What do you like best?

Logi Info has been a great tool for us to quickly move into the real of analytics and dashboarding. Prior to Logi we spent a lot of time diving into visualization libraries and worrying about little things in HTML/CSS/JS.

Logi Info has allowed us to move past that stage quickly and get us to focus on the metrics we are trying to create and accomplish. Turn around time for developing visualizations are very quick and deployment is straightforward.

Most importantly, I have a small team (me and another developer) and this product has allowed us to be very successful in developing visualizations quickly, which has led to more and more adoption of our other business units.

Logi support has been wonderful. They are very responsive and very helpful.

What do you dislike?

The software is constantly doing a better job, but it is somewhat difficult to deal with non-traditional or newer HTML tags (e.g. nav). There are ways to add straight HTML/CSS and java scripts in the page, but you do lose out on using other features of more developed Logi Info page elements.

Some handling of the data and possible logic that you need is done at what feels like a different level from what I'm used to. I come from a Ruby on Rails background, so very heavy in MVC. Numerous solutions from Logi support had logic move from a "view" layer back to the "data" layer. It's not bad, just a different way of thinking you need when working with Logi Info.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Logi is pushing hard with embedded analytics as well as self service analytics - both which are wonderful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to develop and push the use of more data in our service lines. In other words - quicker and more transparent access to data for all stake holders from directors to direct service workers.

We have seen more and more adoption of additional metrics through out or different business units, which is fantastic.

What do you like best?

After comparing over 50 different reporting/analytics tools, Logi was the clear winner for both features and pricing. We are able to use our own SVN code management and share developer content across multiple divisions with granular control over content publication, embedding, and styling. Rather than having to create new processes to incorporate our workflow into Logi, we were able to easily incorporate the rich toolset of Logi into our existing processes. This made for an efficient, secure, and even familiar implementation; and provides us with a scalable, cross-divisional solution set presented via Logi's web engine.

What do you dislike?

Logi provides such a vast set of tools that it would be impossible for them to create a 'Quick Start Guide'. Accordingly, there is a small learning curve in the development process. It is as if Logi has given me a claw hammer, a ball peen hammer, a brick hammer, a framing hammer, a drywall hammer, and an electrician's hammer. They cannot know which hammer is best for my use case so I have to run through some trial and error. What they offer to offset this learning curve is a rich online help environment complete with full documentation, Sample Applications and a User Forum.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Our internal implementation team was not made up of Developers and Computer Scientists. Due to Logi's simple implementation and development process, we took a team of technical specialists and implemented to production in only a few months. Beyond that, the Logi Info tool has allowed us to reduce over overall costs by turning technically-talented non-developers into full-blown developers within Logi. The fact that I don't have learn anything about javascript, PHP, etc. in order to create the content I need in Logi has made this tool a boon to our teams, rewarding innovation and providing avenues for the curious among our teams to create legitimate analytics content.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our staff-facing web environment was presenting data from disparate RDBMSs across a variety of web pages in different locations using different styling... it was the wild west in our web presentation. Logi Info has allowed us to pull in data from all of our systems (MS SQL, Maria, MySQL, spreadsheets, MS Access, etc.) and combine the results into a centralized, consistently-styled web space with the added bonus of combining data from different RDBMSs into a single report (e.g. legacy customer data mixed with new customer data to allow a consistent view of the customer's issues, updates, progress over time in spite of transitioning to a new system/RDBMS). Logi has also allowed us to create fully automated security (which was lacking in previous methods/tools) on our web pages so that we can create a single report which presents three different ways depending upon the users' identified level of access. This has greatly reduced our overhead from where used to manage manual security schemes and create redundant content in order to maintain that security at the presentation level.

What do you like best?

Logi Info is easy to use and provides an easy, straight-forward way to get something up and running quickly. It's drag/drop interface and variety of controls and display models provide great flexibility in how your data is presented. Shared elements, style sheets, and scripting provide an easy way to ensure consistency across large sets of reports. Built-in exporting to a variety of target formats (we use Excel and PDF) make providing these as simple as adding a button/action to the report. While we don't use all the bells and whistles, the functionality we do use has been solid and performed well for many years.

What do you dislike?

In a highly competitive market space, Logi has historically had to add new functionality rapidly over the years. For a time, this challenged their ability to provide as high a quality product as I suspect they wanted to and their customers needed. While this has improved dramatically over the last 3 or 4 years, this can still be a challenge - as a result, we normally stick with a given release for several years vs. aggressively upgrading. As noted, our requirements have been fairly straight forward so not always being on the latest and greatest has not proved to be problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cherwell Asset Management (CAM) is an IT asset management tool that provides visibility and analysis of IT hardware and software. For our users, THE key "feature" of the product is how the data is reported. CAM's reporting has been based on Logi Info for nearly 10 years; Logi has allowed us to develop and maintain a large set of end-user targeted reports providing visibility into not only a large set of collected data, but a wide variety of analysis on that data as well. When demoing the product, we lead with our reports. Our decision to go with Logi was based on the need for data presentation being compelling and that need hasn't changed. We've added significantly to the product over the years, and our use of Logi has given us great flexibility over how new functionality is presented.

Logi Analytics 12.5 Review

What do you like best?

Logi Analytics has proven itself as stable and quick to market product. Over the 5+ years I have used the product I can count the number of bugs attributed to Logi on one hand. Quality coupled with the ability to create great looking reports in the matter of days makes Logi a go to product.

What do you dislike?

Over the last few years Logi has started to add more products to the offering outside of the Logi Info core product. The new offerings are offered as add-ons which means I have to go find budget to get the latest and greatest. The core Logi Info product is still evolving, but not at the pace it was when I began using the product 5+ years ago.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Logi Analytics is a great fit for users in an Agile environment. Development can offer solutions in a matter of days instead of months with the larger solutions. This may not be the product for large Fortune 500 companies, but for small to mid-size businesses I think Logi is a great fit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Logi Analytics has been used in my last two roles to offer reporting to supplement core business applications. Logi Analytics has been helpful in looking at data in a way that users never thought about. The users now ask different questions about what data is captured and think about the business in a different way. It has also opened up holes and inaccuracies in the data.

Embedding dashboards and deep analytics

What do you like best?

The Logi Studio is really easy to use and makes a great companion for developers to quick build out reports, analytics and product worthy pieces.

Visualizations are very pretty, right out of the box, without much need to customize colors, size of charts, or fonts.

The recent addition of the Theme Builder has made the job of customization almost too easy.

The data modeling and meta data building and database interpreter helps speed up the more tedious tasks of mapping and working with the database.

What do you dislike?

The training session we attended at Logi headquarters was not all that helpful as a developer who had already worked his way through some of the Logi basics.

While the studio is developer friendly, and we initially wanted senior developers to step away from major reporting building and push that task to our junior developers. The Studio can be a daunting beast to work through when you're not a seasoned developers.

We've always struggled with the idea of drill downs, as we have come from a home grown solution of reporting via tables. Creating proper drill downs between reports and data can be a bit of a chore.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We evaluated a number of embedded solutions when we first looked at expanding our product with embedded analytics. Out of all the solutions we looked at, Logi was by far the best embedded product we could find. If you have a web software you want to expand with reporting and analytics, take a good look at Logi.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We sell software to higher education institutions that focus on faculty productivity. Having analytics and reports at the ready, gives those schools the ability to make decisions quickly.

What do you like best?

The ability to rapidly develop not just analytic reports but actual web applications that directly interface with my databases. The interface is quite easy to understand without having to know HTML or other web languages. Yet it will also allow the use of java script and HTML if you so desire. There are useful wizards and templates that make the initial development for a newbie easy to do right out of the box. Yet with some learning you can create applications that would take some greater time developing if you wrote them from scratch.

What do you dislike?

If there is anything I dislike it would be the learning curve. BUT it is worth the learn to increase productivity. I am still finding new ways to improve my web pages and analytics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stick with it till it clicks! Some problems may seem like they can't be done in Logi Analytics but I have found that with some creativity it can be done. Make sure you understand SQL well and know when to use Logi instead of SQL.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Customizable analytics for radiology practices across the nation.

What do you like best?

1) Ease of usage.

2) Ability to develop reports within less time and also the UI options.

3) Page rendering as HTML which gives ability to troubleshoot.

4) Detailed debugging options

5) Integration option with .NET and Java frameworks using iframes.

6) Builtin database connectivity frameworks and support for ODBC, SQL , SYBASE etc which will help end users to chose anything they want.

What do you dislike?

1) Performance issues when it comes to larger datasets.

2) Reports take a while to load even when the SQL queries are best tuned.

3) Product doesn't go latest javascript libraries

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider the size and amount of data that LOGI Reports will generate. If there is too much data and if you use too many controls , it will result in poor performance of reports.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reports Generation. Benefits i found is that i can quickly generate reports and write built in SQL queries to pull data. Availability of number of web controls gives us an option to come up with best design possibe
