I have worked with the Logi Info platform since v9. The greatest thing about Logi is the ability to quickly create reports/dashboards that provide value to our organization. In a matter of hours something pretty special can be created and deployed. Unlike other platforms, Logi allows us to easily white-label the interface and easily work with external frameworks and libraries such as Bootstrap. New users don't need a PhD to get started and the DevNet website is one of the best product documentation sources around.
The Logi Info platform allows us to deliver great looking dashboards in a matter of days rather than months.
As a long time user the addition of new features has slowed over the years and bugs have increased. That being said, these issues are relatively small and shouldn't detract from picking Logi.

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.
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.

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.
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 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.
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.

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.
Embeddable - Logi Studio expedites development. Most basic reports can be written in minutes and published via drag and drop in seconds. Customer Support - Logi respond to all questions and problems I encounter in a timely manner, in fact they often go beyond what I expect and provide. These are dealt with at the Technical Account Manager level without having to open a case number.
Nothing comes to mind... Nope, still nothing!

Logi Info is a business analytics and visualization platform that provides businesses of all sizes the power to embed, customize, and provide self-service analytics to their end users.

Equipped with an easy, customizable drag-and-drop user interface, applications you create within Logi Info can be embedded into many third-party business tools, such as SugarCRM, for example, making them a seamless part of your existing tools and workflows. All Logi Info applications are responsive and can be accessed from any device.
Logi Info employs role-based access controls and provides varying security levels to your data: row-level, column-level, and even security for each of your various visualizations, so you can deliver efficient reporting and analysis.
Logi Info is a comprehensive and intuitive application platform that provides business intelligence capabilities to a whole spectrum of self-service analytics users.
Consumers, who make up majority of an organization’s workforce, are those who want quick insights into the key performance indicators they work with, including the ability to get down to the nitty-gritty of the data that matter to them and customize their data views depending on what makes sense to them. Ultimately, Logi Info allows them to make informed decisions based on accurate, vetted data.
For creators, or those that build new dashboards and reports, Logi Info provides an intuitive, drag-and-drop environment where they can choose datasets from a variety of data sources. Analysts are afforded the freedom to explore and ask questions about their data, and uncover new insights via best-fit visualizations pushed by the app’s recommendation engine.
The Logi Info user interface looks very much like Excel, and data is presented in tabular format, which shows exactly what type of data users are looking at. The self-service reporting module allows end users to run ad hoc queries without IT help, visualize data using tools like waterfall charts and bar graphs, and build dashboards and reports based on the results.
Because Logi Info can connect to a wide range of data sources, it consolidates all of your data in a single console and can blend them together to create synthesized, holistic, and personalized data visualizations that are both engaging and interactive. Visualizations can come in the form of heat maps, data tables with in-cell graphics, geographic maps, gauges, and cross-tab reports, among others.
For increased user adoption and engagement, Logi Info gives you the ability to embed data and analytics into the applications you already use, making actionable intelligence a natural component of your transactional workflows. This you can do with absolutely no coding.
Through web service APIs, Logi Info also lets you create bi-directional data flows between applications, and its extensible architecture allows you to include custom scripts to your visualizations.
Logi Info’s data virtualization product, Logi DataHub, connects to various data sources, such as on-premise databases, cloud applications like Eloqua, Salesforce, HubSpot, and QuickBooks Online, and files like Excel and CSV files on your local computer, and then caches all that data in one centralized repository for fine-tuning and blending.
Once data sources are specified, you’re ready to create data views, unify your datasets, manipulate multi-part data, generate reports, and build dashboards. DataHub’s smart profiling feature automatically identifies data formats and types. Fetched data is refreshed according to the schedule you indicate.
Because Logi Info functions as that one hub for all data hubs, it aggregates data from a multitude of sources in one place, so users can quickly and easily extract actionable information to help them get things done. Security restrictions, such as role-based access controls, ensure the data provided to them coincides with the established access permissions granted to them.
Logi Info’s flexible framework also allows for information portals that you can customize at will – not only with the data you choose to showcase but also with the colors, logo, and the portals’ overall look and feel. This white-labeling capability gives software vendors and other web service providers the opportunity to offer Logi Info as an add-on to the menu of products and services they provide to their clients.
Logi Info applications are provided to all users as standard HTML5 output, which means they adapt to whatever device users access the applications from, including Android, iOS, and Windows mobile devices.
Applications are also embeddable within native mobile apps, and they function the same way browser-based applications do.
Logi Info integrates with the following: relational databases – SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL; big data – Amazon Redshift, HP Vertica, MongoDB, Hadoop, Cloudera, Hortonworks, and MAPR Web Services; cloud apps – Salesforce, Google Analytics, Marketo, Twitter, and LinkedIn; and flat files – Excel.
Logi Info also carries an API.
