Integration with Google Maps allows users of the Logi 8 BI Platform to conduct location-based analysis by visualizing geographic data in reports and dashboards.
McLean, Va. (PRWEB) June 11, 2007 — LogiXML (www.logixml.com) continues to add value to Logi 8, the company’s interactive, Web-based business intelligence (BI) platform by introducing Geographic Information System (GIS) integration with Google™ Maps for location-based analysis. Logi 8 is a pure Web-based solution that offers robust BI functionality, including managed and ad hoc reporting, OLAP analysis and BI data services for technical and non-technical users in organizations of all sizes.
The GIS Mapping feature of Logi 8 lets users visualize the geographic portions of their business data to support location-based analysis. The Google Maps integration element in Logi 8 allows users to effectively use city, state and zip code to visualize and analyze data in terms of geographic impact. The Google Maps integration also offers users the option to “geo-code” addresses by showing longitude/latitude locations using markers on a map. These customizable graphical markers can easily link to other Logi 8 reports for users to easily identify and explore anomalies and potential problems.
Integration of Google Maps with Logi 8 provides new ways to promote understanding and decision-making around key trends in a particular location or region. This is helpful for a variety of scenarios, for example, to analyze competitive sales revenue for retail locations, explore election results, analyze demographics or determine disease outbreaks, among many other applications.
“The addition of GIS Mapping is an excellent example of how LogiXML is able to continually extend the value of the Logi 8 BI platform for our customers,” said John Kyle, VP of Marketing at LogiXML. “We have now enabled a service that lets customers tap into the value of the popular Google Maps service and use it in a way that aligns with their business objectives. LogiXML’s pure Web- and standards-based approach allows us to easily add features like location-based analysis to our platform.”
The Logi 8 connection to Google Maps also allows users to plot addresses on a map and include report information or charts within a convenient, clickable “bubble”. Taking advantage of Logi 8 drill-down features, the markers and charts easily link to report details and to other reports.
