Yellowfin’s Embedded Analytics Maturity Model outlines the five progressive stages of development to delivering enhanced functionality and increased analytical value; from building the minimal viable product through data exports, basic reporting, standalone dashboards and reporting modules, to full scale advanced Contextual Analytics capability, with built in dashboards, sophisticated automated analysis and the inclusion of blended analytics and bi-directional workflows, with very high analytical value for users.
The white paper charts this analytical value to the end user across key software components and capabilities, as well as the concentration of analytical development effort required by the user or developer across five key stages of development, to help them to effectively plan implementation and maximise the value of data assets in the long term. It outlines a pathway for developers to enable intuitive contextual action for end users at the point of insight; driving decision making, increasing time savings and vastly improving business process and revenue making opportunities.
As the industry continues to iterate through data analytics capability, Yellowfin believes that it is only in setting a pathway to advanced Contextual Analytics capability from the outset that we can optimise the value of business intelligence, combat data complexity and enable its rapid and transformative business value.
Geoff Sheppard, VP EMEA Sales at Yellowfin, said, “Today, to overcome current adoption barriers, as an industry we must embrace advanced Contextual Analytics capability as market standard. Successful software development must start with a ‘data-first’ strategy and deliver a convenient and enhanced intuitive user experience that drives considerable business value and strategic integration.
He continued,“ Our Embedded Analytics Maturity Model outlines the essential steps product owners and software developers must take to deliver this. It is only in delivering exceptional analytic experiences and subsequent enhanced business process efficiencies that customers will start to understand the considerable transformative value that advanced analytics can unlock for modern business”.
