Several other business intelligence software vendors called us offering to help us create a site
McLean, VA (PRWEB) March 12, 2009
LogiXML, Inc., the leader in purely Web-based, truly unified Business Intelligence (BI) dashboard, reporting, and analysis solutions, announced today that the Commonwealth of Virginia has employed its product in support of President Obama's recently passed Stimulus Package. The Commonwealth of Virginia launched an interactive web site which went live on Monday, Feb. 16.
Created using Logi Info, the site reports project ideas submitted by citizens wishing to weigh in on how Virginia should use federal stimulus dollars and has generated a great deal of interest both within and outside of Virginia. "Several other business intelligence software vendors called us offering to help us create a site," said Kathy Graham, the Commonwealth's Business Intelligence Competency Center Manager, "but we had to tell them, it's already done!"
In August 2008, LogiXML was awarded a contract by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA), allowing agencies and public bodies within the Commonwealth of Virginia (and other public bodies outside of it) to purchase licenses, support and services for LogiXML's signature enterprise-grade business intelligence solutions. The contract, which includes five optional one-year extensions at the end of the initial 5-year period, provides the Commonwealth with the complete line of LogiXML products and support services, including an enterprise-wide license option available to Virginia's executive branch agencies.
"This project--and how quickly it was put in place--comes as a powerful validation of LogiXML's philosophy," said Brett Jackson, CEO of LogiXML. "While the ink of President Obama's stimulus bill was still fresh, the State of Virginia was already using Logi solutions to quickly and easily build this interactive application for its citizens. The quickness of deployment, the simplicity of use and the vibrant interactive features of the Commonwealth's application perfectly illustrate what Logi is all about."
Virginia launched the stimulus reporting site within two weeks of the project start date. "Using the Logi platform enabled our team to create the site in under two weeks, allowing us to get this information to the public very quickly," said Graham. "We could have done it even faster if it weren't for other technical challenges that did not relate to the Logi product."
The application allows the public to view interactive maps, charts, and graphs of the project submissions, and drill down to view all project details. Virginia has offered to share the reporting application with other states as requested to assist them with their stimulus reporting efforts.
