Cloud-based Business Intelligence (BI) is the future. And one of the first BI vendors to capitalise on this trend is Birst - "the only enterprise BI platform in the cloud." This article will provide you with a case study of how Build.com drives their business forward with Birst’s cloud BI system.
Infor is a leading provider of business application software with more than 73,000 customers, recognised for providing specific functionality to the hospitality industry, speeding up deployment through built-in reports, graphs and key performance indicators (KPIs). At HITEC 2015, this business application giant announced the great effort and plans for its hospitality division.
In particular, Infor d/EPM for Hospitality is designed with the advanced functionality to help implement and facilitate analysis. Another great feature is Office Plus which integrates directly with Microsoft Excel.
The world of technologies recently is buzzing with a new terminology: “networked analytics”, which was marketed as the technology behind cloud-based Business Intelligence solution from Birst (recently acquired by Infor). Such breakthrough is expected to help businesses to manipulate data much better than what we are currently doing.
Earlier this year, Gartner published their 2018 Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms mentioning the trend of upgrading traditional solutions as well as expanding portfolios with new vendors as the market innovates on ease of use and augmented analytics.
CheapCaribbean used to heavily rely on Excel for data analysis, which was very time-consuming and not effective at realising the value of their data. In order to become a truly data-driven organisation, CheapCaribbean has adopted Birst, a leading cloud Business Intelligence solution provider. Its breadth of functionalities meets all of the company’s analytics needs while the modern networked analytics architecture is a perfect match with CheapCaribbean’s vision of taking the business to the next level. See what Jason Seiple, the Director of Data Analytics at CheapCaribbean, has to say about Birst in the following video.
