Decision Intelligence is the Next Big Data 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.  


Omri Kohl, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Pyramid Analytics: “We are delighted to welcome such an experienced, talented, and insightful person into the Pyramid family. Bill has a strong track record of delivering excellence with channel partners. His arrival is another sign of our commitment to significantly investing in our own partner ecosystems globally.”

Bill Clayton, VP of Global Partner Sales, UKI, Pyramid Analytics: “Pyramid is an enormously exciting and innovative company. Our Decision Intelligence Platform is the next big thing in analytics. There is a huge opportunity to work with our partners for joint mutual growth, providing them with access to a wide range of complementary technology, including the pioneering decision intelligence capabilities of the Pyramid Platform.  

“It’s exhilarating to join such a high-performing team, and it will be a pleasure to lead them into the next stage of our European expansion and to aid in growing the partner ecosystem on a global level, to even greater success.”
