NASHUA, N.H., Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dresner Advisory Services today published the 2018 Embedded Business Intelligence Market Study, part of the Wisdom of Crowds® series of research. The 6th annual Embedded Business Intelligence report focuses on the requirement to make business intelligence (BI) capabilities pervasive by including them as part of other applications.  It examines end user trends surrounding the importance and adoption of embedded BI, architecture and feature requirements, and targeted applications.

“Across six years of study, the overall importance of embedded BI has steadily increased to an all-time high, with embedded BI very much in the mix of strategic initiatives at organizations,” said Jim Ericson, vice president and research director at Dresner Advisory Services.

According to the study, interest in embedded BI is fairly distributed by function.  Employee-facing priorities are driving its use, led by self-service for end users, improved and increased access to existing reports/analyses, and providing internal application users with in-context insight and analysis.

“We’re seeing indications that more embedded BI may be trickling down within organizations,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “As embedded BI deployments grow, we expect more downstream BI inclusion with a goal of improved decision making throughout organizations.”

Wisdom of Crowds® research is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. Users in all roles and throughout all industries contributed to provide a complete view of realities, plans, and perceptions of the market.  To purchase a copy of the 2018 Embedded Business Intelligence Market Study, visit
