McLean, Virginia – February 22, 2012 – LogiXML, the pioneer of web-based business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned LogiXML in its 2012 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms* report. This year’s report evaluated 21 different software vendors.
“We are pleased to be positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for BI,” said Brett Jackson, CEO of LogiXML. “LogiXML continues to deliver on its value proposition of ease of use, rapid time to deployment, lower cost and high customer satisfaction, and this year we intend to be the leading BI vendor for embedded analytics.”
Gartner has identified six trends that directly impact the direction of the BI platforms market, the first being the differences between business users and IT driving product preferences. According to Gartner, “ The crux of the conflict remains the same as last year: business users demand easy to use, flexible products that put analytic power into their own hands, against IT’s desire to maintain standards and create a supportable BI environment with predictable performance and quality data. These different points of view are evident in the results of the Magic Quadrant survey, with business users identifying “ease of use” as their primary buying motivation 52 percent of the time, and where IT ranks “functionality” as its No. 1 priority.
“LogiXML’s overall approach to providing dashboards, reporting, and analytics is straightforward and reasonably priced. It’s simple to deploy and maintain, and it’s possible to deploy within hours, regardless if it’s on private infrastructure, cloud servers, or on IaaS settings,” said Joe Sabados, Web projects manager for SAIC, a Fortune 500© company. “The solution requires very little operation and maintenance labor for care and nurturing, which leaves us more time for deploying new and updated solutions to additional users.”
Sabados added, “LogiXML has allowed us to reinvent reporting and how we provide BI for our division, which in part means avoiding traditional big BI products and sticker shock associated with them. LogiXML has also allowed us to exponentially expand the visibility of critical business data to appropriate audiences, which was not a previously affordable option; it is a major element of our core business and has brought tremendous value to our company.”
