    I began developing within LogiAnalytics software in 2007, and, despite several job changes between then a now, have spent more time using this software than any other. I have also served as an administrator for nearly all of that time. In both of these capacities, I have developed everything from simple, web-based reports through dashboarding and Analytics, to building mission-critical, enterprise-level applications, as well as configuring and maintaining user-driven data exploration environments. LogiAnalytics solutions have been a pleasure to work with. Whenever I have gotten stuck, I have found that the documentation - both within the IDE and on-line - is incredibly helpful and intuitive, as have the support staff. Interestingly, when presented with a new requirement - as happened just a couple of months ago - I inevitably stumble across an element that fits the bill nicely, and that was there all along. This is a tough question. It would be nit-picking, but passing parameters from one report to another, or from one process to another, can sometimes be troubling. That said, I have never had an instance where I was not able to get the information that I needed relatively easily. My only overarching concern is that when using software that is so intuitive and that allows for such rapid deployment of pretty much anything that an organization may need, I have had to become very cognizant of users wanting features simply because they can be achieved and not necessarily because they should be achieved. Other than that, I can think of no issues. As with any software consideration, do your due diligence in order to ensure that this software is the right fit for your organization. This software has the capacity to rapidly chance an organization from a technological perspective - just make sure that the people are behind the change, at an agreed-upon pace. Throughout my time with three different organizations, I have been able to make use of LogiAnalytics software tools in order to do away with manual tasks, streamline existing processes, and provide insights into the organization that had been unknown up to that time. Even full scale applications are easy to develop and deploy, with the inevitable requirements creep able to be quickly accounted for

    Logi Info uses XML-based text-files so it is easy enough to edit and copy them. Logi Info Self-Service Reporting Module (SSRM) is more visual and thus easier for non-tech staff to use. Besides the self-service module, the rest of Logi is neither intuitive nor graphical with a heavy basis on using XML files to specify report formats and functionality. The Logi Info editor requires you to really know what you want to do in Logi already and how you would lay it out. It's not intuitive, not user-friendly, and not welcoming to exploration. It is not a product you use to explore data but to simply add visualisations into web apps - but why wouldn't you use a more conventional / superior web app environment anyway, such as (e.g.) Visual Studio / ASP.NET ? Many things you want to achieve in Logi Info require you to rely on JavaScript or CSS. Support is only available in specific northern hemisphere timezones. Only one person is allowed access to the licensing section of DevNet. Not all products are loaded into the licensing portal. The self-service module itself is an app sitting on top of Logi Info and while it is a better option for non-technical folk, it's still slow, sub-performant and doesn't offer meta-data facilities out-of-the-box for ODBC-based data sources. Be sure to consider what you are trying to achieve, and whether you want the tool to be used by BI experts or software developers. If BI experts, Logi Info is not the right tool. If software developers, it may not be the right tool, either. This said, Logi does offer other products - Logi Composer (formerly ZoomData) and Logi Report (formerly JReport) - both of which came from acquisitions. These are much closer to what you expect of a BI product, but it is unclear what Logi's roadmap is because Logi Composer, for example, is not supported on any version of Ubuntu post 2018. We use Logi Analytics for embedded reporting within custom software. However, there are so many better options.

    The powerful data dashboard building platform that enables drill through with parameters to sub-report and pop-up report, from multi-level hierarchical to data row level detail for analysis and reporting. its rapid dashboard creation wizard that can generate the most popular graphs and visuals directly from any SQL statements, and publish the reports online quickly. I especially appreciate the all-time support received from Logi Support team. The team always respond users' technical requests with solutions, suggestions, resource references and help-tips effectively and effectively. Nothing particular. But it would be nice to have more in-depth use-case application samples (the best practice) become available where more complected data reporting scenarios can be depicted precisely in details. Hope there is an easier way of isolating the new reports that is still in development stage, being deployed to production. Currently we control this only via using "Saved Dashboard", which is not very flexible to maintain. Logi Analytic is a great, powerful and user-friendly platform for dashboard development, advanced analytic and prediction analysis. We have built multiple dashboards, and advanced analytic self-services for multiple departments, subject matter functional and management teams to make data-driven decisions, The tools also enable us to integrate multiple reports (such as from Crystal Reports) that used to require to run each individual report ,one by one at time, for data auditing purpose, Now the clinical users can archive the same result by just looking into one single report via the online dashboard in graphic visual, and with drill through capability on demand efficiently! We'd also implemented and deployed Logi Analytic self-services platform which gives the users access for more broaden data spume exploring for business insights and decision-making.

    They provide a very flexible system to consume data and create reports. You can create reports fairly simply, but if you need additional flexibility there are a number of hooks in their API to meet a variety of needs. You can choose from a number of data sources. You can design your reports for the users or you have some options to allow the user to customize or even create their own reports. Logi continues to advance their products at a very quick pace. The new Vision product looks amazing. We tried to use Logi to provide reporting capabilities into an existing SASS offering, an existing ASP.NET application. Logi does provide some integration, but really works better if its used as a stand alone application. It works similarly to Microsoft Reporting Services or Crystal Reports. It's not really a set of .NET controls which is really what we were looking for. The product was very flexible, but we weren't sure what customizations we could make that would be compatible with the next release or if our customizations would no longer work in future releases. It depends. If you are considering using this for an internal reporting tool and are comparing it to Microsoft Reporting Services and Crystal Reports then Logi does provide a number of compelling features. If you are looking to integrate Logi into an existing web site I couldn't recommend using Logi. Their integration is not well developed. It didn't seem to be the primary use for the product and there are many better alternatives. We were looking for a reporting solution that would integrate with an existing SASS offering. Logi was able to meet that need, but not to the level in which we expected or desired. We were able to provide a very flexible analytics grid with grouping, sorting, crosstab and calculated columns. We were also able to deliver these grids on a scheduled bases with Logi's scheduler, although we have replaced the Logi scheduler because we were getting inconsistent results with it delivering reports via email.

    Logi Analytics Logi Ad Hoc is a relatively powerful product for ah-hoc data querying, among a very small set of similar products. It allows presentation of data in hosted in RDBMSes through a metadata layer that can hide the complexity of joins and other physical database details from both end-users and report / ad-hoc query developers (developers can be the "power users", not just technically-minded people). It is basically an "orphan" product that the Logi Analytics company is no longer improving at this time, It does have some limitations as to how data can be presented via metadata and there are some bugs outstanding. The product Logi Ad Hoc, which is the only one I have experience with, is no longer enhanced, hence I do not recommend it. The other products that Logi Analytics is actively developing - Logi Info and Logi Vision - seem successful enough judging from what one can read, especially in the "embedded analytics/reporting" space, with ISVs as the main kind of customer. It also has a newer DataHub product. As a provider, Logi Analytics was included at the boundary between the 'Niche Players' and 'Visionaries' quadrants of the latest Gartner MQ for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms (Feb 2016). Ad hoc querying of data residing in several SQL databases. It is a replacement for writing raw SQL. Allows business users who understand their data to create their own reports.

    Logi's approach to me as a customer has made me feel like part of the family, they are approachable and friendly at all levels. Besides having a great product, the outstanding Customer and Technical Support is one of the main reasons why we retain them.

    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 didnt 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.

    Logi Analytics offers a suite of three products: Logi Info, Logi Composer, and Logi Report. Of these, two were from acquisitions - Logi Composer (the best of the three) was formerly ZoomData, and Logi Report was formerly JReport. Logi Analytics has now themselves been acquired and we'll see how that goes. Fundamentally, Logi Analytics is not a bad company but the problem is it's not awesome either. There's no local support in my country (yet they sell to it ...) so calls are mostly out of hours. Logi Info is the weakest product in the assortment, which ironically is their own product. Logi Composer is very good, though hopefully it will see increased development for things like categorising dashboards, sources, and visuals into folders, etc. rather than a single long list of all.

    Logi gave us the flexibility we needed to meet the configurable nature of our product and for the need to create custom reports. Other products did not allow flexbility to generate reports via script as was one of our primary requirements.
    Logi is well suited for the purpose we used it, integrated into a product offering or for use by larger companies as an internal reporting tool. However, for a small internal IT group or a small site Logi may require too much ramp up time since it can require more technical know-how at times to implement some features. Most reporting tools require you to setup their "server" and once that is setup the user gets to work building reports. Logi requires you to build an app using their tools and then to deploy that app - requiring a more technical developer to complete this effort instead of just a business analyst (which may be the case for some groups). Due to this factor, it has been difficult to ramp up new developers on the system.
    Flexibility and easy standup. Users can choose to create their own Logi application or do a "quick standup" by using design straight out of the box. Due to varied customer requirements, Logi allows the developer to address all needs. Great design studio. The studio provided with Logi to create and maintain your Logi app gives a lot of detail and examples to guide you along the way. The tool even includes some additional tools for the layman to assist with deployment or wizards to help you create more complex type reports that otherwise would require more detailed technical knowledge to create. Of course, you can still do anything you want by hand if that is what you prefer! Documentation. Logi's developer portal provides plenty of documentation and examples to get users going. Need to create a custom template that builds from a table rather than being hard-coded? Search the documentation and you will find examples to piece together to form your solution!
    Logi Studio is currently only available on Windows. I understand the backend is ASP.net but it would be nice to have more flexibility in this given their software can also be java-based (we run their software on a Linux server using java). Logi Info keeps all files as XML, which is fine and actually helps in terms of scripting report creation. The issue is that the majority of settings can only live on a server instead of a database. They do allow reports to now live in a database, but other aspects (such as users saving bookmarks and reports) cannot be and are all saved directly on the server.

    It has been a while since we ran our evaluations, but I recall presenting the feature set for Logi with some samples created in-house against some from other vendors. Not only was Logi Info easier to learn and use out of the box, but the pricing for our use case was so reasonable that it created 'reverse sticker shock' in our executive sponsor.
    The pricing of Logi (per server core) is highly attractive for internal-facing use as we can control/predict how many visits we will get to our internal Logi webserver. The fact that the only license required is on the server means that all of our staff can use Logi Info-presented content without restrictions. The option of OEM licensing is also attractive and presents many future options, but will require much more licensing as the webserver will require more cores to handle the level of traffic demanded by OEM usage.
    The ability to easily integrate data across multiple data platforms The product is easy to implement and learn The elemental design allows for recycling of concepts and features across various reports and output The security was easy to implement into our existing environment The number of options available for data manipulation and presentation, including Scheduling and Caching data, makes it easy to solve any problem or create content for any request Logi's Support Portal staff are absolutely top notch. They are responsive and knowledgeable. Due to the elemental design (see above), it is easy to communicate concepts to and from Logi Support via code samples and/or sample applications. The sample applications which we have received from Logi Support have formed some of the core concepts of our Logi Developer training!
    It is not always intuitive to incorporate JavaScript into Logi Info. The tools are all available, but the process requires multiple resource in translating between Logi and JavaScript. The toolbox is too vast for Logi to provide a 'quick implementation' or 'quick start guide'. There are so many tools that Logi expects the client to determine which fit their use case. There are purchasable 'Professional Services' options for implementation, but without these, the toolset is almost too big.

    Fast development and deployment. Developers of other BI tools are always impressed when they see how quickly I can develop and deploy reports, a simple one takes 30 minutes from start to being embedded online. Any updated or new reports, templates, CSS, anything, is simply a matter of drag and drop using a cross-platform FTP application such as Filezilla. All this without redeploying the application. Embeddable data. I focus on mainframe performance, develop complex reports, and publish them as web pages that just require emailing the URL. Reports that previously may have taken several create by screening scraping data are now available online and pushed into Excel with just a few clicks of a button. They stay in touch. Monthly meetings with my Technical Account Manager allows me to discuss any problems or ask questions about any coding I might be struggling with. The Logi team always greets me with open arms and a big smile whenever I visit their Logi office. Number one industry Customer services and technical support. All the staff, in general, are wonderful, friendly and accommodating.
    Well suited for rapid development and embedded data.Needs some tweaking to use on the zLinux mainframe, but it works.
    Embeddable Pull data from multiple data sources, MySQL, Excel, etc, in the same report. Publish reports by drag and drop, no need to deploy except for Application or Software updates Easy to include custom SQL or JavaScript. Great people User Conference focuses much in a short time. Great value. Analysis Grid/Charts are great to explore data and create reports, but also good design tool. A short learning curve with great support, plus online labs.
    Documentation is frequently lacking or out of date. Only PanthomJS is supported for publishing charts. This is no longer developed and needs reviewing. Cannot group for hours or minutes from Elements Wizard or Analysis Grid/Chart

    It can do anything you want it to do with ones data as long as you don't mind the development costs.
    Complicated relationships with data sources that make it very expensive to maintain and support gave up on us when we needed them the most.

    We have authored a reporting and dashboard solution composed of 350+ reports/dashboards, and deployed that solution to clients across the U.S. and Australia. Our application is updated automatically every evening (thanks to the ease of distributing the code generated in Logi), so our clients always have the LATEST version of our solution available. We have deployed Logi servers on-premise, in the cloud (AWS and Azure), and used it to access both SQL and REST data sources.
    Microsoft did not have a way to protect our intellectual property (i.e. the source code) which lives on distributed servers in the client environment. Also, the SSRS report source code resides inside a SQL database, which makes it difficult to extract and update for a distributed application. Finally the SSRS Report Builder provides only a 'visual' development environment, so when making 'mass changes' to the application, those changes must be done one-at-a-time via the visual editor.
    Tremendous flexibility and control of the "user-experience" for the solution that you develop with Logi. Can access data from a huge variety of datasources, both traditional and emerging big data and cloud. Visual development interface which creates underlying text-based code, which allows easy manipulation both for development as well as 'mass-change' editing. Text-based code is small in size and easy to distribute to remote sites for a distributed solution if required. Obfuscation of the code protects your intellectual property in the case of a commercial deployment. Developer-grade debugging capabilities greatly assist in isolating issues for quick remediation.
    Logi offers a broad range of solutions, and sometimes it can be confusing to know if new features/capabilities are available for your use under your current licenses.

    Logi Composer is fast to use, and really allows you to explore the data and experiment. I like how rapidly you can play and drill down. It's aesthetically pleasant.
    Logi Info is an XML-based web app development tool. It's not a BI tool, it's not for BI people, and is fundamentally a product for web developers that lets them write clunky web apps with some BI widgets. However, if that's what you're going to use it for, why not use Visual Studio instead and find some useful nuget packages for visualisation? Logi Info Studio is barely visual, and most any complex thing you want to do ends up having to be a JavaScript/CSS solution.

    Logi has been a great tool for the success of my company. Logi has changed quite a bit over the 10 years I've worked with the product. Since be purchased by a few years ago the change has not been for the better. Stable relationships in the software industry are hard to come by, but those existed with Logi for a long time. Now turnover seems to be high. The quality of the product has decreased and new features have been slow. A lot of new products have come and gone and the Logi ecosystem (Info, Self Service, Predict, etc.) is confusing as ever. My faith in Logi is at an all-time low, but luckily the product remains solid. For a new user, the company may be fine. As a longtime user comparing the past to present leaves me disappointed.
    The Logi Info platform allows for quick time to market. My team can create a brand new report in a matter of days where other solutions would take weeks. Logi Info places nicely with 3rd party frameworks and libraries.
    The investment in the Info platform seems to be declining. There used to be new features on a regular basis, but now the product is pretty stagnant.

    We collect a tremendous amount of data from over 70 institutions and publish about 400 pages of reports of those data. We have built publication and management tools, including a robust CMS using Logi.
    Ease of use and maintenance
    Versatility. The Business Intelligence tools are good, not as shiny as Tableau, but flexible, solid, and relatively easy to use. Logi shines as development platform to create a complete website or application. We use it multiple ways including a public-facing website hosted completely in Logi and IIS, and multiple private sites for data submission, review, and management.
    There are a few things I would change about the graphics. I want more options to put text labels with values to reduce reliance on legends. There are also minor challenges with seamless detection of mobile device detection.

    I have 4 years of experience using the tool. Used to love it when they had good support. But, they have changed support models. They used to help you over the phone. Now that love is gone. If you need a hint or tip, you will need to submit a ticket, wait 8 hours, and get a response by mail. Normally, that response will only open up another problem, so you'll need to wait again for another email response.
    I do not like their new support model. You cannot develop fast enough to make it worth it. You just spend your weeks, waiting in a queue for an answer to be partially answered via email. I am very frustrated with this software at the moment!
