Founded out of Belgium in 2015,Cumul io operates in a comparable area to reputable BI incumbents such as Tableau as well as Looker, however establishes itself apart with a concentrate on bringing embedded analytics to SaaS applications especially.
Embedded analytics, for the unaware, is where companies use information coverage as well as visualizations straight inside their software program, instead of needing to utilize a different, standalone BI application– this brings comfort as well as simpleness to expanding companies that prefer to concentrate their sources on their core proficiencies.
