Ifor and Snowflake partner

Birst integrated platform eliminates the need for separate ETL, data modeling, data prep & analytics tools.

Infor is partnering with Snowflake, the cloud data platform, to help enterprises build automated data warehouses using the Birst full-stack analytics and BI platform.  


Birst is a single, integrated, end-to-end platform for building automated data warehouses natively on Snowflake, eliminating the need for separate ELT/ETL (extract, load & transform, and extract, transform & load), data modeling, data preparation and analytics tools. In addition, the Birst platform will provide enterprise data governance and fine-grained control/security, at the row and column level, within Snowflake, along with auditing and built-in usage tracking.  


Joint customers can use Birst’s self-service data preparation capabilities to blend end-user-created data with enterprise data in Snowflake, providing true self-service for business users and analysts.


Birst and Snowflake both run natively in AWS (Amazon Web Services), which speeds data processing and querying, while obviating the need to export data out of Snowflake. 


“We are excited about our partnership with Infor,” said Kevin Miller, Snowflake vice president of systems integrators. “With this integration, customers can now take advantage of Birst’s Networked BI automation and intelligence within Snowflake. This will allow customers an optimized experience while eliminating unnecessary data movement.” 


Kim Davis, Infor vice president of BI & analytics partnerships, said, “Our joint customers will benefit from the speed, scalability, and cost-effectiveness of Snowflake’s zero-management, cloud-built data warehouse. Through this partnership, users can perform all ELT transformations and data warehouse automation within the Snowflake database.”


The Birst cloud BI and analytics platform helps organizations understand and optimize processes in less time than traditional solutions. Built with patented automation and machine learning technologies, Birst connects teams and applications across the organization via a trusted network of analytics, delivering insights that help organizations make smarter decisions. This unique approach has helped organizations transform the way they operate, often in 90 days or less.
