The definition of analytics has changed
When people talk about business analytics, they’re usually talking about two things: reports and dashboards. But reports and dashboards are yesterday’s way of making decisions. Today’s world demands more than just visualizations and dashboards. It demands the right people have the right insights, but only when they need them. It demands the ability to be dynamic and flexible and the ability to take actions from anywhere. That’s why businesses need more than just analytics, they need analytic apps, and in particular, no or low code embedded analytic apps.
Embedded analytics apps are built around the same charts, reports, metrics and dashboards you already know, only now they’re wrapped inside a modern application framework that offers powerful features like automation and information distribution, along with data collection and security.
But even analytic apps are not enough for today’s business world if they require a fleet of developers and tons of time and money to develop and maintain. That’s why Qrvey has pioneered the no-code embedded analytics app, complete analytic solutions that can be built and maintained by average business users.
What do you get with a no/low-code embedded analytics app?
- Because it’s an application, making updates and changes is no longer a complicated affair. Visualizations can be added, layouts can be changed and settings can be updated, all in an easy-to-use, visual interface. There’s simply no easier way to build and maintain analytics than within an application that can be instantly updated with no coding, just a few clicks.
- The second benefit is distribution. Your application, as well as all of its components, all have their own URL, which means they can be easily distributed via email, on the web, on mobile devices, or they can even be embedded within the applications your company is already using. No longer will users have to go their analytics, their analytics can come directly to them. Speaking of users, as an app, you now have the ability to let users subscribe to the content that matters to them and unsubscribe from the analytics that doesn’t. Self service capabilities makes managing content distribution easier than ever before.
- The third major benefit is automation. Analytic apps can be completely automated to collect new data, monitor key metrics and send alerts only when the data warrants such actions. With static reports and traditional BI tools, these features are simply not possible.
- The final benefit is security. Every analytics application can be built with both user- and data-level security built right in, which means you never need to worry about sensitive information getting into the wrong hands.
So the next time you think about analytics, think about everything a no or low-code embedded analytics application can provide.
