Global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, is giving away its cloud solution free of charge – for a limited time – on Amazon Web Services.
Yellowfin is offering a licence for its full BI enterprise-grade solution as a way of tempting non-Yellowfin users to deploy the software and test it out over a 12-month period, after which the licence will automatically lapse.
Offered free (excluding AWS usage fees) via the AWS marketplace, Yellowfin says its enterprise-grade BI environment can be deployed in just minutes once the free subscription license is activated.
According to Yellowfin, the free offering is a way of getting non-users into its BI solution for the first time, with the expectation they will likely sign-up and pay for a licence after the 12-months as usage is further expanded.
Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie, said Yellowfin for AWS “makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyse data – for organisations of all sizes and users of all types.”
“Users can also easily connect their Yellowfin for AWS to Amazon Redshift – AWS’s fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service.”
According to Rabie, Yellowfin has seen a strong trend of direct customers and SaaS providers deploying Yellowfin on AWS and then connecting to Amazon Redshift.
“People love the cloud because it’s fast to deploy, scalable and affordable. And, that’s exactly what Yellowfin for AWS delivers, making it easy for non-technical users to quickly create and share an unlimited number of beautiful visualisations, reports and dashboards from any device for free.
“Not only can users take advantage of this free offer straight away, the extreme scalability of both solutions means it’s easy to upgrade at anytime, to start performing Big Data Analytics quickly and cost-effectively, and seamlessly scale throughout the enterprise.”
