One of the best self service BI tools. Real fun to use and explore

I highly recommend this tool for any business that wishes for quicker and qualitative analysis of their data. This tool is hosted over web and can connect to any industry standard backend packages that we know. It is really intelligent enough to manage the metadata and hence giving a wider and more intuitive options to use the data for creating charts and graphs. You can do everything that you wish through simply drag and drop and few clicks. This makes a user to understand the data really quick and in a more efficient manner. Everything is quick, easy and intuitive to develop, be it a simple bar graph that gives category wise measures or a trend analysis of historical data or a gauge to understand the thresholds, anything. The best part is that it a very simple mechanism to share the analysis and invite others to contribute to it. A collaborative BI platform in real sense. Its ability to treat and visualize the data is simply amazing and there might be countable such options available currently apart from Necto. Slicing and dicing of data is really quick. It also provides customizable text area to place the interesting insights. I have worked on several tools before but Necto is a real game changer. It would be amazing to see what new features it evolves with. Again a highly recommended tool for holistic and self-service BI. Connects to any data (most backend packages as per industry standards) Understands the nature of data and the metadata really well. Treats the data on the fly and creates smart visualizations. Creates basic data arrangements easily without waiting for the users to instruct. For an example, given a date field it creates a calendar hierarchy by default. Comes with lot of option to modify and build the smart infographic. Uses innovative pictures and charts to create the dashboards Provides a centrally hosted collaborative platform to share your work to a wider audience but only of your choice. The role based access is really amazing It has smart computing abilities to deliver some of the complex analytical requirements such as what-if analysis, pinpointing the actual issues and side by side comparison of business factors. Helps you identify why you are succeeding and where you should shift your focus to. The maps are amazing and they just don’t act as control points rather you can populate various measures on them making it really efficient to understand the business in geographical info graph All in all a really great tool to work on and absolute value for money.

I have been evaluating tools within our organization to be suggested to different clients which are less technical and more business user oriented for fast first hand analytics. I came across one such tool with the name Necto. I was thrilled with the capabilities of astonishingly ready to build and simplified, modern and in-cell infographics that can be used by just right clicking on the attributes. Another feature that I think stood out in this tool is of it being suggestive which leads to automated analysis and recommendations. I also observed that it uses crowdsourcing to recommend workboards. This tool also gives a feature of it being collaborative in decision making experience wherein one can directly connect with the associates within the enterprise from within the tool.

I am into research and development on Business Intelligence tools and I totally believe that Panorama Necto 14 is a “socially enabled” business intelligence solution, allowing users to track not only the business data collected, but interdepartmental conversations occurring over the BI system itself. By tracking and analyzing those conversations. Necto provides suggestions on possible collaborations between team members. Comments made in the BI system are integrated as metadata attached to the intelligence being discussed. Team members are able to share data and figures in real-time between different departments, streamlining the process for any operation from identifying and remedying a sales shortfall to tracking inventory. Panorama Necto 14 on the other hand is built to support social collaboration so that its analytics features can be shared to improve decision making by incorporating various organizational inputs. Additionally it supports an infographic display for information review which is unlike most of its competitors. Business users can use Panorama Necto 14’s self-service data discovery and visualization capability to uncover hidden insight, present vital data, and track performance using interactive Mainly when we talk about Panorama Necto 14 pros i should write on following: Panorama Necto 14 has Built-in social BI capabilities which is amazing. where Panorama Necto 14 feature is really befitting like Contextual & suggestive data and search results Panorama Necto 14 has best of Data Discovery and Enterprise BI with a unified web-based UI Data mash-up in one view is important advantage of Panorama Necto 14 Panorama Necto 14 provides self-service modelling and self-service analytics for all user types It has single point of contact for data management with dynamic dashboards & interactive UI

We are using this tool for self service data discovery for quite some time. It also supports loads of info graphics which enrich dashboard’s visual appeal. 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. The customer service is very responsive, they answers our queries. I saw lot of people complaining about lack of community forum, but they do have a forum which is quite active. The tool is very easy to use, with click you can import data and create the visualizations. The things like I most 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, donought, pareoto, scatter, range, point, boxplot etc. Good geo analytics support, readily integrate with maps and plots the charts. Good in memory performance, return results with clicks. Relatively good performance

The management of our company has set a few goals for the Analytics and Reporting team and one of them is to find the best front-end tool for our business users. We are trying to get the load off the developers and provide the business users with the tool for self service BI. We have been evaluating a couple of the solutions present on the market and found Necto very innovative with some unique and useful features. Ability to collaborate with other users by sharing content, starting discussions, subscribing to users, searching for the relevant content. Automatic identification of exceptions in the data and automated insights including root cause analysis. Mobile application provides the users the same experience on any device. This is great for the executives who travel a lot and are often in the meetings.
