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

Reviewed on 2015/08/03
Review Source

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

Ability to handle bigdata and advance data modelling capbilities.

Social Features

Necto's supports ability to subscribe to users via social features. Users can initiate context-based discussions, and search for users and relevant content within the system. it maintains and provides its own security mechanism but integrates with Active Directory (AD), third-party authentication tools, and in-house custom security mechanisms.

Subscribing to users.
Necto gives Twitter like feeling. We can subscribe to users in Necto. Subscribing to one of our colleagues lets us follow all the changes made to his or her workboard. Because you can view users' shared workboards, you can concentrate on those that are active. Subscribing is easy. You just need to click a person in the social bar, then click the Subscribe icon. A second click will unsubscribe you.

Users can start context-based discussions. include context and annotations, which are saved as part of the workboard to add more depth and foster knowledge sharing.

Cons

Shortcomings

As Panorama Necto works heavily with Microsoft, its platform is not compatible with Macs. Also, its functionality is not supported for Blackberry devices. Also, it does not support multiple languages, as well as profit and predictive analysis features.

Note that Panorama does not offer in-person training or online chat support.

Its a Incredible BI tool for data Exploration and Visualization.Business users are quite happy using Necto due to its ease of use and supportive business intelligence feature.

Pros

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.

Cons

Performance in case of huge datasets needs to be further analyzed.

A good application for basic analysts but more advanced features needs to be released by the vendor for power users in coming versions.

Cost of implementing multiple analytical tools for different sect of users should be considered.

Technical documentaion needs to be evolved with time.

New generation of Business Intelligence trend with “socially enabled” business intelligence solution

Reviewed on 2015/07/14
Review Source

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
