Gartner recently released the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. In its report, Gartner states that Birst has "defined the pioneering vision of what a set of cloud BI and analytics capabilities should look like". Birst's platform features "a unique two-tier data architecture" coupled with a BI and analytics platform and allows customers to keep their data on-premises if they so choose, thus automating the process of refining the data and creating a more unified model/view of the data, and adds a BI layer for business users' analytics needs.
Weaknesses identified about Birst are around the lack of adoption/penetration of its data discovery and mobile capabilities. Birst is still most often deployed departmentally, and "must successfully position itself as a complement to the enterprise standard".
