Taking Business Intelligence to the Next Level

Today’s data-driven businesses are making faster, more accurate decisions based on facts rather than perception. But to become truly data-driven, businesses need a platform that fully leverages all their data. Many organizations have discovered that their current business intelligence platforms are incomplete and not fit for purpose. This leaves them stuck in the past, making slow decisions, no decisions, or worse, bad decisions.

The Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform changes that. It empowers people with augmented, automated, and collaborative insights that simplify and guide the use of data in decision-making. It combines governed self-service analytics with artificial intelligence (AI) and brings data prep, business analytics, and data science together into one frictionless platform. Providing users with insights for timely and effective decision-making – that is Decision Intelligence.

AI lowers the skills barrier by automating the highly technical work needed to prepare and analyze data and create and share reports and dashboards. By lowering the skills barrier, it empowers anyone – from the C-suite to the frontline – to integrate faster, more intelligent decision-making into their organization.


Omri Kohl , Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Pyramid Analytics: “We are delighted to welcome Martin to Pyramid. Martin has a strong track record of success within the technology industry, and his deep expertise on the value of data & analytics will be much appreciated by Pyramid’s partners and customers. His extensive international leadership and experience will be essential as we further accelerate Pyramid’s strong growth in the DACH region.”

Martin McDonald , Vice President DACH, Pyramid Analytics: “The Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform is built for what’s next in data and analytics. It’s gratifying to represent the only complete, unified Decision Intelligence Platform and bring the power of business intelligence and advanced analytics to all enterprise decision makers. DACH is an exciting region for Pyramid, right at the heart of the European economy and home to world-leading organisations with their eyes set on advancing their use of data. DACH is also the home of SAP – a space where Pyramid has a powerful set of capabilities that I look forward to sharing with partners and customers in the months and years ahead. I am proud to join this team, full of the brightest minds in the industry, and look forward to expanding the business and its success in the DACH region.”
