Virginia Leverages Logi Analytics for Stimulus Website
Logi powers the Commonwealth of Virginia’s stimulus website, where the public can view interactive maps, charts and graphs of the project submissions.
The Commonwealth of Virginia employed Logi Analytics business intelligence (BI) solutions in support of President Obama’s Stimulus Package, leveraging its dashboard, reporting, and analysis tools in an interactive website.
Created using Logi Info, the site reports project ideas submitted by citizens wishing to weigh in on how Virginia should use federal stimulus dollars, and has generated a great deal of interest both within and outside of Virginia.
“Several other BI software vendors offered to help us create a site,” said Kathy Graham, the Commonwealth’s Business Intelligence Competency Center Manager, “but we had to tell them, it’s already done!”
“Using the Logi platform enabled our team to create the site in under two weeks.”
Using the Logi platform enabled our team to create the site in under two weeks, allowing us to get this information to the public very quickly.
Logi Analytics was awarded a contract by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA), allowing agencies and public bodies within the Commonwealth of Virginia (and other public bodies outside of it) to purchase licenses, support, and services for Logi Analytics BI solutions. The contract provides The Commonwealth with Logi Analytics products and support services, including an enterprise-wide license option available to Virginia’s executive branch agencies.
“This project—and how quickly it was deployed—comes as a powerful validation of Logi Analytics’ philosophy,” said Brett Jackson, CEO of Logi Analytics. “While the ink of President Obama’s stimulus bill was still fresh, the State of Virginia was already using Logi solutions to quickly and easily build this interactive application for its citizens. The quickness of deployment, the simplicity of use, and the vibrant interactive features of The Commonwealth’s application perfectly illustrate what Logi is all about.”
Virginia launched the stimulus reporting site within two weeks of the project start date. “Using the Logi platform enabled our team to create the site in under two weeks, allowing us to get this information to the public very quickly,” said Ms. Graham. “We could have done it even faster if it weren’t for other technical challenges that did not relate to the Logi product.”
The application allows the public to view interactive maps, charts, and graphs of the project submissions, and drill-down to view all project details. Virginia has offered to share the reporting application with other states, as requested, to assist them with their stimulus reporting efforts.
