  • Birst's software comes in two versions so that companies can choose a software based on their needs.

    Pros: Big data capability, works with existing systems (i.e. Salesforce or SAP), data analytic solutions available for specific business users (i.e. Marketing, HR).

    Cons: Reporting limited to basic ad-hoc reports, English is only available language for support, does not support iOS (as Birst is an Adobe Flash-based solution).

    Pros :

    Cons :

  • Birst is a cloud based BI platform that caters for self-service and production needs. The underlying data architecture is excellent, and places Birst ahead of the pack in this respect. It is one of only a few true enterprise BI platforms available as a cloud deployment (public or private).

    Pros :

    Cons :

  • Birst Use Cases and Deployment ScopeBirst was selected as our single business intelligence solution solving our "single source of truth" challenge moving away from spreadmarts and individual definitions of the truth. We started our Birst development as support for individual functional departments [Sales Analytics, Team [HR], Finance and Service/Warranty]. The current year objective is to pull together the integrated organizational view across functional areas.

    Pros : Single solution, integrated end to end [ETL, database, Administration, Design, Dashboards presentation].Very stable application - uptime is great, software upgrades seamless.Administration Tools: users, groups, security, customization very intuitive.Quick start.Pace of introduction of new features.Community sharing portal is an excellent resource of Knowledge Base documentation, and discussions of challenges/resolutions by other customers.Community is also used to submit ideas and enhancement r

    Cons : Ability to find things in Think Tank Community, need a better way to keep similar topics grouped, inconsistent tags.Community: assumption that this is the first place for answers to issues; which causes time extension for resolution of business challenge.Training: need some freebee's like single topic Lunch & Learn webinars
