Improve Business Relationships with Analytics Transparency
Integrating transparent analytics into your product doesn't just offer data; it offers a competitive edge that sets you apart from rivals.
Transparency fosters trust and turns what might have been a one-time transaction into an ongoing strategic relationship. Your customers will come to rely on the unique insights they can only get from your embedded analytics platforms. This makes your product more "sticky" — meaning it becomes so embedded in your customers' daily processes that the thought of switching to a competitor becomes daunting.
By making your platform indispensable for informed decision-making, you cement longer-term relationships, increasing customer loyalty and retention.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
The goal here is really customer-facing analytics and insights. The term “embedding” came from the most common technique to deliver customer-facing analytics.
Building live dashboards and data visualizations is most easily done in specialized tools. These tools provide the capability for embedding dashboards and visualizations into other applications–such as your product. This is important because your customers are already using your product. By putting these dashboards and visualizations directly into your product, your users can see everything self-service and real-time.
Embedding is accomplished by the capabilities of the business intelligence tool or product that you are using. Typically this is done by using iframes and secure links.
A data product describes something that delivers data analytics or insights to an end user.
For example, a dashboard that answers specific questions is a data product.
Data is a big world, and the phrase “data product” helps distinguish something intended to be customer-facing from all other technologies or data usages that might be behind the scenes.
Many business intelligence products and data visualization tools make visualizing data easy to do. The problem with this is these data visualizations are disconnected from your end customers.
Many of these tools provide a capability to securely expose data visualizations and dashboards to your end users within your own application.
This can be seamless and is typically accomplished by secure URLs and iframes. It is a technical exercise that keeps things secure and seamless for your end users.
Mobile and responsive design can be a limitation of embedded analytics. This inherently depends on the capabilities of the business intelligence product or data visualization tool you are using for the embedded analytics.
Perfect matching of aesthetics like colors, fonts, and style is not always guaranteed. This also depends on the capabilities of the tool you use to develop the data visualizations.
Adding another tool to your application stack creates an additional component to ensure is up and running.
Because of these limitations, some of our clients decide to bypass embedding altogether and instead write their own visualizations from scratch. Although technically possible, we have seen this to be a 10x-20x increase in effort and complexity compared to the simplicity of embedding.
Just as you want insights and visibility into your own business, your customers want visibility and insights from the services you provide to them.
Providing analytics to your customers differentiates your product, which makes a big difference in a competitive market.
Customer-facing insights can change your interactions from transactional to strategic, as you can answer questions beyond the initial transaction.
Embedded analytics can easily show usage and ROI to your buyers, proving the value of your service and giving your customers comfort and confirmation of their purchase.
Embedding is typically implemented using HTML iframes. Security concerns around iframes are based on a long history in the web. Specific malicious uses of iframes–not well understood by people who are not security experts–have led to a general unease about using iframes.
For example, clickjacking is a common concern but is only possible when the website owner has malicious intent.
With regard to embedded analytics, most (maybe all) business intelligence product vendors follow best practices:
- Use only trusted sources (your business intelligence vendor is a trusted source)
- Use HTTPS
- Use the sandbox attribute for origin restrictions
- Use the sandbox attribute for content restrictions
Most importantly, neither side of the iframe embed has malicious intent. Your website and the business intelligence vendor’s embedded dashboard do what they say they are going to do and are not attempting any form of cross-site scripting, phishing, or clickjacking.
