John Schwarz founded Visier to address what he saw as the major failing of business intelligence and big data analytics.
He had a front row seat in this market while leading Business Objects, the largest global business intelligence provider (acquired by SAP).

Their applied business analytics project is working. Today, more than a hundred blue chip companies have selected Visier as their people strategy platform and are achieving incredible results. And that’s just the beginning.
