This quick time to market reduces the costs of building and deploying reports, dashboards, and ad hoc analysis. It gives users fast access to valuable data, allowing organizations to experience the immediate benefits and impact of using analytics to make the ‘right’ decisions. When compared to legacy big BI applications, Birst is typically one-third the cost, time and resources.

Freek Kamst, Director Business Consultancy (E.Novation) recently confirmed that “Birst is an excellent platform to reduce the increasing costs of BI. The time-to-value of its reporting and analytics gives Birst a big advantage over the traditional BI vendors. We’ve already a great deal of interest from a variety customers ranging from local government, e-commerce, healthcare and food industries.”

Birst is able to easily combine and analyze data from multiple applications and data sources, including CRM and ERP solutions such as Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle EBS and SAP. Birst supports scheduled data extraction from all major relational database management systems (RDBMS) and its pre-built connectors enable easy integration with popular cloud-based applications like Salesforce.com, Google Analytics and NetSuite. Personal data in the form of csv, xls, MS Access and text files can also be incorporated. Additionally, Birst can be deployed ‘in the cloud’ or as an on-premise, virtual appliance.
