Brendan Hayes

Chief Technology Officer

Working for Beacon IT and in his own consultancy practice, Brendan has developed budgeting and performance management solutions for a wide variety of clients. Early in his career, Brendan recognised that the then-available BI tools were overly complex and difficult to implement, requiring large consulting engagements before customers could realise any benefit from the systems they were putting in place. This caused him to consider alternative approaches. He decided to develop a technology solution that significantly reduced the complexity and cost of business intelligence, and Saasabi was born.
