An effective embedded analytics solution is much more than cool data visualizations—offering a superior, cohesive experience should be its overall objective. Any user or adaptor of embedded analytics, be it an Independent Software Vendor (ISV), Independent Business or Business Consultants, should consider various aspects, to achieve this objective.
Here are 3 key aspects to consider when designing this kind of embedded analytics experience, with examples of how Zoho Analytics handles them.
A tightly integrated embedded analytics solution should ensure that its users are intuitive participants in its workflow. Users should have a seamless experience, not just in terms of consistent branding and visual elements, but also in the ease of steps to drill-down insights.
Zoho Analytics offers a robust set of APIs to integrate visual exploration capabilities of analytics, customise look and feel to match the host application needs, support customizable action handling and much more. The APIs can also enable single sign-on authentication for a complete unified user experience.
An intuitive analytics solution helps users quickly find the answers they’re looking for. Designing such a solution is only possible by knowing how the experience looks and behave, in order to analyze and use the data available.
With this in mind, Zoho Analytics provides an easy-to-use drag and drop interface to create rich and interactive data visualizations for mining insights. Users can also ask questions in the language they speak and seek answers with Ask Zia, our AI-powered conversational analytics interface.
