Birst’s Networked BI is a new approach to delivering data-as-a-service (DaaS) based on the idea that trusted and well-governed data is not at odds with speed and ease of use.
A fundamental capability of Networked BI is multitenancy, which enables the creation of virtual—not physical—BI tenants that relate to each other.
Networked BIallows business teams, such as finance, customer support, sales and marketing to work on their own, while staying networked to a central, governed data set. Teams can use their virtual copies of the high-performance data tier to gain access to centralized data and blend that with their local data and spreadsheets.

Infor Birst allows to create an adaptive interface where any user can automatically surface new, personalized insights, with AI-powered BI, and easily interact with business data to make better decisions.
