When choosing an embedded analytics solution to partner with, one of the best ways to determine whether a given solution provider is worth your time and money is to find out how satisfied its current customers are. Luckily, today there are many online platforms where users can share their feedback about the product that they’re using, making it easier for other people to make up their minds.
In the software space, G2, a peer-to-peer review site, is the largest and most trusted software marketplace, helping 60 million people every year make smarter software decisions based on authentic user ratings and social data. To help users even further, G2 creates yearly grid reports based on thousands of verified reviews and data from actual users, so you can compare multiple vendors based on real feedback.
As per G2’s official website, the G2 category Grid® Reports compare products in a given category based on satisfaction and market presence scores. In this whitepaper, we are going to focus on G2’s latest report on Embedded Analytics Intelligence vendors – the category in which our product Reveal has been rated as one of the leading embedded analytics products on the market.
Intro to G2 Report
The Grid® Report for Embedded Analytics Intelligence is a seasonal comparison report by the largest and most trustful software marketplace G2. The report compares top embedded analytics intelligence vendors based on feedback and reviews from real software users. That makes the report a highly trusted source of information as all the ratings and satisfaction scores are established thanks to those software vendors’ users’ experience.
G2 Grid® Report for Embedded Business Intelligence is entirely based on data sourced from product reviews shared on the G2 platform by its users, as well as on data collected from online sources and social networks.
The goal of the report is to provide business owners, product managers, CTOs, and company decision-makers with an objective guide on how different vendors are performing and help them make the best possible investment decision. Also, for vendors, investors and analysts the G2 report provides a clear understanding of their competitors and benchmarks for market trend analysis.

Reveal’s Highest-Rating Features
Dashboards (12% above average)
Dashboards are a major feature in data analytics and business intelligence and one of the most crucial things that you need to consider when choosing an embedded analytics vendor. Dashboards aggregate data from multiple data sources, so you can easily see and compare important insights together in one view.
Reveal is a self-service, business intelligence SDK that enables you to visualize your significant business metrics, like marketing performance, monitoring operational trends, visualizing KPIs, and optimizing customer portfolios, in one centralized location.
To provide the best user experience when it comes to embedding analytics into your existing applications, the most important thing is to have the ability to customize your dashboards, so they perfectly match your app’s look and feel.
For our team this is paramount and that’s why we are giving our users full control over the Reveal dashboards through our SDK.
Graphs & Charts (12% above average)
To someone not trained in data analytics, a spreadsheet with hundreds of rows of numbers can seem terrifying. But if that person visualizes the same information in the form of a bar chart, map, or graph, they will immediately gain insights from those numbers.
Data visualization tools can help you identify trends and patterns, understand complex information quickly and easily, communicate a story, analyze risk, address issues and so much more.
Reveal offers a rich library of data visualization tools, so you can choose the best and most appropriate chart or graph to represent your data, extract actionable insights from it and make more intelligent business decisions. And because graphs and charts can’t stand alone no matter how powerful they are, we also provide advanced features such as data blending, dashboard linking, statistical functions, drill-down functionality, and more to help you gain deeper insights into your data.
Reporting (13% above average)
Reporting capabilities should be an integral part of any embedded analytics solution. Embedded reporting tools can help you easily consolidate data from multiple large data sets and data sources and get a 360-degree view of your business and/or specific areas of it. This decreases the time users typically spend analyzing different data sets, accelerates your time to insights, and significantly improves workflow productivity.
To clarify so that there is no confusion; reporting and dashboards might seem the same thing, but they are not, and you should look for both robust reporting and dashboard capabilities when investing in a solution. A report is a more detailed collection of charts, graphs, tables, etc., and it is used for more detailed and comprehensive data analysis, while dashboards are used for monitoring how different aspects of the business are performing. Both, however, should always go together as reports can provide a more detailed view of the insights presented in a dashboard.
We know that all of your users are different, that each one has its own unique case for using analytics and a different level of sophistication when it comes to working with data. That’s why we provide our users with self-service reporting capabilities. We let users easily create informative reports and quickly export them to Excel and PowerPoint.
Self-service features are the tools and processes that empower end-users to analyze large amounts of data, build custom dashboards, and create reports independently. This is very important for us as one of our main goals is to help our customers cultivate a data-driven culture for their businesses. With self-service capabilities, even users that have no data knowledge or experience can serve their own data needs instead of waiting for ITs or BI experts to do it for them and act on their findings at the point of impact. It brings effortlessness and effectiveness to the decision-making process and makes the decisions better, smarter, and most importantly data-driven.
Ease of Use (9.0 compared to the industry average of 8.6)
In the ease of use segment of the satisfaction score, Reveal is one of the highest-rated solutions. Providing a superior user experience is one of our top priorities and as such, we are constantly working in that direction.
We believe that the benefits of embedded analytics and BI must be available to and easily accessed by anyone inside an organization, regardless of their levels of data experience and skills. That is part of the reason why we build our product as a self-service solution, so we can make data more accessible to anyone that needs it.
Part of the self-service features that we are offering to ease the analytical experience for our users include an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, seamless connectivity with a variety of different data sources, and predefined dashboard templates.
Quality of Support (9.6 compared to the industry average of 8.8)
When choosing the right embedded analytics vendor to partner with, it’s important to understand that it is not just about technology; it’s also about finding high-level, quality, and experienced support that can ensure your success.
For that reason, we are extremely happy to be rated so highly. Our community support is available to answer any questions 24/7. We also put in a lot of work to make our documentation and FAQs as helpful as possible and are very honored to find out what our customers appreciate this that much.
Ease of Setup
When it comes to integrating analytics into your existing application it is essential that the software flows seamlessly. It shouldn’t add any additional weight and complexity. To be able to flow seamlessly, it needs to be built from the ground up with embed in mind first, just like Reveal is. With an architecture that provides flexibility and no added requirements, with Reveal, you can quickly integrate analytics into your code, keeping up with customer demand.
