What do you like best?

1. Panorama Necto is very Business-oriented BI system, comparing with other Data Discovery tools like Tableau and Qlik. Necto has inherited legacy of OLAP, in both functions of product itself and consulting resources of subject-matter experts, and has high capability to build BI system to help problem solving and management in ordinary businesses.

2. Panorama Necto can create Necto model with ease out of raw data and transactions and it provides you with excellent adaptability against new challenging tasks.

3. It can add splendid visual appearance on the Dashboard with infographics(IGs). Panorama is a pioneer to apply IG representation for BI system.

What do you dislike?

Though it can connect any types of data source it needs SQL server for analysis engine and it might be cons for the users of open-source DB like PostgreSQL or MySQL. For client environment It depends on Flash technology although it is completely Web-based.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is cost effective system that does not need 'development', which in a sense means traditional software development with programing codes by skilled engineers. I believe that OLAP is the limit of BI system for business users without SQL query programming skill to work on by themselves.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For example, demografic and usage analysis of customers and simulating profitability using reservation data for golf course management system. Another application is analysing POS and EC transactions for a retail system.

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility of the product - its ability to handle multiple data sources and to combined them into a single view of "the world" that can build complex analytics & reporting. I also like the infographics capabilities.

What do you dislike?

The online tools (youtube etc) aren't being kept up to date with the product releases. It doesn't give you confidence in the product when this kind of collateral is a couple of releases behind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read all the materials and watch all the videos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to take log file data from an application, combine it with infrastucture data and then present it back to a cusomer using a hosted application. This gives almost real time BI presentation with a dashboard that an idiot can navigate.

We have a mature data warehouse and a few OLAP cubes built on top of it and now we are looking for the best front-end tools for our business users. The goal is to get some load off the IT and BI development team and provide the end-users with the tool for self service BI. We have been evaluating a couple of the solutions present on the market and Necto has caught our attentions because of some great innovative features.

We were thrilled with the capability to collaborate with other users utilizing social features such as the ability to subscribe to users, initiate context-based discussions and search for users and relevant content within the system.

Also, Necto will automatically identify exception in your data, such as drops in revenue, lack of inventory etc. and offer automated insights and potential root causes. A user can define a threshold to determine when a data point is considered an exception and an exclamation mark or other warning symbol will appear in cell when the data falls within this definition.

One of the features that is expected for tools of this kind, but is very basic in some of the products, is the ability to extract the data from multiple sources. It is available in Necto and it offers a wide range of data sources such as Microsoft SQL Server, OLAP cubes, Oracle, Teradata, Salesforce etc and add data from Excel spreadsheets and flat files as well.

Infographics are a great and unique feature. For me, they are a new, enhanced version of KPIs. Users can create their own infographics or choose from the existing.

Support for mobile devices is very good and it allows the same look and feel in all devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile phone) which is great for the companies that have users who travel a lot and are often in the field.

What do you dislike?

Not compatible with Macs and not supported for Blackberry.

Does not support multiple languages.

Needs more support for predictive and forecast analysis.

Reporting customization features are limited to some extent, which might be a problem for advanced users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product has some unique features such as infographics and great support for collaborations. Looks like most of the features supported by the competition are in there, so I don't see any problems related to that. I would suggest evaluating this tool and I'm sure some of the users are going to find it very powerful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reporting, business intelligence, self-service BI, data analysis.

Like I said in the beginning I liked this product particularly because it helped me solve some serious data related problem in near future.Following are some of the unique benefits of the product which saved my day again and again in recent past.

1) Self Service,Data discovery and automation which automatically generates a work board from raw data provided.

2)Sharing of workboards with user,providing inline comment and starting a group discussion on a particularly issue in a dash board is another great feature which we had used many a times in data analysis and finding out the root cause of issues.

3) Automatic recommendations of similar available dashboards while data analysis is another cool feature which gives you the opportunity to cross check and cross examine your data .

While working on Business Intelligence and searching for newly available tool, I came across Panorama Necto. This is the first business tool I have seen with scope for personalization and providing great visual infographic experience and user friendly.

With this tool Business users can effectively present data and track performance very interactively, while changes are being updated dynamically.

There is also provision for collaborative working where users can share, discuss and edit on a single platform. Some helpful features like realtime notifications, public or private comments, maps and location based services are also made available.

Mobile BI app takes this tool to the next level.

What do you dislike?

This is not compatible with Mac OS and Blackberry.

No multilanguage support.

Limited reporting customization abilities.
