Developing in-app analytics takes a team effort. If the application’s core development team is running the show completely on their own, they’ll get bogged down with requests for enhancements and support for new visualizations and data sources.

That’s what makes a shared authoring model so incredibly valuable: By empowering application owners to build in-app analytics in conjunction with others—including local administrators and end users—those app owners can build stellar applications more efficiently and effectively. Everyone can participate in the dashboard-building process.

Logi’s latest release powers an agile, continuous dev-ops application authoring model. Logi 12.2’s shared authoring model lets everyone participate in creating and improving the application. App owners share in the creation of a genius application with local application administrators and end users. Admins and users can promote, publish, and modify content—all without using Logi Studio.

How Shared Authoring Works

  • Application owners build the base data visualizations, analytics, and dashboards
  • Application extenders—including local administrators and end users—further build out the application by tailoring the app for end users
  • Local app owners or local admins can add more content such as data, metadata, dashboards, and menus to publish data
  • End users can discover new insights that can be promoted back to the local admin for further modification

But that’s not all: Check out these additional features support the new shared authorship model in Logi 12.2:
