Why Modern ISVs are Choosing Power BI Embedded

In a world where data is more accessible than ever, people are looking for ways to make sense of it. But amassing mountains of digital information isn’t much use unless organisations can make sense of it. That’s where business intelligence software comes in.

Today, businesses use analytical and business intelligence (BI) capabilities in their daily workflows to provide performance and competitor benchmarks to make the organisation run smoother and more efficiently. It is quite evident that modern businesses’ success heavily relies on data insights that embedded analytics software can provide them with.

In today’s highly competitive business environment, finding the right embedded analytics solution for your business needs is difficult. To help you narrow your options and come to a decision, we are taking a closer look at one of the most popular embedded analytics platforms on the market – Power BI Embedded. 

What is Power BI Embedded?

Microsoft Power BI is a cloud-based BI and analytics service that is an umbrella term and includes:

  • A Windows desktop application (Power BI Desktop).
  • An online SaaS service (Power BI Service).
  • A mobile app.
  • An embedded platform.

A Microsoft Azure service, Power BI Embedded allows independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers to embed Power BI’s analytics capabilities and functionalities into their own existing applications. The Power BI Embedded solution empowers ISVs to share meaningful dashboards and reports with their customers or employees wherever it makes the most sense for these users to consume data. There are more benefits than this for growing ISVs.

Benefits of Power BI Embedded for ISVs

As an ISV, you are always looking for ways to get to market faster, create differentiated data products and offers, and impress customers to create lifelong fans. Power BI Embedded can help you achieve all of those goals and more. Let’s take a look at some of the top benefits of Power BI Embedded.

Get to market faster.

One of the biggest benefits of Power BI Embedded is that it enables you to get to market faster. With Power BI Embedded, you can quickly and easily embed interactive reports and dashboards into your application without having to worry about managing infrastructure or hosting costs. This means you can focus on developing your application and bringing it to market more quickly.

Create differentiated data products and offers.

With Power BI Embedded, you can create differentiated data products and offers. By embedding interactive reports and dashboards into your application, you can give your users insights into their data that they have never had before. When you give them insights into their data that they never had before, they will be impressed with your application and want to use it again and again. This will not only lead to repeating business but also referrals from happy customers.

Enhance the User Experience.

ISVs need to be able to offer their customers a way to visualise and interact with data to make better decisions. Power BI Embedded provides ISVs with the ability to do just that. Not only that, but Power BI Embedded is also easy to use and has a low learning curve. Power BI Embedded integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft products and services, making it a natural choice for ISVs already using other Microsoft products and services. 

Create new revenue streams.

With Power BI Embedded, you can also create new revenue streams for your business. By embedding Power BI into your application, you can offer premium features and services to your users that they can pay for on a monthly or annual basis. This will increase your revenue and help you scale your business more quickly. 

Automation and customisation reduces the demand on developer resources.

As an ISV, developer time is one of your most valuable resources. Embedded the perfect fit for rapidly growing ISVs as they can be customised and managed. The customer views visualisations within your native application. With branding customisation available out of the box, the customer will not feel as if they have left your application environment when viewing Power BI features.

Grow your business backed by Microsoft Azure.

ISVs can benefit from Microsoft’s extensive investment and research into powerful analytical services. As new capabilities are released, the ISV continues to benefit as Power BI, and the ISV grow together. They can be confident that their customers are viewing certified, secure and best-in-class data visualisations. ISVs can also benefit from Microsoft Azure’s cloud capabilities as Power BI visualisations can be accessed globally across devices with the same security and accuracy.

Costs start low and scale with ISV growth.

ISVs often experience rapid growth, which Power BI Embedded accommodates. The service is set at a low price which scales up with your business needs. This is similar to Azure itself which utilises the cloud to scale. You can also manage your costs and pause your Power BI Embedded Service as you need. As your customer base grows, so can your Power BI Embedded service.

It enables you to get to market faster, creates differentiated data products and offers, impresses customers, and creates lifelong fans.
