Charity's choice driven by cost-effective scalability and ease of access to multiple data sources
Reading, UK - 13 November 2012 - LogiXML, the pioneer of web-based business intelligence (BI), today announced that after a wide examination of the market, the Stroke Association, the UK's major stroke charity, has chosen LogiXML to give deeper and faster insight and analysis to connect performance goals and outcomes as it works towards its 2015 strategy.
The investment in LogiXML will eliminate days of manual effort currently required to produce the Stroke Association's Balanced Scorecard, which is used by the organisation's board to monitor and manage performance. The scorecard takes data from 40 different internal and external data feeds in a range of structured and unstructured formats. The new reporting platform will show why things have happened as senior decision makers can drill down into source data and, by speeding up the reporting process, the organisation will be able to base decisions on better quality and more timely information. The pricing model of the new platform also allows the Stroke Association to pursue its vision of wider access to performance information, as an increase in user numbers will not mean an increase in cost.
Paul Hughes, Head of IT, Stroke Association explained: "We chose LogiXML, primarily, because its data structure allows us to access any type of data source quickly, without the need to build complex data models. Breaking data out of its existing silos will allow us to understand elements of our performance that were not visible before, and spark new ideas of how to support more people. We also wanted a reporting and analytics platform that would allow us to be completely self-sufficient as we anticipate that, once people get excited about the analysis potential LogiXML gives us, we will see an increased demand for more reports from more users."
"LogiXML provides IT professionals with the fastest way to create BI applications, deploy scalable dashboards and reports, and embed analytics into existing applications - all for a fraction of the cost of other solutions," said Simon Ryan, Managing Director, EMEA, LogiXML. "In addition to this, the Stroke Association will discover the versatility of our technology and find it solves issues way beyond the original intent, right across the organisation."
In 2011 and 2012, LogiXML was positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms, where its products ranked among the highest for ease of use, overall product functionality, support, product quality, performance, and customer experience.
