Analytics has become mainstream, and TDWI research indicates that the vast majority of organizations have adopted technologies such as dashboards and visual analytics. However, as organizations mature along their analytics journey, they are looking to embed their analytics into devices, applications, and systems. Embedding analytics layers analytics into another application or process and brings the results of analysis to the decision maker through applications that run the business. The result is opening up analytics to more users and making analytics relevant, actionable, and more valuable.
Any organization that wants to improve its offerings can embed analytics into portals, applications, or websites, including enterprises, ISVs, and OEMs. So, what do you need to know about embedding analytics into applications? Join us for a lively panel of experts, including industry thought leader Wayne Eckerson, leader in the visual analytics market Qlik, and Fern Halper from TDWI, to discuss best practices around embedding analytics.
