Panorama Necto Review: "Panaromic View in the BI Landscape - Panaroma Necto - Intuitive and Cost Effective Data Discovery Tool"
- Ease of use and getting started.
- More end user centric.This reduces cost of training to the end user.
- This is a very scalable tool and support the growing IT needs of a small to mid scale company.

- Exception error handling is a nice feature in this tool which makes it stand apart from other similar BI Tools.

- Provided that Panorama Necto is relatively an entrant in the BI industry, I think more support groups and forums should be available as it becomes more mature.
- Integration to big data and analytics.
- Personal edition should be available in Windows Home Version which will facilitate more research and evaluation.
2) Will the tool be used by multiple business end users? - If yes, then this tool hits the target with its ease of use and its centered around end users effectively.
3) Is the business looking to shift into Big Data Capabilities? - If yes, provided that Big Data integration is at its entrant phase for Panorama, it would take some time to integrate.
- The tool is extremely easy to use, you can import data and create the visualizations with a click.
- We were able to build a collaborative business intelligence solution, we replaced clients existing process of predictive analysis and forecasting, and provided a solution based on Necto with a lot ease.
- It is more inclined towards the end-user with easy to use options and is not much of a developer centric tool.
- Gives IT more power to govern and manage the platform with ease, on the other hand it is equally powerful for business users.
- The thing which I was expecting and is not available as of now was a personal edition for installation on Windows home edition that can come handy when practicing and training other users; I hope they plan to provide that to us soon.
- Second thing is the limited support for big data analytics, this again is not very critical at the moment but it is a good to have functionality, and soon once the users are familiar with the basic analysis they will start looking for options like big data analytics etc.
- No support for Linux or commodity hardware.
- Highly infographic tool with plenty of options to select from charts or map. Seamless collaboration capability and support for iOS, Android and windows makes it a very powerful new age self service BI tool
- It's exception error handling and conditional notification feature make the tool unique compared to others. This feature is not easily available in any other self service BI tools.

- The work boards are a great way to provide the management a clear, concise, one source of truth and progress of business in one snapshot. The drill down capabilities allow the business users to analyze and gain insights. It lets business users spend more time on analyzing data rather than collecting and creating reports.
- The feature to find people and chat with the concerned user right from the report window adds a great value and reduces the pain of emails going back and forth among users.
- Necto should allow support of multiple languages as this has been the major issue we have came across as we have offices in various South American countries.
