LogiXML Adds Geographic Information System Integration to Logi 8 Web-Based BI Platform

Integration With ESRI ArcWeb Subscription Service Will Allow Users of the Logi 8 BI Layer to Dramatically Present Geographic-Related Data in Their Reports, Dashboards and Analyses

MCLEAN, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- LogiXML ( continues to add value to Logi 8, the Company's new interactive, Web-based business intelligence (BI) platform by introducing Geographic Information System (GIS) data and technology through a partnership agreement with ESRI, the world leader in GIS. Logi 8 is a pure Web-based, unified and XML-based solution that offers robust BI functionality, including managed and ad hoc reporting, OLAP analysis and BI data services, accessible by technical and non-technical users in organizations of all sizes.

The GIS Mapping features of Logi 8 support integration of GIS data with organizational data to present compelling geographic representations that let customers visualize the spatial component of their business data. This integration provides ways to project and promote understanding and decision making around key trends in terms of their geographic impact. For example, this approach helps to answer questions like, "Where are the closest business locations to my current location?" You can then further drill down or drill through to other related reports to answer questions such as, "What is the revenue for a particular location?"

"The addition of GIS Mapping is an excellent example of how LogiXML is able to continually expand the value of the Logi 8 BI 'layer' for our customers," said Arman Eshraghi, founder and CEO, LogiXML. "We are enabling an additional service, at no extra charge, which allows customers to tap into the value of a 'best of breed' service like ESRI and use it in a way that complements their business need. This is a relatively simple process using our Logi 8 BI layer approach that cannot be easily matched by other vendors in our market."

The initial service will offer a connection to ESRI's Arc Web Service that allows Logi 8 users to integrate GIS data into reports through a subscription to the ESRI service. Additional service options from ESRI and links to other GIS sources will be added to the Logi 8 GIS Mapping as customer demand for this service expands.

"We are happy to see LogiXML launch such an innovative use of our ArcWeb Services to connect the power of our GIS data and services with the power of Web-based business intelligence," says Steve Trammell of ESRI's Business Intelligence Alliances team. "We look forward to expanding this partnership to bring additional high value ESRI services to LogiXML users in the future."

Logi 8 is available now from LogiXML. For more information, visit or call 1.888.LOGIXML.
