LogiXML Delivers Low Cost Pervasive BI Platform by Adding Subscription Licensing Option

Less Than $15,000 Entry Cost, Fast Implementation and Ease of Development Means Most Organizations Can See Positive Return on Investment on a Complete BI Platform in Days, Not Months

MCLEAN, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 4, 2007 -- Believing that all companies, regardless of their size, deserve the same opportunity to implement robust business intelligence functionality, LogiXML is now offering the option of subscription licensing for their popular Logi 8 BI Platform. Logi 8 is a pure Web-based, unified and standards-based BI solution that offers an entire BI platform in one easy-to-implement package. The pure Web-based, Logi 8 BI Platform includes all the capabilities an organization needs to generate the benefits of BI including ad hoc reporting, OLAP reporting, BI data services, and managed reporting -- complete with dashboards, Analysis Grid, enhanced security and a host of report output options.

Unlike other BI packages that have been scaled down for small to mid-sized enterprises to reach a target price point, the subscription option of the Web-based Logi 8 BI platform offers the same robust functionality that LogiXML's large enterprises enjoy. LogiXML has simply chosen to make the solution more affordable by providing the option of subscription licensing rather than by compromising the breadth and strength of its product offering. LogiXML's subscription licensing model means that the Logi 8 Platform can be deployed for less than $15,000 for a single processor or less than $30,000 for a multiprocessor server. LogiXML browser-based client seats are unlimited and free of charge in the subscription model, as is the case in the company's perpetual license offerings.

"The fast growth of our customer base tells us that the market for BI is strong among companies of all sizes. The size of a company is not a reflection of the level of sophistication they deserve from a BI solution. As long as organizations can see the value of BI in their business and can expect a fast return on investment, they are strong prospects," said Arman Eshraghi, founder and CEO, LogiXML. "We wanted to offer all our prospective customers access to our complete Logi 8 Platform that will help them achieve their BI goals. The subscription-based licensing option allows us to do this without having to eliminate any product features or benefits."

The Logi 8 Platform Subscription Package includes all the software functionality found in Logi 8, plus support for the platform for the term of the subscription. Including:

--  Logi 8 Info: The complete managed reporting solution for report
    developers featuring powerful dashboards for personalized information at-a-
    glance plus Analysis Grid and innovative heat maps that help users
    understand complex information easily.
--  Logi 8 Ad Hoc: The self-service Web-based reporting solution for non-
    technical business users that provides access to critical business
    information quickly and easily.
--  Logi 8 OLAP: The Web-based cube viewer for fast analysis of OLAP
--  Logi 8 Mart: An easy-to-implement data mart for fast delivery of BI
    and reporting information for efficient reporting and analysis

LogiXML offers two configurations of the Logi 8 Subscription Package -- a Single Processor Implementation offered at $14,995 per year or a Single Server Implementation, which may include multiple processors, offered at $29,995 per year.

"What I like about LogiXML's pricing model is its 'whole product' dimension, i.e. no 'buts,'" said Gerry Brown, senior analyst, Bloor Research. "It is a complete solution including software product, implementation, and maintenance for the price on the tin, and is immediately available for download off the Internet."
