New Paradigms Aimed at Bringing More Users to BI, Aiding Relational Reporting and Easing On-Premise and Cloud Collaboration
TORONTO, ON – June 25, 2009– Panorama Software, a global leader in proactive Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, today officially announced NovaView Version 6.0, a tightly integrated suite of web-enabled BI applications.
Like past versions, NovaView 6.0 combines the best of query and analysis, formatted reporting, performance dashboards, KPI scorecards, modeling, advanced visualization and automated report distribution. New deployment wizards and applications, as well as a more robust platform designed to bring more users to business intelligence, promise NovaView 6.0 will be Panorama’s biggest release ever.
“We are thrilled to announce a new version of NovaView to the market” said Eynav Azarya, CEO Panorama Software. “NovaView 6.0 brings new innovations to the world of BI and data analysis as well as new levels of integration with Microsoft’s BI platform. Panorama and Microsoft are tightening the partnership to deliver an end to end enterprise BI solution that combines the best of SQL Server, SharePoint, Office and NovaView into a single powerful and innovative enterprise BI solution.”
NovaView Version 6.0 features three key upgrades:
New Flash Based Analisys Application – NovaView’s new Flash Analytics client significantly increases usability for data analysis. NovaView Flash Analytics was originally developed through Panorama and Google’s partnership and included in Google Docs. The solution is currently used by more than 100,000 customers. The new client is now part of the on-premise version of NovaView
In an effort to empower casual information workers, the new solution includes self discovery for easy data navigation and exploration; on-the-spot interactive help; and animation like flashing, linking and expanding that provides hints on where to go next.
Unified Data Connector – For the first time in Panorama history, NovaView supports data stored in any source. The new Relational Data Connector offers users the ability to perform interactive data analysis on relational data just as if it was in OLAP giving relational reporting more power than ever.
The Relational Data Connector maps to any relational data source including RDBMS, Excel, CSV and existing SQL Reporting Services among others, and uses unique algorithms to model data instantly. Data sources can be as simple as a spreadsheet or as complex as SAP ERP tables.
Enhanced Collaboration Features – Panorama has combined on-premise and cloud assets into a new solution called NovaView SharedViews. Now, users can leverage Panorama NovaView for enhanced collaboration with other users inside and outside of the firewall.
With SharedViews, users can build reports in the cloud consisting of fresh data in a controlled, managed and fully interactive environment, collaborating easily with partners and suppliers that don’t have access to data inside the firewall.
