January 7, 2014 -- This week on "Federal Tech Talk", host John Gilroy interviews Charles Caldwell, the director of Solutions Engineering at LogiAnalytics.

They address the problem that many federal information technology professionals face: how to make sense of all the data they are inundated with every day.

The company started in 2000 and has grown to over 200 employees. They don't view themselves as competing with the traditional vendors like Microsoft, IBM, SAS, or Oracle.

During the interview, Caldwell gives an overview of where his products fit for federal agencies.

Many of the traditional vendors are too self-focused to have products that integrate and can generate knowledge from disparate sources.

After all, they have earned their living by ensuring that companies and agencies standardize on their respective products.

LogiAnalytics has had success with embedding analytics in a wide range of software applications.

Caldwell talks about static and dynamic analytical solutions.

Rather than gazing at rows and rows of numbers, they have had success with visually depicting numeric information, or what is generally classified as "business intelligence.
