Birst Expands European Partnership Programme With More Than 30 Partners

Development of Partner Network Supports Demand for Networked BI Across Europe

San Francisco, CA, – 

Birst, the global leader in Cloud BI and Analytics for the Enterprise, today announced that the company is expanding its partner network in Europe, adding a range of new organisations that are trusted advisors to some of the largest enterprises in the world.

These partners have signed with Birst to deliver BI and analytics platforms to their customers. They see Birst Networked BI as a key part of meeting customer requirements – as those organisations look to unify data and analytical silos in a shared “data fabric” that is accessible by multiple users.

Across Europe, Birst now has more than 30 enterprise partners covering customer requirements in 17 countries. They are part of Birst’s global partner ecosystem of more than 100 partners.

Birst provides companies with a complete, multi-tenant cloud-based Business Intelligence platform, enabling organisations to expand the availability and use of analytics across multiple departments and geographies without losing centralised governance and trust over data sources. Birst’s Networked BI platform creates a network of interwoven BI instances that share a common analytical fabric. This approach eliminates data silos to ensure collaboration across organisations, accelerating the delivery of BI and reducing costs.

“Many companies see analytics as essential to their business strategies and growth potential. Yet, traditional BI products are difficult to upgrade and expensive to run, while newer data discovery products can’t maintain consistency over data so that everyone is looking at the same information and analytics results,” said David Gray, Vice President, EMEA, Birst. “Networked BI fills the gap by providing global governance and trust over data, while delivering local speed and agility. This expands the availability of analytics to users throughout the organisation. We are working with our partners across Europe to deliver Birst Networked BI solutions to enterprises so that they can use data to streamline operations, gain competitive advantage and drive business results.”

Birst’s partner programme in Europe now extends to cover countries, including Norway, Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Israel, Portugal and Spain, on top of existing relationships with companies in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, and the United Kingdom. In 2016, Birst will continue its recruitment drive for partners in the region based on market demand.
