Seattle, WA and Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Pivotstream LLC, provider of the world’s first enterprise-class hosted PowerPivot platform, and Mariner, a leading provider of data-driven solutions for decision support, PowerPivot workshops and solutions, and a Microsoft Gold Partner, today announced a major strategic partnership designed to bring secure and performant on-demand Microsoft-based BI to the SMB and Enterprise markets.
“The capabilities of our hosted platform have evolved dramatically over the past twelve months,” said Pivotstream CEO Jeff Elderton. “Just getting SharePoint and PowerPivot running well together in the cloud used to be a big deal, but we now support massive vertical solutions in pharmaceutical, retail, and consumer product goods (CPG) on a highly secure, compliant, and performant platform built on SQL 2012, Excel 2013, and SharePoint 2013. We offer hosted PowerPivot, tabular, and hosted SQL Server, and through this new partnership we add the capability to support Tableau and complex ETL processes. Additionally, our partnership with Mariner provides us with significantly enhanced training and solution delivery capabilities, consulting services, and sales and marketing reach.”
“Pivotstream is quickly becoming the go-to platform for working with PowerPivot in the enterprise by providing a customized and high performing cloud interface while unloading infrastructure complexity from already busy internal IT resources,” said Javier Guillen, Senior Business Intelligence Consultant and PowerPivot Evangelist. “With data centers in the United States and Europe, cutting-edge software, operational expertise, and a proven understanding of the requirements of corporate IT and business analysts, Pivotstream has built a platform that enables us to apply self-service BI best practices securely and efficiently, delighting customers with measurable business value very quickly.”
“Mariner is driven by a passion to deliver high quality, high value business intelligence solutions rapidly,” commented Philip W. Morris, CEO and co-founder of Mariner, “Our Pivotstream partnership contributes to our ‘need for speed’ by giving us nearly instantaneous availability of a secure cloud-based platform that will host any solution in Mariner’s portfolio – from analytic sandboxes to industry specific frameworks and customized solutions – at a price that’s extremely affordable for companies of all sizes,” he added.
