Infor has acquired Birst, a pioneer of cloud-native, business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data visualization. Birst is a unique, comprehensive platform for sourcing, refining, and presenting standardized data insights at scale to drive business decisions. The Birst business intelligence platform is a rich, simplified end-to-end BI suite in the cloud.

Manipulate data with ease.

Birst’s fully responsive and integrated HTML5 dashboards and visual discovery interfaces unifies traditional separate dashboard and discovery interfaces. Birst’s visual discovery and dashboards require no training or IT intervention and enable true self-service BI analytics across the enterprise.

Birst’s visual discovery interface offers the ability to intuitively explore data with consumer-friendly features like drag-and-drop and double-click, auto-complete search, guided visualizations, and visual filtering.

Birst’s Networked Analytics and BI platform is a new and disruptive approach to cloud business analytics.

Networked BI: data flows in both directions.

Networked BI virtualizes the entire analytics and data ecosystem, enabling the transformation of an organization’s approach to analytics. Built on top of Birst’s modern, multi-tenant cloud architecture, Birst creates a set of interwoven analytics and BI instances that share a common data-as-a-service fabric. This enables organizations to expand the use of BI across multiple regions, product lines, departments and customers in a more agile way, and empowers these decentralized teams to augment their enterprise data with their own local data.

Networked BI is different, allowing both top-down and bottom-up blending of data. The result is local execution with global governance, eliminating data silos once and for all and dramatically accelerating the delivery of BI across the enterprise.

Why Birst when most already own a BI tool?

This entire platform is designed to fit with the existing IT investments, including all of the diverse data, the different tools and platforms that may be in place.
