Organizations looking to harness the value of their databases and applications and transform the data into usable, business-critical information can do so quickly and affordably with Logi 8, a new interactive, Web-based business intelligence platform from LogiXML (www.logixml.com). Logi 8 is a pure Web-based, unified and XML-based solution that offers robust BI functionality, including managed and ad hoc reporting, OLAP analysis and BI data services, accessible by technical and non-technical users in organizations of all sizes.
Logi 8’s open, standards-based architecture makes it easy to implement and easy to use. Organizations can have sophisticated, enterprise-class reporting applications up and running on Logi 8 in hours, as opposed to the weeks or months it can take to deploy legacy BI products. Logi 8 empowers users at all technical levels and across all functional groups in an organization by allowing them to access, analyze and share business information through BI capabilities optimized for specific user groups.
Logi 8 offers organizations a compelling value proposition that combines depth and breadth of product and pure Web-based design with an aggressive pricing and licensing model that supports scaling BI implementations to serve many users in an organization. Companies license Logi 8 on a per server basis, instead of per seat, at an affordable price point, which makes it far more cost-effective than competitive offerings — in some cases, up to 80 percent less expensive. The pure Web-based design of the Logi 8 platform means that it is optimized for interactive reporting and that reports are accessible by the full range of Web-access devices, including innovative products like the new Apple iPhone.
“Historically, Business Intelligence applications have been seen as a rare commodity, restricted for use by senior managers and business analysts,” said Arman Eshraghi, founder and CEO, LogiXML. “What good is a BI solution that only puts information in the hands of a select few? Logi 8 is a platform that makes business critical information accessible by everyone from power users to technology novices. Across the board, it helps users make more informed business decisions.”
The Logi 8 Platform consolidates key capabilities to enhance pure Web-based BI like AJAX support for interactive reporting and .NET 2.0 support for increased performance and scalability. The Logi 8 Platform also makes it easy for organizations to deliver a full range of BI functions built on one consistent architecture at a dramatically lower price point compared to current market share leaders.
