FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Decision First Technologies Expands into the BI Cloud Market with Extensive Offerings, a New Website and a Host of Benefits
BI in the cloud is now a core tenant of Decision First business intelligence practice
ATLANTA, GA – March 5, 2015 – As the next natural step in the deployment of BI landscapes, Decision First Technologies™ (DFT) is launching its BI in the Cloud practice in response to strong SAP® customer demand. This advanced approach to SAP® BusinessObjects™ (BO) and SAP HANA® in the cloud translates into flexible server and licensing options, a pay-as-you-go billing structure and immediate access to BO and its suite of BI tools for DFT customers.
Partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for hosting allows DFT to put together a strong cloud offering that delivers reliability, security and efficiency as businesses turn toward a more flexible, custom cloud environment.
“Our customer interest in SAP cloud offerings has grown steadily over the last year, and we remain committed to meeting, exceeding and supporting the business needs of our clients,” explains Amanda Wierling, Director of Marketing for Decision First Technologies. “Our BI in the Cloud practice is a key component of a successful BI strategy that delivers an independent analytics environment in which users can analyze given data sets, review standard visualizations and manage their own BI environment without taping into IT personnel, budget or infrastructure.”
DFT’s BI in the Cloud customers gain immediate access to the BO suite of tools including: operational reporting, ad hoc query and analysis, dashboards and visualizations, data exploration and more. Plus, deployment speeds are impressive, scalability is limitless and the ability to share information across the company on various devices means more people are in the know. The program is also flexible to accommodate sudden increases or decreases in the number of users, access to data across various devices or browsers, and easier budget approval through the operational expense model.
“We’ve already seen this program work for numerous customers where, in some cases, it gives the Sales and Finance departments the ability to provide analytic solutions without depending on IT. Still others use it to gain access to per-configured testing and development sites,” states Scott Golden, Co-Founder and Vice President of Services for Decision First Technologies. “We know there’s plenty of application opportunity out there and this kind of flexibility makes sense for almost every business model. It’s secure, fast and affordable, and we are ready to help companies of all sizes with strategy, hosting, deployment, migration and management.”
