NEW YORK – Jun 20, 2018
Birst, an Infor company and a leader in Cloud Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics for the Enterprise, today announced an incentive program for Domo customers, which will enable them to move to Birst’s enterprise-class, cloud-based platform for networked business intelligence (BI).
For a limited time, current Domo customers who purchase a subscription of at least two years to a comparable solution from Birst will receive six months of the subscription at no charge. This incentive program reduces the investment for Domo customers to migrate to Birst’s leading Cloud BI and Analytics platform.
The incentive program is subject to additional terms. Domo customers interested in learning more about the incentive program can contact a Birst representative for more details.
Brad Peters, SVP and General Manager of Birst, said, “Birst’s unique ability to handle the complexity of enterprise use cases – along with its financially sound business foundation that companies expect when making long-term investments – provide an unmatched set of capabilities, in the cloud, for larger organizations.”
Birst’s enterprise-class platform delivers the speed, self-service and agility that front-line business professionals demand – along with the scale, security and governance to meet rigorous corporate standards. Moreover, the functional richness of the Birst platform makes it ideal for addressing the sophisticated environments, data models and business process needs of large organizations.
“The BI market has reached a point of maturity, where customers have learned to recognize the value of the more functionally rich platforms available,” Peters said. “At Birst, we have remained committed to customer success and technology innovation. Our customers trust they’re working with a viable, fiscally-disciplined partner that delivers modern solutions to help customers grow their businesses and build their competitive advantage. This is why leading enterprises, around the world, depend on Birst to help transform their organizations – and why leading market research firms have recognized Birst’s key platform capabilities.”
The Birst platform is built using “smart” machine learning and automation technology that reduces human intervention. These augmented analytics capabilities are the next wave of disruption in the BI and analytics space. Together with a modern cloud architecture that eliminates traditional on-premises tasks, metadata reusability that makes development more efficient and more productive, and a superior user experience with industry-leading mobile capabilities, Birst can deliver more value to businesses in far less time than traditional solutions.
