Australia's Pulse Mining Systems has teamed up with Cloud BI and technology provider Birst to develop a new analytics solution for data visualisation and analytics.

Pulse Mining Systems delivers enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications specifically made for the mining sector.

Available to customers on any device, the Pulse Mining Analytics package provides anywhere-access to data in a flexible method from the cloud.

Pulse Mining can embed Birst into its new analytics product and offer fast integration with the company's mining ERP application, as well as other SAP and Oracle tools.

"Birst helps organisations like Pulse Mining get access to new analytic and business intelligence services in a rapid and usable fashion."

The embedded Cloud BI platform is claimed to offer full insight into data to improve production, cut operating costs, improve decision-making and increase profitability.

Pulse Mining visualisation and analytics manager Rob Parvin said: "The traditional BI approach was not either a valid option or appropriate for an agile methodology, with respect to the creation of analytical capability for organisations.

"Birst represents the next evolution of BI software, allowing us to implement a single, tool-based development platform and a flexible cloud infrastructure delivery model."

Starting from a zero base, Pulse Mining developed the new analytical tools for a selection of clients in less than six months.

Birst chief product officer Brad Peters said: "Birst uses its unique approach to organising data across enterprise and user layers in order to expand access to data and analytics across the business.

"Birst helps organisations like Pulse Mining get access to new analytic and business intelligence services in a rapid and usable fashion."

Pulse Mining is also using Birst internally to generate reports and analyse data around the company's sales and operations performance activities.
