The Embedded Analytics Platform Built for Rapid Development at Scale

With increasing market pressure to differentiate and create a competitive advantage, it is critical for product teams to provide data-driven insights to their end customers in addition to their standard offerings. While product teams recognize the power of insights in driving customer value, improving engagement, driving new revenue streams, and creating market differentiation, they are still challenged with implementing embedded analytics solutions that seamlessly blend into their applications, quickly and efficiently.

Developing in-house analytics or implementing rigid analytics solutions that need exponential amounts of investment as the product grows utilizes a tremendous amount of resources and time. That’s time that could instead be spent on solving core business problems. With pressing deadlines and the need to launch quickly and iteratively, product teams need short implementation times with the flexibility to make changes and additions in an agile manner without delays and cost overruns.
