Who’s Behind

Who’s Behind 360Suite?

A Successful Company

360Suite is a product of GB&SMITH, an industry-leading software company founded in 2007 to develop innovative software solutions for Business Intelligence and Analytics(BI/A) leaders. The company has grown over time, but its mission has remained the same. Now, more than ever, GB&SMITH is committed to improving and expanding product offerings that empower BI/A leaders to release the true potential of their Data Analytics landscape. Having provided BI professionals with innovative solutions to maximize the value of SAP BusinessObjects for many years, we have now entered into the multi-BI market thanks to the acquisition of Kinesis-CI; software that provides a testing framework solution for Tableau.

The company’s winning formula for success — work hard to understand individual customer requirements and deliver the right solutions at the right time — has earned it numerous industry prizes, including Deloitte Fast50 and EY Entrepreneur of the Year.


Expert Leaders

The GB&SMITH leadership includes Business Intelligence founding fathers and experts who have been on the scene since before the dawn of Modern BI. With nearly a century of combined experience, they apply a variety of talents, skills, and outlooks to the task of inspiring new and better solutions to BI challenges. 360Suite is the brainchild of BI experts with big ideas who aren’t afraid to push boundaries, challenge assumptions, and take risks on the path to innovation.
