Birst Brings Enterprise-Caliber Cloud BI to SAP HANA Customers

Fast, Flexible and Most Powerful Analytics in the Industry Now Available on SAP's In-Memory Data Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Birst, the leader in Cloud BI, today announced Birst for SAP HANA to empower organizations to take advantage of Birst's enterprise-caliber analytics capabilities on top of the latest in-memory technology from SAP. By combining the speed of HANA and the analytic horsepower of Birst, customers can analyze more data in more detail and do so faster than ever before.

Birst is providing a new native cloud alternative for SAP customers who have previously had to choose between aging legacy BI tools that take months to implement and require large teams to support, and limited data discovery tools that are restricted to analysts and create information anarchy with silos of analysis. With Birst for SAP HANA, everyday business users have the power to run robust analytics, including visualizations, dashboards and reports, on the fastest database available today. Paired with HANA, organizations can take advantage of Birst's innovative Cloud BI platform to easily analyze huge data sets with sub-second response times.

"Birst and HANA are exceptionally well suited for each other. Birst is the only enterprise caliber BI solution designed with the agility that HANA makes possible," said Birst Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Brad Peters. "Legacy BI is so brittle and cumbersome that much of HANA's value is lost, and desktop discovery tools with their non-relational databases, can't scale to the same types of problems that HANA and Birst can handle together. It's truly a unique combination in the marketplace."

Birst is the first and only BI platform that automates the building of a data warehouse within HANA, dramatically speeding up the time it takes to derive the benefits from in-memory performance. With Birst, SAP customers can access their existing HANA data live and combine it with their other data sources. By leveraging Birst, users can now can make real-time decisions on issues such as supply chain management, financial risk, and customer engagement. As more companies adopt in-memory computing technologies to handle a greater variety of data use cases, it becomes increasingly important to have an agile BI platform that provides immediate insights.

"In-memory computing technology is increasingly emerging as a key enabler for the digital business by empowering the agility, Web-scale processing and fast decision making needed to respond to the business challenges of the digital era," wrote Massimo Pezzini, Vice President and Gartner Fellow.(1)

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
