Users of today’s modern business intelligence (BI), big data, and other business software applications expect their applications to feature embedded analytics, which include data visualization capabilities. In fact, embedded BI is gaining favor across many uses cases compared with standalone BI. Plus, an embedded analytics capability can also help organizations monetize their data assets and develop new revenue streams.
The Zoomdata Developer Zone provides developers with the integration tools they need to insert charts and data in your web applications, create custom charts, administer Zoomdata with REST APIs, build custom connectors, and more. With Zoomdata, embedded analytics can be delivered quickly and economically.
Zoomdata contains built-in configuration screens that make it easy to white label or re-brand the default analytics user interface to conform to a specific look and feel. Elements that can be customized include:
This is the quickest and easiest way to package Zoomdata functionality as the data analytics and embedded dashboard capability of your BI platform. Zoomdata runs as a separate, stand-alone application, but is consistent in appearance through adopting common user interface elements.
This is the most popular integration approach for incorporating Zoomdata into business applications. Zoomdata visualizations and dashboards run within Inline Frames (iFrames) embedded within the web user interface of the parent application such as a BI tool. An iFrame is an HTML document embedded inside another HTML document on a website or web application.
Runtime parameters can be passed from the parent application into the Zoomdata content. For example parameters for filtering or sorting data within Zoomdata.
This approach which delivers a unified look and feel, is easy to maintain, and can be achieved without coding. End users need not be aware that the visual and analytics components of the application are provided by Zoomdata, instead of the parent application.
The Zoomdata Software Development Kit (SDK) and visualization API help software developers extend Zoomdata's capabilities and put them into custom and third-party applications.
By using the Zoomdata SDK and APIs to embed Zoomdata into your application, you can achieve a completely seamless integration where the boundaries between the parent application and Zoomdata are not apparent.
In some cases organizations may not want to use Zoomdata to immediately visualize data, but instead use it as a high-performance data engine. Zoomdata has unmatched performance when accessing big and fast data sources, using unique technologies such as micro-query based Data Sharpening.
