"BBBT offers a truly unique forum to share expert knowledge of business intelligence and analytics." Brad Peters, CEO, Birst
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) July 02, 2013
Business Intelligence (BI) delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS) or more commonly referred to now as Cloud BI has been touted as the next big thing for close to a decade. At times, however, this seemed to be more hype than reality as security and other concerns restrained organizations from adopting BI in the Cloud. Today, Cloud benefits outweigh those concerns and a new wave of vendors is delivering their solutions as a service.
Birst, an early pioneer, has sought from the outset to deliver a full BI stack yet with the agility and ease of deployment common to data discovery. Its enterprise-caliber born in the cloud approach is winning adherents as more and more organizations rely on a platform that can be deployed in weeks, enterprise data sources added in a day, and a dashboard developed in minutes – all while being maintained by a business user.
Global organizations like Samsung, Citrix, and Kellogg’s and rapidly growing ones like Jive, GoPro, and OpenText are using Birst to think faster than their competition.
According to Brad Peters, CEO, "It’s an honor to be invited back to BBBT and share Birst’s Cloud BI directions and our continued growth. My participation is as much about sharing Birst’s latest capabilities and what our customers are doing with our platform as it is a forum for Birst to better understand industry trends and directions from a community of experts who’ve got their pulse on the market."
Mr. Peters summarized his presentation in a podcast hosted by BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff.
