SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2015) - Birst, the global leader in Cloud BI and Analytics, has been awarded the Most Promising Analytics Solution at the NetworkWorld Asia Information Management Awards 2015. The award is presented to the company voted by the judging panel of IT leaders as providing the most potential positive impact to their organisations in the future. Defeating two other finalists, Birst was voted and named the overall winner for its innovation around delivery of analytics to users by the NetworkWorld Asia editors and more than 100 Asia Pacific CIOs and senior IT decision makers.
