Along the way, Benjamin has found that it’s not about the next tool to create better user adoption, but a platform approach is needed to grow sustainable trust in data as a daily foundation for decision-making.

“As experienced investors in the data and analytics, with proven successes such as Qlik, which was led by JVP’s founder & chairperson, Erel Margalit, from early-stage to post-IPO, we are happy to continue and support Pyramid Analytics.
“Analytics solutions, and especially BI systems, have struggled for more than 2 decades, with the promise of delivering true enterprise-wide decision-support capabilities. Today, such solutions are further crippled, coming up short on the support for diverse and distributed data sources, ever-increasing quantities of data, and intuitive user experience, while providing needed enterprise capabilities. Pyramid Analytics is the only solution that brings decision intelligence capabilities for anyone – from C-suite to the front-line – to make faster, more intelligent decisions.”
