Birst is real business intelligence – it's not "BI light" or "BI limited" or just "visualization" or "reporting" or “pivot tables on the Web”. Birst provides all of the functionality that you expect from an enterprise class Business Intelligence (BI) solution, but it's affordable enough for small to medium businesses and enterprise departments. As a cloud service, Birst allows you to upload raw data directly, avoiding the need to build a local database instance.
Birst is the only end-to-end Business Intelligence (BI) suite built for the cloud with fully integrated ETL, Enterprise Reporting, Ad-hoc Query and Analysis and Dashboarding. Birst is delivered as an on-demand model but also has the unique ability to report both on data that stays on premise as well as data that is loaded into the cloud.
