Logi Analytics Adds Self-Service Reporting and Dashboards to Logi Info
Logi Analytics has released the latest version of its business intelligence platform, Logi Info, allowing customers to embed self-service capabilities directly into their applications, and letting business users author their own data visualizations, dashboards, and reports.
The release introduces significant enhancements to Info's self-service module, including advanced layout capabilities, enhanced report management and sharing, and new responsive Web capabilities.
Logi Info's self service module lets users select from a set of trusted data, automatically generates a query, and returns data so they can then create their own tables, charts, dashboards, and reports. The self-service module can be embedded directly within a client's Web application, providing users with a seamless self-service experience within the context of the parent application. Users can then manage and organize visualizations and reports within personalized and shared folders, as well as collaborate and share insights with colleagues.
Logi Info can be customized to meet users’ self-service workflows. It includes the following:
- Managed Data Access – Logi Info’s active query builder offers end users flexibility to construct and manage their working data set without pre-determined queries. End users can select data from their certified data sources and feed the resulting data set into the Analysis Grid for further analysis, calculations, and creation of visuals.
- Expanded Visualization Support and Interactivity – The latest version of Logi Info introduces several new and enhanced chart types, including heat maps, waterfall charts, pyramids, whiskers plots, and funnels.
- Simplified Web-based layout of Dashboards and Reports – A drag-and-drop interface allows users to create dashboards and reports, portion out the workspace, pick tables and charts from the visual gallery, upload images, write in custom text, and add links inside the report. Additionally, the latest version of Logi Info introduces a responsive-design approach to laying out visuals, which optimizes the display and reduces the need to scroll or resize when viewing the content across a wide range of devices with differing screen sizes.
- New Folder-based Organization and Management capabilities – Logi Info allows users to organize and manage the reports and dashboards they create into folders. They have complete control to create and delete folders; add, remove, and copy content into the folders; and arrange and nest folders to create cascaded folder levels to manage their personal and share information.
- New Dashboard and Report Sharing Capabilities – Taking inspiration from Google Docs, Logi Info allows users to share reports and dashboards they create with other users in their organization to enable better collaboration and communication. Security ensures that users see only the data they are authorized to view and is powerful enough to work in multi-tenant SaaS and extranet deployments.
"Self-service capabilities for business applications can often feel like an afterthought, leaving business users confused," said Steven Schneider, chief product officer at Logi Analytics, in a statement. "With our latest version of Info, Logi is now able to offer fully embeddable self-service capabilities, providing customers with a structured, managed environment that opens up self-service analytics to all business users, while still offering IT the control they need."
Logi Analytics last updated the Logi Info solution in the spring with the release of Logi Info 11.2. The product focused on improving access and analysis of data coming from NoSQL source MongoDB, as well as better visualization of data.
