What is Decision Intelligence?

Decision Intelligence is the fast-emerging, next big innovation in analytics which will accelerate data-driven transformation. There is more data available for analytics than ever before. More people are interested in making decisions with data. More sophisticated analytics are in demand.

Decision Intelligence is designed to speed up insights, scale adoption, and simplify analytics. More people want and require access to data to make faster, more intelligent decisions. These include internal and external non-technical stakeholders. Decision Intelligence empowers anyone to make faster, more intelligent decisions. And that can change everything.

Decision Intelligence is the Next Big Analytics Innovation

The next major innovation in analytics is Artificial Intelligence (AI). Applying AI across Data Prep, Business Analytics, and Data Science is what separates Decision Intelligence from traditional business intelligence tools such as Microsoft Power BI, Qlik, and Tableau. AI lowers the skills barrier by automating the highly technical work needed to prepare and analyze data and create and share reports and dashboards.

The Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform delivers data-driven insights for anyone to make faster, more intelligent decisions. The Pyramid Platform provides instant access to any data, enables automated governed self-service for any person, and serves any analytics need, from the simple to the sophisticated. By uniquely combining Data Prep, Business Analytics, and Data Science with AI guidance in a single environment, the Pyramid Platform reduces cost and complexity while accelerating growth and innovation. This enables a strategic, organization-wide approach to Business Intelligence and Analytics.

$215.7 Billion Total Addressable Market

Worldwide spending on big data and business analytics (BDA) solutions was forecast to reach $215.7 billion in 2021, an increase of 10.1% over 2020, according to a new update to the Worldwide Big Data and Analytics Spending Guide from International Data Corporation (IDC). The forecast also shows that BDA spending will gain strength over the next five years as the global economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for global BDA spending over the 2021-2025 forecast period will be 12.8%.

Investor Quotes

Scott Hilleboe, Co-Head, H.I.G. Growth Partners: “H.I.G. partners with industry-leading companies to drive transformative change. Pyramid is a model of transformation.

“H.I.G. is excited to partner with Pyramid in their next stage of growth. Pyramid drives exceptional ROI to customers by empowering them to make faster, more intelligent decisions leveraging advanced analytics and data insights. I’m thrilled to join the Board of Directors and to collaborate with an exceptional leadership team who have brought a truly innovative, differentiated technology to market.”

Yoav Tzruya, General Partner, JVP: “As experienced investors in the data and analytics, with proven successes such as Qlik, which was led by JVP’s founder & chairperson, Erel Margalit, from early-stage to post-IPO, we are happy to continue and support Pyramid Analytics.

“Analytics solutions, and especially BI systems, have struggled for more than 2 decades, with the promise on delivering true enterprise-wide decision-support capabilities. Today, such solutions are further crippled, coming up short on the support for diverse and distributed data sources, ever-increasing quantities of data, intuitive user experience, while providing needed enterprise capabilities. Pyramid Analytics is the only solution that brings decision intelligence capabilities for anyone – from C-suite to the front-line – to make faster, more intelligent decisions.”

Over this time, the Pyramid leadership team has turned their vision for giving anyone in an organization the power of data and analytics to make faster, more intelligent decisions into reality. Technology innovations, customer growth, industry analyst recognition and commercial success have followed. We are proud to deepen our partnership, and we look forward to being part of Pyramid’s next stage of growth.”

With 110% net customer retention rate and nearly 2,500 organizations that use Pyramid to speed up insights, scale adoption, and simplify analytics for more than 1 million people, we are truly excited to support its next steps of growth.”
