Birst for Big Data
The New Approach to Big Data Analytics
Hadoop, MongoDB and other data lakes provide great data storage and processing power. However they choke when it comes to interactive business analytics. The same architecture that makes them a great platform for storing massive unstructured data renders them inadequate for analytical workloads and multiple concurrent users. Birst’s BI platform takes a new approach to big data analytics.
Analyze Big Data
at Business Speed
Big Data engines are too slow for analytic scenarios. Birst automatically refines raw data into an analytic-ready format.
Interact with Data
in Business Terms
Business users think in business terms, not joins and queries. Birst BI transforms complex big data into simple self-service.
Scale to Lots
of Concurrent Users
Birst’s caching and aggregate awareness offers the best query execution path for high concurrent user scenarios.
Vertafore, the leading provider of insurance software and technology, connects independent brokers with carriers at every point of the distribution channel. Their unique footprint in the industry provides them with data from 20,000+ agencies, 1,600 carriers, and 230+ million policies. The goal was to leverage all this data into an analytics product that would scale to thousands of clients. With Birst, Vertafore Analytics easily delivers big data into the hands of insurance carriers and independent agencies; allowing them unprecedented control.
Spireon, a Fitbit for Cars, is the largest independent telematics provider in the world with over 3 million connected vehicles. They required a BI platform that could separate operational workloads (device signals captured in MongoDB) from analytic workloads. Today with Spireon’s new analytics product, logistic companies can optimize their transportation paths and insurance providers can underwrite premiums based on usage.
CBS Interactive, the largest content syndicator in the world, needed an enterprise-scale analytic platform that could analyze ad performance for 10 million products from 12,000 suppliers. While Hadoop provided an economical way of storing large amounts of digital data, CBSi required a business intelligence solution that could go from test environments to production in minutes. With Birst, CBSi is now serving its customers with a single platform and providing massive customer facing analytics with unprecedented results.
