Embedded analytics is the technology designed to make data analysis and business intelligence more accessible by all kinds of application or user.[1]

Definition[edit]

According to Gartner analysts Kurt Schlegel, traditional business intelligence were suffering in 2008 a lack of integration between the data and the business users.[2] This technology intention is to be more pervasive by real-time autonomy and self-service of data visualization or customization, meanwhile decision makers, business users or even customers are doing their own daily workflow and tasks.

History[edit]

First mentions of the concept were made by Howard Dresner, consultant, author, former Gartner analyst and inventor of the term "business intelligence".[3] Consolidation of business intelligence "doesn't mean the BI market has reached maturity" [4] said Howard Dresner while he was working for Hyperion Solutions, a company that Oracle bought in 2007. Oracle started then to use the term "embedded analytics" at their press release for Oracle Rapid Planning on 2009.[5] Gartner Group, a company for which Howard Dresner has been working, finally added the term to their IT Glossary on November 5, 2012. [6] In 2014, Dresner Advisory Services published "Embedded Business Intelligence Market Study" as part of the Wisdom of Crowds Series of Research, including 24 vendors.[7]
