In the past, developers and commercial software development teams built products entirely from scratch using in-house resources. Today, this is no longer true. In the world of BI (business intelligence), many application development teams now understand the advantages of embedding intelligence rather than building interactive reports, dashboards, ad hoc query and visual discovery tools from scratch. Many now look to buy and embed rather than build and maintain application functionality. Nonetheless, it still takes a lot of time and effort to embed a BI tool.
This whitepaper explores the aspects of embedded intelligence, the benefits of embedding as well as important points to consider in the process.
