We partnered with Birst for a very simple reason. We wanted to provide SMEs with the best Cloud BI available. Cloud BI is uniquely suited to enable SMEs to take advantage of top-tier Business Intelligence capabilities in ways they never could before with the traditional on-premises model. Birst was "born in the cloud" and is the top-rated Cloud BI solution according to industry analysts such as Gartner, Forrester, and others.
What's more, these same industry analysts also give Birst industry-leading rankings not just compared to other Cloud BI vendors, but also when compared to all BI vendors.
For example, the 2016 Gartner Critical Capabilities report takes an in-depth look at the product offerings of all the major BI & Analytics vendors, and then assigns scores to each vendor for 5 major use case scenarios and also 15 different specific BI & Analytics capabilities.
It is worth noting that Birst is the only vendor which scored in the top 2 of all 5 use case scenarios, and for the 15 critical BI & Analytics capabilities, which are each scored on a 1-5 basis for each vendor (5 being the best score), Birst had the most 4 and 5 scores out of all the vendors. This includes not only Cloud BI vendors but also all of the major traditional BI vendors such as SAS, IBM, MicroStrategy, Microsoft, Information Builders, TIBCO, Qlik, Tableau, and others. Birst received the highest scores for Governed Data Discovery in Gartner’s 2016 Critical Capabilities report.
Likewise, in the 2017 Gartner Critical Capabilities report, Birst continued to outshine other vendors (Cloud BI and traditional BI vendors) by receiving, for the second year in a row, the most 4 and 5 scores out of all 26 vendors in the report for the 15 critical capabilities. Birst also earned top or near-top rankings in 4 out of the 5 BI use cases.
