Ease of Use

What do you like best about this product?

I have been working with Birst for more than a year. And as for now I find it very align with our IT business needs. It’s end to end BI on the cloud including storage , database,modeling and GUI development. One stop shop for all our analytical BI. The most important consideration is that I do not have to maintain DR and HA procedures. I do not have to wait for DBA, Storage or system guys. I just develop and responds fast to my management and company needs.
