We’re seeing the new breed of agile cloud companies move away from trying to integrate these legacy business intelligence products and move toward more agile solutions like Indicee.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Cloud BI provider Indicee has launched their Powered by Indicee Partnership Program allowing other software companies and online services to use the Indicee Platform to deliver world-class reporting and analytics to their customers. The program has already been very popular with companies that deliver Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) as customers continue to demand better ways to analyze the data stored in cloud services.
“Software companies have traditionally relied on Enterprise Business Intelligence (BI) or Open Source BI solutions to provide reporting and analytics to their customers,” explains Indicee founder and CEO Mark Cunningham. “We’re seeing the new breed of agile cloud companies move away from trying to integrate these legacy business intelligence products and move toward more agile solutions like Indicee. In fact, we’re also seeing on-premise software companies do the same as their customers revolt against expensive, difficult to use Business Intelligence products.”
While other cloud BI providers have partner programs, they remain focused on direct customer acquisition and their products reflect this. In contrast, the Indicee BI platform was specifically designed for partners and their need for a comprehensive API to embed white-labelled reporting directly into their applications, automate data feeds and integrate customer on-boarding and secure user management with their own service.
Indicee’s Partnership Program stems directly from the experience of the Indicee founders when they were part of the team that helped build Crystal into the leading OEM reporting tool in the market. Drawing on this experience, Indicee understands that building a word-class business intelligence company requires not only a great product but a community of partner companies that know data and can deliver value to customers. Specific focus is placed on ensuring that partners get immediate value, can open up new revenue streams and can provide their customers a world-class reporting experience.
Indicee has already established successful partnerships in the cloud and SaaS space. Partner, Symmetrics, launched a cloud version of their on-premise contact center analytics product entirely on the Indicee Cloud BI platform.
“Delivering our cloud solution on top of Indicee’s platform allows us to target small and mid-sized contact centers that simply do not have the resources to manage our on-premise solution,” explains Symmetrics President and COO Richard McElroy. “Building on Indicee allowed us to focus on creating compelling BI content rather than re-inventing our BI architecture, so we got to market with a SaaS solution much faster than our competitors could.”
