcome those challenges with thoughtful analytics and BI solutions.
