Our take on Izenda:A platform purpose-built for embedded analytics that provides the flexibility and power product teams require”

Overview

Building a data product can be a real nightmare for a product leader. 

An actual nightmare as in, it can keep you up at night working about all of the things that can go wrong.

  1. You want a “toolkit” to build customized analytics and to (theoretically) save costs. You're willing to maintain the platform entirely in-house.
  2. You want some flexibility but will accept (generally) lower customization capabilities to have benefits of a “fully-baked” platform (rather than a toolkit of parts)
  3. You have insufficient development or technical resources and want a fully-managed analytic system. In this scenario, you need a vendor that will do it all for you.
