Big Data Veteran Launches New BI Company Alpine Metrics

Alpine Metrics leans on its deep experience in big data and analytics to deliver intelligence without effort to everyday business users

Bozeman, MT—August 27, 2012—Former Mountain Systems founder Erik Udstuen has launched a new business intelligence software company named Alpine Metrics and will serve as its CEO. The company brings the benefits of automated analytics and optimization to every business without complexity or capital investment required.

Erik is joined by several industry veterans to deliver a unique cloud-based service that translates decades of experience improving industrial processes using advanced analytics into the field of business process optimization that everyday business users can apply with ease.

Prior to launching Alpine Metrics, Erik spent the last five years running General Electric's software division that developed a highly successful big data and analytics strategy for GE focused on industrial automation and asset lifecycle management. Erik's relationship with GE started in 2003 when GE purchased Mountain Systems - an analytics software company where he was co-founder and CEO. The "big data" technology developed by Mountain Systems today serves tens of thousands of GE's industrial customers worldwide.

Alpine Metrics leverages its extensive experience with industrial process improvement and applies it to business processes starting with key Sales and Marketing metrics. Automated techniques for controlling process flow, balancing resource utilization, and maximizing quality and efficiency are applied widely in industrial settings today – but have yet to be applied in an accessible and scalable way to business processes. Alpine Metrics solves this by packaging its experience and sophisticated science in a way that makes analytics effortless for all users within a company's business community.

The company's product works seamlessly with popular enterprise software packages. The simplicity, strength, and elegance of modern "Software as a Service" (SaaS) environments creates tremendous opportunities for everyday business users to experience the benefits of automated analytics and optimization techniques – allowing them proactively and efficiently take control of their own productivity.

Speaking of the start-up Erik, commented: "Through the proliferation of modern SaaS enterprise systems, many businesses now have the platform and the critical foundation of data necessary to optimize their business for true competitive advantage. Alpine Metrics packages the best science and experience of process optimization to give everyone control of their business."
