In 2014, you wouldn't think the market (or your organization) could possibly make room for another business intelligence (BI) vendor, but think again. I just took a look at Decisyon, Inc., whose flagship product, Decisyon 360, offers a unified BI and planning platform with a modern architecture (e.g. all Java and HTML5) and integrated functionality built from the ground up for collaboration, transactions, the cloud and mobile. What more could you ask?
Founded in Italy in 2005, Decisyon has 200 European customers, many of which are large brand name companies, such as Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, and Pfizer. Last year, the company moved its headquarters to Stamford, CT where it hopes to capitalize on its European success by winning the hearts and minds of U.S.-based organizations. From the demo I saw, that shouldn't be a problem.
Staffed by experienced BI and planning professionals from IBM, Hyperion, Oracle, SAP, Dell, and Outlooksoft, Decisyon has 90 employees and $10 million in venture funding with another $20 million in the works. Company officials say the company is especially strong in pharmaceuticals and financial services.
Pricing starts at about $65,000 for 20 users for a base configuration, which includes reporting, analysis and collaboration modules. Customers often later add planning, forecasting, transaction execution and/or mobile modules. Basically, you only pay for the functionality you need. Decisyon also offers two overlay applications, one for integrating social media analysis with CRM solutions and another for monitoring and managing supply chain and manufacturing processes.
The breadth and functionality of these social CRM and manufacturing/supply chain applications attest to the functional sophistication and architectural integration of the Decisyon platform. If you want to break out of the traditional BI mold and build real business-driven analytical applications, then you should look at Decisyon.
