Birst, Inc. Key Developments

Birst Networked BI & Analytics Enable the Digital Supply Chain

Birst announced unique collaboration and real-time capabilities of its Networked BI & Analytics platform, which enable customers to create digital supply chains. With visibility and analytics up and down the supply chain, enterprises have achieved 99% on-time fulfillment while improving inventory turns. They also have maximized profits with reduced costs and improved planning. Birst Networked BI supports collaboration -- with internal business processes, as well as external customers and suppliers -- on transparently governed data. Real-time visibility lets decision makers proactively adjust to changes in supply and demand. Transparent governance means the impact of their decisions updates consistently across the ecosystem. Extranet and external data blending capabilities enable individual users from customers, suppliers, and employees to bring their own data into the network without polluting the centrally controlled plan. All parties can share forecasts, anticipate changes, and plan for scenarios. Birst automatically aggregates data from multiple sources, and refines and models it, so all the information can be seen in one place, no matter how complex the supply chain. With these insights, operations managers have visibility from raw material and sales forecasts, to logistics tracking and delivery, so they can adjust supply and shorten lead times without maintaining inventory buffer. Birst's Networked BI & Analytics platform creates an interwoven fabric of data, eliminating silos across purchasing and planning, to production and fulfillment.

Keyrus Announces New Partnership with Birst, Inc

Keyrus has signed a worldwide partnership with Birst, Inc., a provider of business intelligence tools. With this partnership, Keyrus's offering includes a solution enabling it to address all Business Intelligence needs, through a modern and open platform, in order to satisfy the expectations of enterprises wishing to modernize their BI platform. Birst makes data accessible to business users whilst allowing them all the autonomy they need to combine them and create their own analyses. It is all done within a centralized and secure platform that makes it possible to guarantee the veracity of data and control their dissemination. With a Cloud deployment (public or private) but also an on-premises virtual appliance, Birst makes it possible to significantly reduce the cost of ownership (TCO) of a BI solution having to meet the challenges of enterprise BI, tactical BI, and self-service BI. This solution also makes it possible to preserve those BI investments already undertaken, be they for the data warehouse, processes or reporting tools already in place. The first layer of infrastructure makes it possible to connect up to all on-premises data sources, be they Cloud- or application-based (files, relational database management system, Salesforce, LinkedIn, SAP Hana, Hadoop, web service), and to extract and organize data in an incremental and automated manner. Birst thus makes it possible to define a governed semantic layer grouping together all business rules and definitions and then share it in a secured manner. The second layer of presentation offers users a single interface covering all BI uses: reporting, data discovery, dash boarding, mobility.
