Networked BI - Birst

Birst’s “Networked BI” completely redefines the way BI is delivered and consumed. This new technology enables global governance with local execution and further realizes Birst’s vision of trusted and agile collaboration between centralized and decentralized teams. Traditionally, organizations have depended on centralized IT to physically replicate data and metadata infrastructures to enable analytics for decentralized groups. This approach is time consuming, expensive and, ultimately, a barrier to end-user self-service. Instead, “Networked BI” virtualizes the entire BI ecosystem, transforming every aspect of an organization’s approach to analytics, from application development lifecycles to end-user generated data mashups and content. Built on top of Birst’s modern, multi-tenant cloud architecture, “Networked BI” creates a network of interwoven BI instances that share a common analytical fabric. This enables organizations to expand the use of BI across multiple regions, departments and customers in a more agile way, and empowers these decentralized groups to augment the global analytical fabric with their own local data. The result is enterprise-grade scalability at unprecedented speed and end-user freedom with self-service data preparation capabilities and transparent governance. By bringing analytics to the virtual world with “Networked BI,” Birst eliminates data silos once and for all and dramatically accelerates the delivery of BI across the enterprise.
