Birst and Acumen Solutions Unite to Increase Customer Productivity and Profitability

San Francisco, CA, – 

Birst Inc., the leader in Cloud BI, and Acumen Solutions, a professional services firm and trusted leader in Enterprise Cloud Transformation, announced a partnership to deliver Cloud BI to enterprise organizations with a specific focus on leveraging Birst’s pre-built integrations with salesforce.com and other key applications for advanced analytics across multiple data sources, regardless of where data resides. As a Birst partner, Acumen Solutions will bring Birst enterprise-caliber business intelligence to customers in the Telco, Cable, Health and Pharmaceuticals, Financial Services, and Insurance industries, among others. It is within these industries where giving business meaning to data in order to solve real problems, has never been more important than it is today.

Acumen Solutions selected Birst to enable customers to easily combine and analyze data from multiple applications and data sources. Birst’s pre-built connectors enable easy integration with leading cloud-based applications, such as salesforce.com and NetSuite, allowing companies to get a comprehensive view of their business—across all departments—to make smarter, more informed business decisions. Typically one-third the cost, time and resources of traditional BI solutions, Birst’s easy to deploy Cloud BI application offers advanced analytics incorporating all of the components of an enterprise BI suite, including data integration and ETL services, analytics, dashboards, pixel perfect and ad hoc reports, and scheduling and delivery.

“Our partnership with Birst offers current and future clients a powerful cloud-based business intelligence tool that delivers significant business value for all users, providing access to meaningful data across the board. Whether providing advanced reporting for salesforce.com-specific data, or combining multiple sources of data into a cloud-based data warehouse, leveraging Big Data within an organization is now accessible and affordable with Birst as a partner,” said David Marko, Managing Director at Acumen Solutions.

“Often, companies are unaware of the valuable insights their data can provide because it is siloed in various applications and data stores across departments. Together, Birst and Acumen Solutions can bring users fast access to all their valuable data, regardless of where it is stored, allowing customers to experience the immediate benefits and impact of using analytics to make the ‘right’ decisions,” said Sharon Gordon, Vice President of Birst Alliances and Technology Partners.
