Birst Honored as Coolest Cloud Computing Vendor by CRN
San Francisco, CA, –
Birst, the global leader in Cloud BI and Analytics, today announced it has earned recognition as one of The Channel Company’s CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015. This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers. Birst’s cloud-based BI platform is recognized for its revolutionary 2-tier analytics approach that supports both the needs of business users and IT, while delivering ease of use, agility, and trusted analytics for multiple use cases.
This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.
Birst enables customers to make more intelligent business decisions by unifying, refining and embedding data into every decision across an organization. With its unique approach, customers can combine multiple sources, operationalize data and deliver faster insights so everyone across the organization can drive results.
“Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities.”
“We have always had a strong commitment to the Channel. Our customers and partners know that Birst delivers the most innovative and effective cloud-based BI platform for both internal use or as an embedded solution, so that our customers and partners can leverage their data assets and ultimately win in the marketplace,” said Jay Larson, CEO, Birst. “We’re thrilled that CRN recognized our commitment and hard work and selected Birst in the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors. This award further builds on the massive success we have created around driving the adoption of cloud BI.”
