Organizations have an opportunity to derive greater business benefits from their business intelligence (BI) and analytics solutions, and keep up with the changing demands for cloud-based enterprise solutions. The BI market has shifted to more user-driven, agile production of visual, interactive dashboards with information from a wider range of sources.

In the 2017 Gartner Critical Capabilities report, they recommend that data and analytics leaders expand BI and analytics tools beyond IT-centric, reporting-oriented platforms.

Birst’s enterprise-caliber Cloud BI solution is the most agile and cost-effective way for businesses to become data-driven and empower the entire organization with fast and accurate insights. Birst offers data integration and ETL services, analytics, dashboards, visual discovery, report scheduling and delivery.

Case Study Scenario: Vital, a Toshiba Medical Systems Company, is a leading provider of medical imaging and visualization software for clinicians. Given the complexity of its product line,“We clearly needed a BI solution that could easily combine and analyze data maintained in different applications, creating a single, comprehensive source of the truth,” said Ben Slater, Sr. Manager of Enterprise Applications.

Vital selected Birst, the only solution to deliver a complete cloud BI stack with data refinement, analytic data store, and advanced data visualization in one platform. In fact, Vital was able to deploy Birst as its enterprise data warehouse and BI stack in eight weeks without a BI developer.

Business benefits Vital experienced using the Birst BI system:

  • Sales Performance – Compared sales forecasts with actual and budgeted goals along with weekly snapshots; able to recommend products for more up-sell and cross-sell to drive increased revenue.
