Pyramid Analytics, the next generation business intelligence platform for the enterprise, today announced impressive growth driven by accelerated customer acquisition in the past year and a doubling of the company’s global workforce, including the hiring of Micha Ben Chorin as chief financial officer. This momentum culminates in advanced placement in the recently released 2015 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics. The acknowledgement adds to Pyramid Analytics recognition as a leader in the BARC BI Survey 2014. Pyramid Analytics has been tripling its customer base yearly in the last three years. The company now has hundreds of thousands of users in large public, private and Fortune 500 enterprises, including banks, insurance and healthcare multi-nationals. Organizations like the US Department of Veteran Affairs, Victorinox Swiss Army, Voith, and Siemens, rely on Pyramid Analytics’ self-service advanced business intelligence technology for easy access to analytics, reporting and dashboards.
“The market is rapidly evolving from departmental BI to more mature, cross-departmental BI for the enterprise. This is where Pyramid Analytics has built its expertise from the beginning,” said Omri Kohl, co-founder and CEO of Pyramid Analytics. “The responses from our customers gave us a ‘big mover’ advantage in the Garter MQ, validating that our governed data discovery platform offers all users the necessary assurance that the data they are working with provides everyone with the same version of the truth.”
Pyramid Analytics Moves Within Magic Quadrant
This year, Pyramid Analytics has been placed further along both axes in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence & Analytics Platforms. The advancement is attributed to the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute. Conventional BI and analytics vendors still lack necessary enterprise features in relation to governance, security, administration and scalability that Pyramid Analytics is known for. In fact, Pyramid Analytics’ customers told Gartner that the technology requires less time to develop simple, moderate or even complex reports and dashboards than any vendor in the Magic Quadrant.
Key Strategic Hires
Propelled by momentum in the market, Pyramid Analytics has been successful in attracting key talent and rapidly growing its global workforce. Over the past 18 months, the company has doubled its workforce, including the most recent addition of key executive Micha Ben Chorin as chief financial officer.
Micha Ben Chorin has 20 years of experience in various global finance positions, managing finance and legal teams in various multinational corporations. He has driven mega global financial transactions and commercial negotiations in global and US markets, also in addition to leading M&A and IPO preparations.
