Birst shapes data analytics around the user
Data is in many ways the lifeblood of business, yet there are many different ways to present and use the results of analysis.
Business intelligence specialist Birst is launching its Birst 5X Adaptive User Experience which allows users to work with data in the way they want without suppressing their curiosity and creativity.
The new release includes updates to Birst Dashboards and Visual Discovery Capabilities, and an enhanced Birst Mobile experience. In addition it introduces an Open Client Interface that enables users to continue with their preferred front-end tool, such as Tableau, Microsoft Excel or R, to analyze a trusted source of data in the form of Birst's User Data Tier.
Allowing people to use their tool of choice on top of a complete and trusted source of data delivers a two-tier analytics model that combines agility with governance. The BI solution adapts to a person's mobile work style too so that key business insights are available anywhere and anytime.
"Birst is continuing to pioneer a two-tier approach to BI and analytics. With Birst 5X we are rethinking the user experience by focusing on how people interact with data instead of putting them in a rigid user role", says Junaid Saiyed, VP Product Management and Engineering, Birst. "Birst 5X gives people an agile experience that adapts to their work style, whether they need operational dashboards or visual discovery, in the office or on the road, and all against a trusted source of truth".
Birst 5X allows users to seamlessly switch between modes so they can use both dashboards and visual discovery. It supports disconnected analysis on mobile devices so that users can access critical information wherever they are. A responsive design also adjusts how the data is displayed based on the form factor of the device.
