Celebrating the Past & Looking Forward
with the Yellowfin Founders

How It All Started…


The year was 2004. Mark Zuckerberg launched TheFacebook, Google introduced Gmail on April Fools’ Day (it was no joke), and Yellowfin BI, the world-class analytics solution, was born.

Frustrated by the cost, complexity, and ineffectiveness of business intelligence (BI) and analytics tools, founders Glen Rabie and Justin Hewitt created Yellowfin because they thought they could do better…and they did.

Twenty years later, the team at Yellowfin continues to maintain the founders’ passion for creating products that help organizations across all sectors discover, understand, and act faster on the opportunities buried in their business data.

The leader in innovation

After 20 years, Yellowfin continues to be recognized as a leader in innovation in the BI and analytics industry. We have had so many firsts, we’ve lost count, and best of all, there are way more exciting developments in the pipeline. From advanced automation of insights detection and alerting, to fully guided, natural language query, we have a history of helping our customers know ‘why’ faster.

In any fiercely competitive market, the key to sales success is differentiation. Yellowfin’s product innovation and functionality, together with their “go to market” strategy and culture, has been instrumental in enabling AIGS Insights to build a successful and “different” BI and Data Analytics business."
