Yesterday, we launched the new version of Logi Info v11.
For those of you have that have been using Logi for sometime, the biggest change you will notice is dramatically improved visualizations out of the box and a higher degree of interactivity.
The improvement in visuals is something I have talked about internally for quite a long time. A few years ago our visuals out of the box were “ok,” but recently they have, frankly, lagged the market. The problem has always been that a talented individual could make the output look really good through styling, and in fact, one of our selling points has always been that you could highly customize the output to make it look like anything you want. A wise man once said, “it should look good out of the box, and you should have to try to make it look bad.”
One of my favorite new additions in Logi Info v11 is the addition of several new spark-line type visualizations. What is great about these is that they can be added to data-tables and allow for the incorporation of visual information directly along side tabular data and convey very different types of information.
Another big enhancement to our visuals with Logi Info v11 comes in the form of increased interactivity. For example, legends are now clickable to toggle data as included/not-included, areas of charts can be selected to zoom into detail on charts, and sliders can actually incorporate information themselves.
For those of you who have not yet worked with Logi, I would encourage you to take the opportunity to see what you can accomplish. That quirky way of quickly creating custom content may be a bit daunting at first (we call it elemental development), but it is the secret sauce that makes our solution so damn cool.
