Today businesses are generating mountains of data and not making any sense of data misses the opportunity of cracking the code to valuable insights and gaining a competitive edge. To stay ahead in the game and to relish operational efficiencies, integration with data-driven tools can help turn raw data into actionable insights and additionally help to stand out from the competition.  

This is where Business Intelligence (BI) steps in!  

It analyses business data and offers insights that help businesses make informed and sound decisions. Various BI tools such as Tableau, Qlik, Power BI, and Looker offer a wide range of features including interactive dashboards, and data visualization, making it easier for organizations to enhance decision-making processes.   

Now imagine a scenario where you can get access to data insights through tools embedded in your existing software applications that you are already familiar with. Well, that’s possible with embedded BI solutions.   

Embedded BI is the integration of reports, dashboards, and data visualization into the existing application. Integration of embedded BI tools can turn your application and software into a powerful platform for analyzing data. 

Let’s witness some of the benefits of embedded BI and then let’s dig into its application or user cases-

  • Embedded BI boosts the productivity of employees as they don’t need to switch between applications to collect and analyze the data. Thus, there is a faster time for insights.   
  • Boosts self-service BI and businesses don’t need to depend on data experts and can work independently and draw insights.   
  • Integration of BI into existing software lowers the resistance to adoption and thus such ease of use enhances the value of the core product or application.   
  • Integrating BI directly into existing applications reduces the need for separate BI infrastructure and tools. This consolidation lowers costs associated with software licenses, maintenance, and training.   


Recognizing the benefits of embedded BI, now let’s move forward with its user cases-
