Adapt IT partners with Yellowfin for world-class BI solution offering

South Africa based specialist ICT services provider, Adapt IT, has signed a reseller agreement with global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin.

Under the guidelines of the partnership, Adapt IT will sell Yellowfin’s BI platform, and associated suite of professional services, to its current and future clients throughout South Africa.

With over 14 years experience in providing complete and integrated BI solutions to its clients, Adapt IT has formed strategic partnerships with the world’s leading technology and business software providers, delivering customers robust, reliable and enduring solutions. Adapt IT Senior Executive for Business Solutions, Leon Breedt, said that Adapt IT partnered with Yellowfin in order to enhance its technology portfolio by offering its clients a world-class BI solution.

“Together with our strategic technology partners, we have cemented a solid reputation and become a trusted advisor to South Africa’s leading businesses across a wide range of industries,” said Breedt. “In an ever-changing and increasingly competitive global business environment, it has never been more important for organisations to have information that allows them to optimise processes, identify risks and drive decision-making. BI as a strategic tool is thus a critical element of any successful business.”

Breedt added that Adapt IT’s mission is to help clients draw meaningful and actionable insights from their operational data, assisting them to transform it into timely, valuable knowledge through effective analytics solutions, which enable smart decision-making.

“Our solutions do not conform to a one-size-fits-all philosophy,” said Breedt. “We collaborate with a diverse array of technology partners, such as Yellowfin, to deliver the most appropriate solution for the unique business needs of each client.”

Yellowfin, a recognised international leader in BI, has been measured among the world’s elite BI vendors by leading analyst firms. Created with a focus on user experience and the development of easy-to-use Web-based interfaces, Yellowfin was designed from the ground up to make BI easy, said Yellowfin South Africa Marketing and Sales Director, Gustav Piater.

“We pride ourselves on working closely with our partners and clients to better understand their needs in a shifting technology landscape,” said Piater. “The ease of business we enable is matched only by the ease-of-use that is the foundation of Yellowfin’s BI solution. This is borne out by the fact that Yellowfin boasts over two million end-users and more than ten thousand clients in over 70 countries.”

According to Breedt, the fact that Yellowfin is extremely easy to implement and easy-to-use is just one of the reasons Adapt IT chose to add it to its portfolio.

“Yellowfin was selected as a partner based on its technology, scalability, self-service, price point and global experience,” said Breedt. “It is a world-class solution with cross-industry experience and a growing global user base. Yellowfin South Africa offers extremely professional service with great client focus. All of these factors combined informed our decision to partner with Yellowfin.”

Piater added that Yellowfin South Africa was pleased to be able to assist Adapt IT in providing its customers with a comprehensive BI offering.

“Yellowfin has been built to enable business users to get the BI content they need without having to turn into overnight BI experts or data analysts,” said Piater. “We are looking forward to helping Adapt IT bring BI built for business to its customers.”
