Ultimate Guide to Embedded Analytics

Keys to Product Selection and Implementation

Research report written by Wayne W. Eckerson and Kevin M. Smith

Embedding a chart or dashboard into an application does not guarantee that people will use it or gain value from it. Organizations need a methodology for ensuring their investments in embedded analytics pay off. And before they leap into building analytics with in-house developers, they need to understand the trade-offs and capabilities of commercial analytics products.

This report is a comprehensive guide to succeeding with embedded analytics. It walks readers through:

  • defining an embedded analytics project
  • selecting an embedded product
  • building and sustaining the application
  • types of embedding
  • what to look for in commercial analytics products
  • packaging and pricing embedded analytics capabilities, which is of particular interest to commercial software vendors
