[loadposition peter}“Yellowfin’s business model, and business-user-focused approach to BI, has been very well received by the UK and broader European channel market.
“We’re delighted to have recruited some of Europe’s most sophisticated BI resellers in such a short space of time.”
According to Baxter, resellers were choosing to work with Yellowfin for two main
“First and foremost, our go-to-market strategy in EMEA is 100% indirect and we will therefore never compete with our partners on software or professional services. Secondly, our BI solution is able to meet end-customer demand for pervasive BI by being easy for business users to work with.”
David Pearson – managing director of recently signed UK reseller partner, Orion & Associates – said that Yellowfin’s partner-focused market approach, end-user ease-of-use and low total cost of ownership provided an ideal fit for Orion & Associates’ existing business model.
“Yellowfin enables business users to independently access data-based insights while giving IT the governance features needed to enable widespread BI deployments.”
