"In the new era of BI, a single platform must satisfy the different needs of many kinds of business users," said Birst CEO
A Price to Pay?
Traditional BI solutions, while excellent at providing deep, accurate answers, are too dependent on analytic experts and require too much time and resources to get to meaningful insights. On the other hand, recent data discovery solutions have lured users with their speed of deployment and rich visualizations, but have offered incomplete insights and limited scalability. These desktop data visualization tools, while fast, work only with single or limited data sets and lack data management capabilities, causing users to have access to limited data and arrive at different answers to the same business question.
Companies have been left with a trade-off between accuracy and speed -- and no way to put analytic insights at the fingertips of everyone in the enterprise. By combining self-service to enterprise data and unique analytic capabilities for different audiences, Birst has exposed this trade-off as false.
"Companies are embracing discovery as the new form for quickly gaining valuable insights from within data. This new, highly-iterative approach requires both a visual-driven experience combined with the ease of data mashing through abstraction that is intuitive for the business user," said
A Complete Solution for Every User
