Birst, a San Francisco-based global leader in cloud business intelligence and analytics products, has announced new capabilities for its Networked BI Platform, including Birst Mobile for Android, Collaboration, and End-User Data Preparation.

According to the firm, “these new capabilities further empower enterprise end users to work with data autonomously with unprecedented agility and speed, while maintaining governance and consistency.” Birst’s Networked BI Platform creates a network of interwoven BI instances that share a common analytical fabric. The result: eliminating data silos to ensure collaboration and accelerate the delivery of BI across the enterprise, the firm explains.

With these new capabilities, “Birst delivers the end-user ease-of-use and governance capabilities necessary for enterprise-wide analytics,” the firm states. “End-User Data Preparation gives users the ability to rapidly refine their own data, analyze it by itself, or blend it with data from other folks in the BI network.  Now, all users can glean insights on their own while also staying networked and connected to other users. This eliminates the siloes that emerge from analyzing data on a desktop and ensures one seamless connection.”

Birst’s Collaboration capability enables any user in the network to collaborate through in-context discussion threads that mimic their daily social media interactions, the firm adds.

“In contrast to the basic collaboration capabilities offered by other BI platforms, user posts, within Birst, capture the data in context, ensuring that users can see the data as it was, when the original posts were created. Additionally, Birst Mobile for Android enables global audiences to access the same data whether on a desktop, laptop or mobile. Offline capabilities automatically sync data and content so business users can view mobile analytics even when not connected.”
