Embedded Analytics

What is Embedded Analytics?

Historically, business intelligence software allows users to get a clearer image of what’s happening in their business. Analytics goes one step further by telling customers why certain things are happening, to be able to inform future business decisions.

Pi Analytics can be embedded into your software just as easily as our business intelligence dashboards. We simply connect to data sources to show the data in the dashboards, and from there the analytics model can be applied over these data sets.

Our Embedded Analytics offering can be broken down into four main sections:

Descriptive = What is happening?
Diagnostic = Why is it happening?
Predictive = What is likely to happen?
Prescriptive = What do I need to do?

Embedded Analytics with Panintelligence

Pi Analytics was designed as a self-service tool that empowers customers to become their own data scientists. When you embed our analytics product into your software, you’re adding a real level of differentiation that will serve to set you apart from your competitors.

Pi Analytics

Our fully browser-based analytical tool was first demonstrated at the Exact Hackathon, where we integrated it with Exact, to predict invoices that will go bad. It achieves this by first spotting characteristics and trends in historic data, and then by applying this logic to new data.

Pi Analytics allows you to quickly build a table containing the data you require. This data set will include the outcome, (what we want to measure); an example would be an indicator on the historic invoices which states whether the payment was made.

The data set also includes the characteristics, which is anything that influences the outcome. This could be customer type, previous payments, or customer sector, for example. The power behind Pi Analytics is that you can test as many outcomes and characteristics against each other very quickly.

How does Embedded Analytics work?

We use R as our statistical modelling tool. The user builds a table (a data frame in R), and we then pass the frame to R.

We ask R to build a regression model (decision tree) to predict outcomes using the fields we have supplied. R passes back the calculated decision tree, which we can then show in the dashboard.

Pi Analytics can supply the user with insights that were previously unavailable and likely unknown.

To give a real-world example of our analytical capabilities, in the education sector, it could be used to predict which students are most likely to show up late. In the healthcare sector, it could tell the user which people are likely to not attend their medical appointments. And in finance, it could predict which transactions are most likely to be fraudulent.

With Pi Analytics, the steep learning curve of using R has been removed, and the barrier to using these tools has been broken down. Powerful insights can be gained by every user in the business; they can build data frames graphically without using code, giving them a place to display decision trees without having to load them individually.

Why embed Analytics?

Embedded analytics for business intelligence has gone from being a ‘nice to have’ feature, to a ‘must have’, as customers seek to do more with their data.

Opting to develop an analytics solution in-house means that your developers are no longer solely focused on the core product. Also consider how the solution would need updating and maintaining in the future, potentially leading you to hire a dedicated developer, or a small team.

Embedding our analytics solution for big data allows you to benefit from a platform that is fully GDPR-compliant, mobile-friendly, and enables users to connect to multiple data sources to show one view of the truth.

With Pi Analytics, you can rapidly launch a major product enhancement to offer your customers a marketing-leading business intelligence solution that will drive new revenues, wow audiences, and improve reporting.


Should you decide to embed Panintelligence, you have the option of selling our easy-to-use analytics engine branded as Panintelligence, or white-labelled with your own branding.

White-labelling goes further than just changing logos, as you can design your dashboards with your company’s colours to look on-brand. This can easily be done through the user interface, with no coding required.

White-labelling Pi Analytics allows you to fully integrate our software with your own, allowing it to look completely native. This strengthens your proposition when selling it either on its own or combined with your other products.

“We chose Panintelligence not only because they have a market-leading and intuitive solution, but because they’ve also repeatedly demonstrated themselves to be a true partner to Protean.”

Embedded Analytics FAQs

Should you have any questions around our embedded analytics product, you’re able to find answers below. If we didn’t manage to answer your query here, you can get in touch with us to ask anything on your mind.

How much data do you need?

Analytical data models can be applied to data sets of any size. However, the more data you can supply, the more accurate the model will be. Essentially, the models will always tell you something (usually something you didn’t know) about your data.

How easy is it to use Analytics in the dashboard?

Our big data analytics software is designed to be self-service, so it should feel intuitive to use. Creating a model is just as simple as setting up a table or a chart in our dashboard.

How is analytics different to business intelligence?

Business intelligence software brings together multiple sources of data, so they’re ready for analysis, and then provides reporting from a central viewpoint. Analytics goes a step further, to predict future outcomes of specific tasks, which can inform a decision or an action.

Are there any technical skills required?

Building your analytics models can be done in our dashboard software, all through our user interface, so there’s no coding required. The only technical bit is setting up your data sources, but we have supportive consultants here, who can do that job for you!

Empower people to become their own data scientists

Data scientists are people whose job it is to mine complex, big data sets, to interpret statistics and inform business decisions. After all, if you’re collecting data, you need to glean insights from it. As their job is very specific, there aren’t too many data scientists around, which creates a problem for businesses wishing to analyse big data.

That’s where Pi Analytics comes in. Our analytics product empowers users to become data scientists, who can champion important decision-making tasks. It automates the whole process of discovering trends in big data, and allows users to map these characteristics over new data sets.
