Logi Analytics Review: "Logi Info Provides Flexible Reporting for Your Product!"https://www.trustradius.com/business-intelligence-biLogi AnalyticsUnspecified7.8311012017-03-28T19:13:37.759Z
Overall Satisfaction with Logi Analytics
We currently have Logi Info tightly integrated into our product offering to provide reporting for administrative users. Logi Info allows our users to see information from site traffic to drill-down to the fine details of the users and companies which are using their sites. Logi Info was a great fit for us as it allowed embedding as an OEM application and it was not a cookie-cutter reporting software. You can build your application the way you see fit using their plug-ins to provide an experience for the users that are tailored to their needs. Since this included within our product, our product is highly configurable which means the reporting needed to address that and Logi was the best suited to this job.
- 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.
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.
