Innovation & Development Grant To BI Builders

BI Builders helps organizations use data as a strategic asset to make business decisions faster and more accurate. We enable this with professional services and Xpert BI, our recognized data platform automation tool ensuring speed, productivity, reliability, and cost efficiency.

Since the launch of Xpert BI in 2012, the platform has been designed to complement and extend Microsoft’s data management and BI platforms. More specific the Microsoft SQL Server platform.

In order to provide our and new customers the flexibility to choose among various technology components for their data platform, we are expanding the integration and support of new technologies such as Azure Data Factory, Azure Data Lake and Azure Synapse. To accelerate this exciting expansion Innovation Norway has rewarded BI Builders an Innovation and Development grant assigned to the development of new software compatible with Azure. 

"Everyone at BI Builders is grateful for the support from Innovation Norway." says Executive Chairman, Kurt S Helland. Reports from Gartner has concluded that 40% of the organization's data management and data warehouse can be automated. This is however a manual and time-consuming process for most businesses. The innovation project will develop a solution that is compatible with Azure, thus offering a solution that isn't available in the market. "The new product will be especially relevant for large enterprises with a vast amount of data in the cloud, to ensure traceability and control" - Kurt S. Helland explains. 

When the project is finished BI Builders will have a new product in its portfolio. This new product will automate the use of Azure Data Factory, Azure Synapse, and Azure Data Lake. It will be easy for customers to efficiently use Azure as a data platform for such as reporting, advanced analytics, and machine learning. 

Leading the project is Head of Development, Sverre Helland. 

"Both existing and new customers have shown great interest in the new possibilities this Azure automation opens up for. Our R&D team is very happy that we have started this exciting and promising project" says Sverre Helland

Innovation Norway contributes to sustainable growth and exports for Norwegian businesses through capital and expertise. "Innovation Norway's support is very valuable to BI Builders. In addition to financial support, the competence program at Innovation Norway’s office in New York has increased our chances to succeed internationally." says Kurt S. Helland.

The progress of the project will be documented and shared on the BI Builders Blog regularly.
