Dresner Advisory Services Publishes 2017 Embedded Business Intelligence Market Study
NASHUA, N.H., Nov. 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dresner Advisory Services today published the 2017 Embedded Business Intelligence Market Study, part of the Wisdom of Crowds® series of research. The 5th annual Embedded Business Intelligence report focuses on the requirement to make business intelligence (BI) capabilities pervasive by including them as part of other applications.
In the 2017 report, users rank embedded BI technology 12th out of 33 business intelligence topics and technologies currently under study, behind the most mainstream BI practices such as reporting and dashboards but ahead of other widely discussed initiatives including cloud and big data. More than half the respondents already use embedded BI, sharply up year over year.
“In the five years we have been researching embedded BI, its overall importance has markedly increased, either in perceived measures or actual usage,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “We characterize adoption of embedded BI as strong, and believe we will see continued high demand for embedding BI / analytics capabilities. This is very much in line with our belief in an ‘information democracy’ – the idea that all users need access to timely and relevant insights to support their roles within (and beyond) the organization.”
