2022 was a big year for embedded analytics at insightsoftware, bringing significant enhancements to our best-of-breed solutions.
We saw significant growth in our loyal customer base, who inspired us every day with innovative new ways to use our technology. This was bolstered by insightsoftware’s acquisition of Dundas Data Visualization, Inc., adding deeper functionality that has strengthened Logi’s self-service data analytics and visualizations.
Our success in strengthening Logi products was reflected in the annual BARC BI & Analytics Survey, where Logi received four top rankings and 16 leading positions across four different peer groups. We are humbled that the BI and analytics community ranked Logi among the industry’s best embedded analytics solutions.
In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of our highlights this year.
