Why watch?

If you haven’t already embedded Business Intelligence (BI) functionality into your application, chances are, your competitors have an advantage.

BI technology is becoming a common component of business applications used across all major job functions, departments and industries.

Gartner predicts that within two years, 25 percent of analytics capabilities will be embedded in business applications, up from only five percent in 2010. If you haven’t already added embedded BI to your software, the time is now.

Watch this Embedded BI Best Practices Webinar recording to discover how to successfully add an analytics module to your product suite, and dramatically enhance its salability and market value – minus the development stress you might expect.

Delight your customers and build your brand – all while avoiding the strain of independently developing, maintaining and supporting an in-house BI module.

“It’s commonly accepted that BI functionality is now in high demand across almost all major industries. If you’ve been thinking about embedding analytical capabilities into your core software suite, to meet the demands of your customers, this Webinar will show you how to make that ambition a reality.”

– Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie

Why should you act on embedded BI today?

If you don’t currently have an embedded BI solution, it’s time to act now: In a recent 2014 report by the Aberdeen Group, titled Embedded Analytics for the ISV, Principle Analyst and Vice President, Michael Lock, stated that most users have grown accustomed to sophisticated data interpretation and visualization. As a result, analytics can now be viewed as a “must have.” Lock hits the nail on the head, asserting that: “Today’s independent software vendor (ISV) is faced with a more complex choice beyond the binary question of: Do we embed analytics or not? The questions have now become: Do we build it or buy it?”

Respected analyst and researcher, Wayne Eckerson, argued in the TDWI paper Embedded Analytics: Closing the Loop Between Operational and Analytical Applications that “the best way to simplify and operationalize BI is to embed it directly into operational applications and processes that drive the business.”

Eckerson went on to suggest that much of the future of BI, and its continued success in terms of user adoption and pervasive deployments, is reliant on embedded BI.

“Rather than using standalone BI toolsets that require setup and training, business users will leverage embedded BI functionality that is an integral part of a larger application or package,” wrote Eckerson. “Users will no longer shift software contexts when moving from operational processes to analytical ones.”
