Jaspersoft, maker of the world’s most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that now over 100,000 applications currently embed Jaspersoft technology, supporting its assertion that the adoption of embedded BI solutions is on the rise. This trend is recognized by IDC from data collected since 1997 showing the overall embedded BI market reaching $2 billion dollars by the end of this year. According to IDC research, organizations of all sizes indicate that the largest percent of BI users have access to such functionality through its embedding in other applications.
Standalone BI adoption. ranging between 20-30% for most organizations. is limited by the number of so-called knowledge workers. Embedded BI is seen as the key driver for broader use within organizations. When reports and analytic views are contextual and easy to use, the benefits to decision-making increase. BI within existing applications is expanding as software companies and SaaS based applications use application data to enable better insight and engagement for their customers. The explosion of information and data-driven applications has fueled the growth of embedded BI, driving the demand for a more flexible, easy to use, and affordable BI solution.
“It’s not surprising to see embedded BI reach this market size. Access to relevant data in real-time has become a key advantage and differentiator for operational applications and decision-making,” says Dan Vesset, Program VP of Business Analytics for IDC. “When analytics are presented within the context of a user’s workspace, the use of that information increases, ultimately improving decision making, which is why embedded reporting and analytics is a key driver for pervasive BI to become a reality.”
From ERP and CRM to social and mobile data requirements, production applications are powering enterprise information systems and becoming increasingly more powerful with the ability to analyze data and extract insight instantly. By embedding Jaspersoft BI into these data-driven applications, companies are gaining a deeper understanding about transactional and other business critical data, which allows for smarter decision-making and process improvements throughout the enterprise.
Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft, commented,“Any software system or application that gathers or creates data has the ability to expose that data in analytic views. Jaspersoft is ideally suited to help companies analyze data to uncover patterns and gain new perspectives, enabling them to continually harness information in ways that create breakthrough ideas.”
