Infor has been named a Leader in the Nucleus Research Embedded Analytics Value Matrix 2021, recognized particularly for the usability and functionality of its Infor Birst solution.
This is the first report Nucleus Research has produced on embedded analytics. Its analysts noted: “Embedded technology has emerged from a nice-to-have niche offering to an essential capability for many ISVs and consumer-facing businesses, as business as a whole has become more data-driven, and more are looking to operationalize their data.”
For this report, the global provider of technology research and advisory services examined 15 vendor solutions in the embedded analytics market landscape, and named Infor a Leader, the highest rank. Positioning is based on the usability and functionality of each offering, informed by customer feedback. Nucleus also considers the solutions’ embedding options, ease-of-use for end consumers of analytics, ease-of-use for creator/analyst, and the breadth of the platform to support the data pipeline from end to end, along with other factors.

Infor Birst makes business intelligence and analytics easy to consume with prebuilt industry and role-specific content and metrics embedded wherever business users need information for improved decision-making with better outcomes.

Infor recently released new product updates, including the consolidation of reporting and analytics, new bi-directional embedded widgets, and an open client interface.
“We have the advantage of developing innovative embedded analytics capabilities because our customers provide us with new insights and feedback every day with Infor Birst embedded in their Infor CloudSuite business applications,” says Massimo Capoccia, Infor EVP of technology development. “We are thrilled with Nucleus’ assessment of our leadership, and continue to focus on the simplicity of the platform so any digital business can successfully monetize data and create differentiated experiences for their clients.”
