Bistro App Store Offers Combination of Industry-specific BI Apps, Framework to Accelerate BI Deployments of Customized Solutions
ROSENHEIM, Germany & SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cubeware, which provides innovative business intelligence (BI) software and service solutions, today announced Bistro (Business Intelligence Application Store Rosenheim), an application store for business intelligence solutions, which promises to transform the way BI applications are sold, deployed, maintained and operated.
Bistro emerges in stark contrast to the traditional approach for deploying BI software, where vendors, partners and customers work with a set of software tools to create a highly customized solution specifically designed to address the needs of the individual customer. Bistro counters this approach by offering a combination of pre-defined applications along with industry- and market-specific feature sets that can be quickly assembled to dramatically reduce the time needed for customization so customers more quickly reap the benefits they need from their BI solution.
“Beyond what you would expect from a consumer app store, Bistro is a complete BI application search, operating and integration ecosystem designed to meet needs of our business customers,” said Wolfgang Seybold, Cubeware CEO. “Bistro combines a code repository, a best practices resource and a place where qualified partners contribute pre-customized apps and feature sets that can easily be assembled to create tailored BI solutions. As Bistro matures, it will transform the way BI solutions are developed and deployed. Bistro is uniquely positioned for SMBs and departments of large organizations.”
Bistro is built on the Apache Hadoop Open Source framework to provide the scale and capacity to ensure that all applications, files and repositories can scale to handle surging data volumes. Hadoop provides a scalable analytics framework that will accommodate Big Data volumes and projects that are beginning to emerge. Bistro also supports a wide range of BI applications that can be deployed without Hadoop. Cubeware has invited partners to post applications that once certified can be licensed by other Bistro users and partners.
“Bistro has the potential to transform how BI solutions are conceived, developed and deployed,” said Seybold. “Customers benefit because their solutions can be deployed quickly and cost effectively, partners can take advantage of the innovation available through the global reach of the Bistro app store, and any partner who posts and certifies their app will gain new license revenue. There are benefits available for everyone who participates.”
With Bistro currently under development by Cubeware, the team is accepting and certifying partner applications and content and will provide updates as new apps are added and qualified. Bistro will go live as a Beta offering on Thursday, December 20, 2012.
