Together, TriCore and Birst will provide agile business analytics to enable customers to fully realize the ROI previously made in core CRM, ERP and other strategic operational systems by providing insight across the enterprise.

“TriCore is very cloud focused; we are looking to offer a plug and play cloud platform, where we can provide our customers CRM applications, ERP applications and other strategic applications. We have found a tremendous BI cloud application with Birst and look forward to providing industry-leading businesses with this value-based innovative solution,” said Brian Jordan, General Manager of Business Intelligence at TriCore.
