Bellevue-based Business Intelligence company Pyramid Analytics announced a collaboration with Microsoft on Thursday, July 23 that will bring the growing business’s platform to a multitude of new users.
Pyramid’s VP of Marketing, Alberto Sutton was excited to announce the news, saying that “the vision that we have about governance combined with user agility is what the customers are looking for. Combining strong leadership and our understanding of the customers, we are confident that we will continue to grow fast and lead.”
Business Intelligence software, which helps companies analyze, monitor and report data, can help employers gain better insights into their business, Sutton said. While many companies use desktop-based technologies, Pyramid Analytics’ flagship suite, BI Office, is stored on a centralized server.
From the start, BI Office was developed to combine user ease and data visualization tools with strong security, said Sutton. The BI Office interface also resembles the well-known Microsoft interface.
Under the agreement with Microsoft, the technology giant’s employees will work with software that has various modules and tools added on. Users can use the modules to put data in context via charts, graphics and other means.
It is also available on any device, including mobile phones.
“Our technology is targeted towards big companies that want to bring Business Intelligence to a lot of their users,” said Sutton. “Today, we are revealing the work that has been in the works for a while.”
The small but growing Business Intelligence company has over 350,000 users and has been tripling each year for the last three years. Prior to their work with Microsoft, Pyramid Anayltics has worked with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, Siemens, Blue Cross of Idaho, and others.
Sutton said the company is on track to continue growing. “We have a strong trajectory and the future is to amplify that trajectory and be a leader in the United States,” he said.
