Data is everywhere. Transactional data, big data, cloud data, decentralized data, governed data – you name it. With the ever-growing demand to analyze data, chances are your product or application needs to present this data for interactivity and decision-making. Application developers understand their users want to mashup centrally governed data with their own data, within a single, coherent view. But how do you embed the power of business intelligence (BI) into your existing application to work with all your data?

Join Dean Yao from JReport along with John Myers and Lyndsay Wise from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) for insights on how to leverage embedded BI, reporting, and data analysis in your application.
