Organizations need the ability to empower every employee to make real-time, data-driven decisions. Business users need insight at the point of decision to create value.
To empower business users requires giving them access to the data they need when they need it. We can’t forget to give them the means to act on it. Software companies that embed self-service BI and analytics into core business application workflows let end users see data in real time for analysis. This enables them to make better business decisions through using the application’s analytics. That’s giving them insight at the point of decision.

For the companies licensing their software, getting embedded BI sets up a path to greater growth and success. Putting analytics into the workflow of the application used every day speeds its adoption. That’s because embedding brings more satisfaction by keeping it within the daily workflow. It increases the number of application users who make use of the embedded BI platform. User adoption and engagement with the analytics solution helps create a data-driven organization. Adopting this perspective promises more growth as the insight promotes better decisions
When a company empowers business end users with embedded self-service BI, another benefit results. This lightens the workload for software companies’ developers and the rest of IT. They won’t spend their days creating report after report for end users.
But it won’t be enough to supply users with a simple view-only report. To supply insight at the point of decision, those users need much more. Companies need to enable them to generate new reports, dashboards and visualizations. The answers that one report provides will raise more questions. Users can only answer those new questions if they can create their own reports and dashboards. An added benefit is freeing your developers to work on your application’s features. Successful organizations enable personalization of analytics for users and roles within the organization.
Business user empowerment should be your goal. Accomplishing this requires you to provide them with the data they need when they need it, and the means to act on it.
