Birst Releases Smart Analytics Suite of Solutions

Birst, an Infor company and a provider of Cloud Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics for the Enterprise, is introducing its Smart Analytics family of solutions, powered by Infor Coleman AI.

"AI is completely changing the way that people work and interact with data," said Brad Peters, SVP and General Manager of Birst. "Starting with Smart Insights, our Smart Analytics solutions will help expand the reach of BI more broadly than ever before.  Business users will take advantage of capabilities that until now had been available only to highly skilled data scientists. They'll gain insights from data in a faster and more scalable way – often discovering relationships among data that they may not even have considered." 

Birst Smart Analytics is a new set of AI-enabled capabilities that elevate organizations above traditional reports and dashboards, using machine learning algorithms to power intelligent insights not previously available to business users.

Built with patented technologies, Birst Smart Analytics delivers automated and personalized insights and recommendations that transform the Business Intelligence (BI) experience from descriptive (what is happening) to diagnostic (why is it happening) and predictive (what will happen).

Smart Insights, the first in this series of capabilities, empowers business users to tap into the power of data science and instantly understand the variables driving their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

Requiring no specialized expertise, Smart Insights helps business users find meaningful relationships between a given KPI and countless business variables, and then automatically generate visualizations and dashboards that explain the KPI's behavior.

Additional capabilities that Birst plans to introduce, in the Smart Analytics family, include Anomaly Detection, Natural Language Generation/Querying (NLG/NLQ), and Intelligent Alerting, among others.
