2023 was a big year for developers, with technology taking huge leaps forward in new and exciting areas like AI. With this new unlocked potential, advanced analytics jumped back to the top of the capability wish list for many technology buyers. With customers now expecting more than ever from analytics, many development teams invested in embedded analytics solutions to reduce the workload and time to value for their applications. Here are some of the top trends from last year in embedded analytics:

  • Artificial Intelligence: AI and embedded analytics are synergistic technologies that, when combined, offer powerful capabilities for data-driven decision-making within applications. The key aspects of their relationship that trended over the last year included predictive analytics and integration with machine learning.
  • Scalability: Think of growing data volume and performance here. As data grew in 2023, embedded analytics solutions scaled seamlessly to maintain performance, ensuring that analytical processes remain responsive and timely.
  • More Intuitive Advanced Functionality: We’re talking user-friendly here. More intuitive advanced functionality in embedded analytics is seen with the integration of sophisticated features within applications that not only provide advanced analytical capabilities but also prioritize intuitive experiences for users.
  • Accessibility to Data: In 2023, we saw the ease with which users can retrieve and interact with relevant information within applications increase. The goal of accessibility within embedded analytics is to make information accessible to everyone and there were plenty of results to be seen, enough to make it a trend-setter in the analytics world.
  • Data Security: Again in 2023, we saw that ensuring data security in embedded analytics is crucial to protecting sensitive information and maintaining the trust of users. Secure data transmissions and authentication mechanisms both played key roles in the security real for embedded analytics.

With Launch, Logi Symphony Reaches for New Heights

In October, insightsoftware launched its industry-leading embedded BI and analytics solution, Logi Symphony. Logi Symphony is an embedded BI and analytics solution for any web-based application. It allows organizations to integrate business-level AI, interactive data visualizations, dashboards, and reports, thereby enriching the value and engagement of every application.

The reason behind its creation is that independent software vendors (ISVs) like you often need to offer reporting capabilities and data visualizations embedded directly within applications that you develop and maintain. The process is complex and requires a high degree of customization and extensive experience to prep data for analysis. Factoring in that recent research indicates that more than 35% of companies consider data preparation crucial, though 97% of gathered data is then left unused, Logi Symphony saw the need to provide seamless integration, flexible customization, and composability with a rich user experience.

Logi Symphony enables ISVs and enterprise application teams to launch products faster, drive end-user data-driven decision intelligence, improve customer retention and engagement with in-app contextual analytics, and monetize data through self-service analytics. Organizations can better monetize data resources while empowering users to make more informed decisions, with highly customizable managed dashboards, reports, and visual data discovery content available directly within applications.

Along its journey to the October launch, Logi Symphony experienced several updates to provide it with the best features of previously acquired products into a single self-service BI solution.
