You can read my analysis in this briefing note. It’s free to download, you’ll just need to log in with a free account. If you don’t have one already it only takes a minute to register, and is even quicker if you have a LinkedIn account.
To accompany this briefing note you can now also download this On the Radar briefing note I wrote about Birst earlier this year. This briefing note follows a simple “ten questions” format, which we designed to provide a concise but thorough overview of a company and its products and services. We use this format to focus on the capability and suitability of specialist vendors—to help you build the best possible vendor shortlists when looking to make new technology investments. This report was previously available only to premium subscribers to our Analytics and Information Management research program, but you can now download it for free once you’ve registered for a free member account.
