Pioneer in true cloud BI recognized as one of the new players pushing the envelope in sophisticated business computing.


BIME Analytics, the pioneer in true cloud business intelligence (BI), today announced that Gartner, Inc. named BIME Analytics as one of five ‘Cool Vendors’ in the Gartner Cool Vendors in PaaS report by Yefim V. Natis, Joao Tapadinhas and others, published April 28, 2014.

Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports highlighting the products and services that have the potential to exploit digitalization and radically alter competitive dynamics across many industries.

"We are honored to be recognized as one of Gartner's Cool Vendors in PaaS," says Rachel Delacour, CEO and co-founder of BIME Analytics. "BIME has from the start been about delivering a new way to do business analytics for everyone. Modern BI allows businesses of any size to leave old and expensive infrastructure behind and turn the entire cloud into a data warehouse. BIME is a platform as a service (PaaS) for business analytics for everyone. We see our inclusion in this report as validation that we are steadfast in our commitment to helping any business make sense of their data and mine their own business.”

According to the report, "PaaS is a fast-growing market that attracts both the major enterprise software vendors, and new startups. The new players bring to market new ideas, new methods, new technologies and new visions for what's possible in digital business computing.”

BIME leverages the full stack of the latest cloud and analytics technologies to deliver a unique combination of all the tools a business needs to run full-scale BI, but without an in-house infrastructure. The mix includes a simple but powerful query model on top of more than 35 on-premise and online connectors to a wide variety of data sources, including video, as well as a tight integration with Google BigQuery. BIME offers a flexible calculation engine, on-demand data warehousing, data blending on the fly, as well as highly customizable visualizations and animated and interactive graphs that can be automatically published to large, multi-device audiences. It all comes in an elegant and intuitive UI that business users can easily master without the need of an IT department.

The self-service capabilities also make BIME a viable contender for purchase processes where the key requirements are driven by business users' autonomy.
