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.

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:

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.

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.

Likes Least

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

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.

Don’t worry if you have multiple databases, my client’s had diverse databases and were present in multiple geographies to our utter surprise it was really easy to get hold of all the datasets and adding to Necto, within a couple of days my client had a development environment available to start the analysis on their data. 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.

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.

Eye catching info graphics, image bank, numerous chart options and functionality for slicing and dicing, amazing recommendation engine which can give more insights to users.

Gives IT more power to govern and manage the platform with ease, on the other hand it is equally powerful for business users.

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.

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.

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.
