Logi Analytics has released Logi Vision 1.3, combining new analytical capabilities with social features that transform data discovery from the purview of data scientists to anyone who needs data-driven insights. Logi Vision 1.3 is available to try as a downloadable, full-featured version so anyone can work with their spreadsheets, cloud applications, and corporate data within the security of their workplace. Also available is a hosted trial option.
Logi Analytics introduced Logi Vision earlier this year as a fresh approach to data discovery that lets users tap into the power of analytics. Logi Vision’s recommendation engine, built-in data science technology, and intuitive collaborative environment make it easy to analyze, visualize, and share insights previously only available to data scientists and other advanced users.
Steven Schneider, chief product officer at Logi Analytics points out that “the majority of business users are not data experts. We’ve built that expertise into Logi Vision, along with consumer-based approaches and collaboration tools, to offer a highly intuitive, community-driven approach to self-service analytics.”
Logi Vision 1.3 offers unique capabilities allowing anyone to immediately glean insights from their data.
- Mapping: Logi Vision delivers geo-mapping with choropleth (filled regions) and bubble maps, both online and offline. Logi Vision automatically geo-codes continents, countries, states, and populated places so users need not ask IT or data experts to translate locations into latitude and longitude coordinates. Logi Vision’s maps are based on open source technology that provides virtually limitless layers of detail, categorizations, and analytics.
- Activity stream: Employing social capabilities similar to Twitter’s timeline and Facebook’s news feed, Logi Vision’s activity stream feature lets users view the most recent analytical activities of their colleagues. This feature encourages greater collaboration among users and makes viewing and sharing new insights easier than ever.
- Binning: Logi Vision converts numeric or time data into dimensions for analysis without requiring a data architect and special data models. For example, ages can be made into age ranges, salary information can turn into salary bands, and dates can turn into specific range categories for further analysis. Logi Vision automatically creates bins based on the data and allows for bin adjustments. In addition, anyone can easily create their own bins of information from scratch. Users can further interact with their data by choosing top or bottom bins based on numbers or percentiles.
Logi Vision 1.3 also extends integration with Logi Info, the company’s flagship business intelligence platform, to offer governed data discovery that addresses the wider analytic needs of an organization. Logi Vision provides the ability to insert and delete Logi Info reports and dashboards within the Vision InfoBoard. Logi Vision also added LDAP/AD authentication and data source security, so anyone can share data and projects while specifying the read/write permissions of recipients.
