Exago is a modern web-based BI and analytics solution strongly focused on the provision of interactive embedded analytics features. The solution includes features for dashboard creation, ad hoc query and formatted reporting. It was built for business users as content creators.
Exago was founded in 2006 with the aim of delivering a modern, easy-to-use, fully embeddable BI and analytics solution. The company is headquartered in the United States (Shelton, CT). Exago was founded by two experienced application software people who both had a track record of founding start-ups. The company now employs about 60 people and serves more than 150 customers. Most Exago customers are software companies who integrate the solution into their applications. This is also the reason the vendor does not host the software – it relies on the infrastructures of customers or partners for that purpose. A subscription model is deployed with pricing calculated per application.
Exago is a single-product company. In the past, complex integration needs were often met by running many embedded BI solutions, which could become technically challenging. The same applies to certain more mature BI and analytics vendors whose software has become cumbersome over time. To address this, Exago’s founders designed an interactive and business-oriented solution that could be embedded using a number of APIs (REST, .NET, SOAP).
User & Use Cases
Exago is a modern web-based solution which is heavily used in embedded scenarios, as indicated by the fact that an impressive 28 percent of employees use the software on average. The solution supports standard/enterprise reporting (performed by 85 percent of users), dashboards/scorecards (79 percent) and ad hoc queries (76 percent). This is quite broad coverage for an embedding specialist, underlining the strength of this modern platform. 42 percent of respondents plan to use the product for advanced analysis in the future. Exago targets all company sizes across all industries but in our sample 52 percent come from small companies (with less than 100 employees). The median number of users is 50, but the mean of 341 users indicates there are also some larger implementations.
