"A Review of Panorama Necto"

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.

"This is a good product with a lot of capability."

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.

What Self-Service Business Intelligence solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Socially-Enabled Business Intelligence tool that allows users to collaborate more effectively"

What do you like best?

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 .

"One of the best self service BI tools available in market"

What do you like best?

Necto-15 is a real visual treat. I am basically a data visualization expert and recently got introduced Necto-15. It is real amazing to see such a collaborative self-service BI tool hosted over web which caters to almost all requirements and expectations one can have pertaining to quick data visualization. I have had the opportunity to work with multiple data visualization tools but Necto-15 experience is entirely different. It has a very intuitive interface making it easier to understand how to use the interface and the best thing is that it is all drag and drop. I loved the features of managing everything including the development, over a centralized hosting platform.

It was real stunning to see how this product can understand various aspects of data, can categorize data types and apply the fitting treatments on the data. Really an excel to a dashboard in a few clicks. Simply superb. The visual appeal is amazing and the dashboards really look amazing. It has great color combination and enhanced visualizations such as map features etc. which makes it stand apart.

Collaborative BI is the next big thing in data science and visualization domain and this product certainly has all the qualities to excel further on all aspects.

What do you dislike?

Nothing as of now. During my use, i had very much straight forward requirements and hence everything that I needed, the product was capable enough to solve it for me.

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

I used the tool to create a highly interactive dashboard over sales data for one of my clients. It was really worth the effort I had put it, Very good response from my clients as well.

"Provides insights but with some technical limitations"

What do you like best?

Necto has powerful infographic support and it makes it easy to create and modify datasources on the fly.

What do you dislike?

There are several technical bugs and limitations. The Necto formula feature is very useful, but with moderate sized data, the Necto server will time out with the most basic formulas. I would like to use exception highlighting for example, but I know it won't work with my data. I find the user interface at times unintuitive and there are bugs that hinder the usefulness of the product.

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

We are using Necto to identify bottlenecks and improve efficiency in critical areas.

"A very effective tool for analitics"

What do you like best?

This app is very easy to use and offers a huge variety of features.

It supports different graphics templates, helps to connect with your colleagues and implements interactive analitics tools. Now we get amazing sales reports and can check many aspects of work of our sales team.

Moreover, we can adapt or create infographics for each task from our boss.

Another positive point is the cloud service. All our people can use this platform in their work without big and heavy laptops. This is a very scalable and effective solution!

I am grateful to Panorama support which gave us a short but useful instructions and responded quickly on our questions.

What do you dislike?

Necto haven`t supporting community sso we can`t ask our questions to other users. Support is a great deal but sometimes we need to discuss some terms without business insiders. Also they haven`t support for Linux and we got some troubles with drawing graphics on Kubuntu 14.10.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and you will be satisfied.

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

We have carried out analysis of forecasting sales, and also we have implemented our dream of supporting the sales in the independent from the computer possibilities form.

"Panoramic view in BI Landscape"

What do you like best?

As someone who's job profile and work demands relate to evaluation an exhaustive comparison of various BI Tools, I would like to point out the below mentioned features of Panorama which makes it a forerunner:

1) The ease of use of Panorama is the striking feature which reduces the training cost drastically (Note: Users should have any prior experience in BI Tool)

2) Excellent support for report and dashboard creation involving maps (geo analytic)

3) Intuitive and interactive analytic.

4) Pretty stable platform to integrate multiple and disparate source systems.

5) A run for value for money for small and mid level BI Applications.

6) A tool more concentrated towards end user facilitation. (An extension of point number 1)

What do you dislike?

As a new tool to the BI Landscape, things which can be improved on is as follows:

1) With the growing popularity and usage of this BI Tool, support communities and forums should grow, which I think is less as of now.

2) With the advent of the Big Data platform, next versions should consider integration of Panorama to Hadoop landscape.

3) Evaluation copy which can be harnessed by initial users in their local machines should be made available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Empowering business users with effective data discovery tool, ease of setting up and intuitive infographics and geo analytics.

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

As far the critical business benefits and justifications for Panorama, I would like to stress on the below points:

1) Highly interactive and intuitive business dashboards for top level management.

2) Cost effective to other costly reporting and dashboard tools. Sure value for money.

3) Effective decision and forecasting tool.

"Ana amazing tool for self service BI"

What do you like best?

The best thing about the tool is the amazing speed at which it connects to any data source and collects the metadata for further use.

Quick creation of info-graphics those are smart and visually rich.

Easy to develop,share and publish.

Multiple analysts and contributors can work on it at the same time.

Connects to almost every type of databases including flat file systems and text files.

What do you dislike?

The tool needs to have good data connectors to connect to advanced data and file management systems such as bigdata and hadoop. Apart from that there are nothing else that should be worked upon immediately. However there are always scope of improvement and lets see ho the product evolves itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is really an amazing tool for people who want to use the power of self service BI tool. One of the best one used in the market recently. A must recommended product for the analysts and dashboard users.

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

I had used the tool to create some testing result reports recently. Though I am not from BI background but I was really able to develop a full dashboard within a span of an hour which was really amazing. This tells the power of self service BI and particularly this tool

"Affordable but not so good solution"

What do you like best?

We have been looking for a convenient platform for the integration of our data in the region. Unfortunately, all found variants did not suit us with their capabilities or their price. We think , that Panorama Necto will be best choice, at least for today. But it did not meet expectations. Despite its cheapness, it is still crude and unsuitable tools for the real needs.

What do you dislike?

Two main problems of this platform are insufficient support of big data and lack of Linux versions. There are certain problems with finding the solution of more complex tasks due to lack of the analytic modules.

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

This app is very easy to use and also proposes a lot variety of features.

But it is useless for our company.

"Best BI Tool for Data Discovery and Visualization with more flexibility and user friendly features"

What do you like best?

As there are many BI tools in market now-a-days but Panorama Necto 14 stands with an exceptionally outstanding features and user friendly configuration setup, which is an important key factor for BI developers and data experts in current scenario. I personally use this tool for designing my reports, dashboards, scatters, bloxplot, charts, graphs and many more. My team and I both feel that Necto has created a remarkable benchmark in area of BI tools and services.

When you talk about BI, all you mostly care about data and its visualization. The reports tell a lot about how, when, where and why the things are happening around and which can directly impact you business, so it is very important to be precise, accurate and presentable.

Necto 14 is one of the BI tools fulfilling all the current business expectations of an organization and as well as customers in better data visualization, effective analysis, interactive dashboards and meaningful outcomes.

Necto 14 has also good features of working over multiple databases like SQL Server, Oracle, and Sybase etc which make it more scalable and flexible to process and manage you data throughout different data platforms. Also user can interact, share, and discuss various dashboard and info graphics data.

Not only that it also provide extensibility to mobile devices and tablets which make it one of the market ruler now-a-days providing location based searches, maps, geospatial data analysis etc. This gives an added advantage over other BI tools.

What do you dislike?

Product Support is not that good as expected, hope they are working to make it better.

Scalability among different platform like Windows, MAC, blackberry etc is not available. Linux installation is pretty time consuming.

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

Reporting, BI services, Interactive Dashboard creation

"Self Service BI for the masses"

What do you like best?

Simple UI to display large data sets, ease of administration of workboards and Modelling functionality

What do you dislike?

Lack of HTML 5, poor documentation around available API's, UI a bit outdated, Modelling Function back end Tabular requirements are not great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Out of the box this is a powerful, easy to setup suite. the modelling functionality is good, but needs refinement. If you have bad data standardization practices already, no product will save you but this will ease some of that pain with modelling.

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

Multiple business units looking at differing data sets that are reconciled and then displayed via 1 UI. 1 lot of training for all users of varied data perspectives, be it HR, finance or Clinical.

"One of the best data discovery tool"

What do you like best?

The things I like most is that it supports variety of charts, I was quite bored with my previous BI tool which mostly support bar, line an pie chart. I can now create more meaningful charts radar, doughnut, pareto, scatter, range, point boxplot etc.

Matchless click to collaborate features, initiate discussion on data points and context, connect relevant users and dashboards and explore suggestive auto insight.The tool is also very easy to use, we got on premise training from Panorama, within days we were novice enough to play with the tool. Exception error handling and conditional notification to stakeholder is a nice feature offered in this tool.

What do you dislike?

The dashboard also looks bit complicated and loaded with loads with lots of gadgets at first look. No personal edition for installation on Windows home edition. Limited support for big data analytics

Recommendations to others considering the product

Self service BI, data discovery, automation, Collaborative business intelligence

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

Panorama helped us to replace costly BI tools and bring down the licensing cost and made tool available to more users.
