Logi Analytics At A Glance

Good: Available for all company sizes, analytics can be embedded into existing applications, ability to customize CSS and JavaScript to reports.
Bad: Not suitable for non-SQL users, lacks ability to automatically set attirbutes in a report, possibility of running into obscure issues.
Bottom Line: For companies that are either skeptical of BI and are seeking immediate ROI, or for others that need to implement a system immediately, LogiAnalytics offers a swift and affordable solution.

Product Overview

Logi Analytics provides an economically feasible, efficient way for any size company – from small to medium sized businesses with limited technological capability, to the largest corporations – the ability to deliver business intelligence insights.

Aside from its speed and ease of use, Logi touts their “elemental design” approach to BI, a way to deliver reports and dashboards to any platform without any coding. Not having to deal with coding frees up valuable time and resources for end-users.

Completely interactive mobile applications can be created easily by users. They are completely based on the web and can be accessed from any platform. Users have the option to deploy an application to multiple mobile platforms.

Logi also offers embedded analytics, which allows users to embed dashboards, analytics, and reporting into existing applications. This service is far easier, quicker, and cheaper than replacing the legacy system.

The platform allows for ease of integration with any security system, and provides IT with access controls so that employees have access to data based on their role.

Finally, the vendor does not require any per-user fees, which can be a significant cost for many companies. This allows businesses the freedom to scale their tool larger without increasing their cost.

Features

Logi Analytics includes several notable features, some of which are listed below. One feature which sticks out with Logi is its ability to be customized, on many levels.

Shortcomings

Logi is a unique tool, and different in many ways from other business intelligence solutions. Because of this there is not as much of an open community to discuss, analyze, and trouble-shoot issues with the product as they arise. Frequent users of the software may run into obscure problems and will need a community to address these issues.

Some users have noted that if you are not an expert SQL user, then you will have difficulty using Logi effectively.

While Logi Analytics offers users a lot of freedom, it can also be time consuming to manually set attributes or to perform manual hacks on every single element in a report.

Logi Analytics Unable to Resolve Security Update

on 2017-11-08 14:48:47

While the product Logi Info has more horsepower than we needed and costs more than we should have spent to develop reports, once it's set it works well. The huge downside for us and the reason we had to leave Logi is that the support team was unable to resolve a security requirement enforced from our data source (Salesforce - TLS 1.1 encryption). The support team spent more than 2 months to try and resolve and was unable to resolve during that time. We had bought into the product and was able to develop what we needed with the help of one of their premier partners, dbSeer. However looking back, the costs were too much and the development method employed may have been the reason we were unable to meet what should have been a simple security requirement. Unfortunately we lost out in a big way by terminating our relationship in advance of the contract expiration and lost out on what to us is a large sum of money. On top of that Logi support required us to purchase additional software in hopes to remedy the situation but it didn’t and we were unable to get a refund. All said and done, Logi refused to refund the amounts we believed through their failures was due to us. So all in all were not happy that we had to quickly scramble to get another solution in place before the security requirement expired. The only good side is that Salesforce gave us multiple grace periods which was so helpful so we could find something else that would work for us. A small non-profit that we are probably made a bad decision in the first place partnering with Logi. Partly our fault but when it came to being there for us and taking responsibility Logi left us in the cold.
