​ViFX strikes new partnership to bring cutting-edge Business Intelligence to NZ

“We see that access to sophisticated enterprise-grade analytics via a range of cloud delivery mechanisms is a potential game changer for many businesses."

As Silicon Valley continues to make leaps and bounds in Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Analytics, Kiwi technology firm ViFX has revealed a new partnership to bring the cutting-edge technology to New Zealand.

In partnering with Birst, a provider of cloud business intelligence, ViFX aims to empower local organisations through a combination of cloud-based architectures and a new way of thinking.

Birst provides a software-as-a-service application, stepping away from legacy solutions as businesses seek alternative ways to deliver BI across enterprise.

“We see that access to sophisticated enterprise-grade analytics via a range of cloud delivery mechanisms is a potential game changer for many businesses,” says Geoff Olliff, Director and Co-founder, ViFX.

“We are pleased to partner with Birst and bring such a leading analytics platform to New Zealand.”

Olliff believes that with the explosion of data, organisations are challenged to provide governance over centralised enterprise data, while still offering agility and self-service to business end users, and doing this in a way that makes sure the integrity of the data remains intact.

In using Birst’s virtual BI, Olliff says IT can now share centralised data with de-centralised business units and empower them to add, combine and compare this data with their own.

“Essentially, this delivers trusted data to executives along with agility and flexibility to business users,” Olliff adds.

In recognition of the technology, Birst was recently crowned winner of the Big Data and Analytics category at the Enterprise Innovation Awards 2015 - established to identify companies in the Asia Pacific market that are key innovators within the BI space.

“Our commitment is to lead the analytics industry in innovation through a networked approach to business intelligence that delivers the strongest value possible to our customers,” adds Jay Larson, CEO, Birst.

“To be able to break the siloes and create a unified view of data across the entire value chain of an organisation means that we are delivering true business value.”
