Top Executive: CEO Jay Larson
Birst offers a Software-as-a-Service business intelligence platform with visual analytics and an automated data warehouse system. Birst's value proposition is that its cloud system is a less complex, less expensive alternative to on-premise BI systems.
San Francisco-based Birst was founded in 2004. The company recently named former Jive Software and SuccessFactors executive Jay Larson to be the company's new CEO, taking over from co-founder Brad Peters, who's focusing on product development. The company also launched an OEM partner program for developers who embed Birst within their solutions.
