Necto Software


 

Panorama Necto is an end-to-end business intelligence (BI) suite that is designed to work in tandem with any data source—OLAP, spreadsheets, relational and in-memory. OLAP technology was developed originally by Panorama and later acquired by Microsoft; Panorama is the only BI solution that is designed specifically for the Microsoft platform. 

It suits midsized and enterprise-level companies, works across all major industries and can be deployed both on-premise or as a Web-based solution. The Necto suite is built upon three core pillars: advanced analytics, social BI and automated relevant insights. These applications work together in a self-service mode to create a socially enabled BI solution, helping companies both analyze and understand users' behavior in order to gain insights into operational problems as well as potential opportunities.

The system automatically tracks users' interests and how they interact with company data and then, based on these interests, suggests connections with colleagues. 

 

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS, Web browser (OS agnostic), Windows 8, Windows 10

It is simple and easy to use, non experience users can do visualizations in a fast way, data discovery becomes natural with necto, it has interesting features but one that I liked the most was the social or collaborations you can do

Likes Least

If you don't have a backend well structured (ETL) it will be kind of difficult to begin with, you have to work on your data alignment first and then use necto only as a front end, for some users or organizations this can be a problem. Before I started to use it some colleague said android integration was a problem but did not experienced that

Recommendations

Keep in mind how is your data modeling and how well is your ETL because to do quick visualizations with necto it is better to have an structure simple source to read otherwise you will end up spending lots of time to do your dashboard app

What I like the most about Necto is a self-service Product – it employs both basic and advanced analytic features. Any user can create dashboards and visualizations within a secure and single application connecting multiple sources in just few clicks.

Likes Least

This product has not good portability, is not compatible with some other Systems like Mac and the fact that it doesn't support Predictive analytics features.

Recommendations

Each Business Intelligence software has good features, some of them have great capabilities, for that reason Users need to evaluate what features and functions the right software must have, as a user, Panorama Necto can satisfy the basic need when you're looking for a BI tool.

Certainly this product has tons of amazing features. We liked most is its collaborative and supportive business intelligence capability. Due to collaborative environment, we can easily get/share feedback on reports from each other.

It also supports ton of info graphics which enrich dashboard’s visual appeal and it's visualization capability is amazing.

We were bit worried about community support as it is new BI tool in the market but they do have a forum which is quite active so we can get instant helps from the experts.

Panorama Necto fulfills most of our requirements but still there are few areas of improvement like it will be great if Necto provides more options to connect BIG data, provides support for linux environment, upload more video tutorials on youtube or on their sites etc.

Apart from that we are extremely happy by using this product.

Recommendations

We highly recommend Necto to business users who are in search of full fledged BI tools within their budget. Panorama Necto is less expensive as compared to other BI tools.

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.

It has very easy and fluent slicing and dicing techniques through the usage of parameters and uses smart infographics to depict the story of business. Color legends and application of it in various infographics makes it much easier to show the success factors and the pain areas in the business. It was really amazing to see the interactive use of advanced infographics such as maps and icon based measure representation. The role based access is really amazing and allows a user to share his work and collaborate with only the chosen audience. One of the highly sought after requirements in any BI tool, but in Necto it is only a matter of few clicks.

Need to excel in handling bigdata. It can really have some more advance data modelling interfaces which would make it more efficient. Apart from these two, the product is quite good and a good decision to venture into

I would like to say a superb approach to Business Intelligence. Necto is a pro in daily emerging market with below features:
1.) Vivid Infographics - provides user a lot of flexibility to display variations in data
2.) Heterogeneous Sources - multiple source type support makes it more adaptable
3.) Human Language - Natural language processing is the latest in market query technology and it makes Necto easy to use
4.) Social Blink - collaborative decision by a group within a BI tool, just in time

There is more in the box to offer such as exception handling, stylish dashboard for business KPI's, suggestive analysis and real time data support and on the go web accessibility etc.

I am into the process to suggest a nice BI tool our management team wherein I am looking for different BI tools available in the market.

Certainly, Necto is good at:
Infographics
Multiple database connections,
Security
It has nice social features which can give context based discussions & search for users and relevant content within the system
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.

I am disappointed at following points
-No BigData talks
-Predictive analytics looks little immature

Nowadays everybody is going towards BigData & in this scenario, if any tool falls short in this ternimologies then its a red signal for all of us.

Recommendations

If users are concerned with large scale queries OR BigData technology then I don't recommend this tool

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.

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.

Recommendations

Please do go through the demo version of the tool certainly and I am sure you will be impressed

Subscribing and following any users during collaboration is like twitter. It stores all discussions like a chart history that works like a problem solving tool for any executive.

Recommendations

Building a workboard and sharing among portal users is easy. Info-graphics are unique, and it visualize presenting capability is impressive. It provides lots of automated analysis and recommendation that are very helpful for business decision making process. It is less-friendly, if you want to use direct SQL query and Non-English Lagrange in reports.

We have been evaluating several of the solutions present on the market looking for the best front-end tools for our business users, and Necto has caught our attention because of some great innovative features.

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

Necto automatically identifies exceptions in the data and marks them in order to warn the user. Also, it offers automated insights and potential root causes. I find this a very useful and proactive behavior.

One of the features that is very exciting for me and my colleagues is the capability to collaborate with other users by sharing content, starting discussions, subscribing to users, searching for the relevant content.

Support for mobile devices is very good and 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.
