San Francisco, CA and Birmingham, AL,
March 18, 2013 -

Birst Inc., the leading provider of agile business analytics and Serviam, a business intelligence consulting firm, today announced they are partnering to help organizations make informed decisions through business discovery using Birst’s fully integrated, SaaS-based Business Intelligence platform available in the Cloud or on-premise. The solution will deliver rapid business discovery for businesses that have mountains of data trapped in complex transactional systems, spreadsheets, departmental silos and data warehouses.

“Data discovery does not have to be complex. As a solution provider with more than 20 years of data management and data analysis experience, we focus on the challenge at hand—making data available to the business user—and less on the software infrastructure. We are pleased to offer Birst’s Cloud-based solution to our customers,” said Wade Manis, Managing Partner at Serviam.

Birst is breaking down the barriers to successful BI by delivering a fully integrated, enterprise-caliber platform that can be deployed in the Cloud or on premise at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional, on premise BI solutions. Birst provides affordable, easy-to-deploy, advanced analytics incorporating all components of an enterprise BI suite including: data integration and ETL services; analytics; dashboards; pixel perfect and ad hoc reports; as well as scheduling and delivery. Together, Serviam and Birst will help businesses answer their most pressing business questions without the hassle of infrastructure and software management.

“With Serviam’s experience in data management accompanied by Birst’s Cloud-based platform, this partnership was a natural fit,” said Sharon Gordon, Vice President of Birst Alliances and Technology Partners. “We want to make life easier for all of our customers by allowing the seamless analysis of complex data. This partnership not only makes that vision a possibility—it makes it a reality.”
