Embedded analytics – is the usage of reporting and analytic capabilities in business applications. These capabilities can be outside the application, but must be easily accessible from inside the application, without forcing users to switch between systems. The integration of a Business Intelligence (BI) platform with the application architecture will enable users to choose where in the business process the analytics should be embedded.
