Enterprise Users on Socially-Enabled BI Platform can Dynamically View and Manage Data – Necto Combines Social Media and Automated Insights for Windows Tablet Users
Toronto, ON (October 24, 2011) – Panorama Software, a global leader in proactive Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, announced a breakthrough today as its BI 3.0 solution, Panorama Necto, became one of the first SQL Server business intelligence platforms available on Windows-based tablet PCs. Enterprise users can now access the full capabilities of Necto, one of the industry’s first socially-enabled business intelligence platforms that seamlessly connects people, insights, and data for real-time trend analysis.
Panorama has made Necto for Windows-based tablet PCs available to accommodate the mass appeal of the device, which is accelerating BI adoption among business users. Tablets are optimal as a mobile business analytics platform due to their larger screens, extended battery life, and portability.
Business tablet users are increasingly performing their own investigation into KPIs, sales figures, and other metrics without the help of internal analysts. Increased adoption of Necto in an enterprise spurs users to interact more deeply with the data and promotes a growing body of collective business knowledge shaped by both data and social insights.
“By introducing Necto for tablet devices, we are giving business users the ability to access rich data at a glance that can be immediately shared with team members or partners,” said Eynav Azarya, CEO of Panorama Software. “Our Necto BI 3.0 solution greatly shortens the gap between the availability of data and time to actionable insight. Deployment on the tablet allows faster and more informed decision making, which will allow businesses to thrive in an increasingly competitive and global marketplace.”
“Our customers are increasingly looking for new ways to enable collaboration amongst geographically dispersed and mobile work teams across the enterprise,” said Tracy Issel, general manager, Worldwide Retail Solutions Group, Microsoft Corp. “With this release, Panorama is taking advantage of the Microsoft SQL Server platform to help enterprises empower employees with access to data and information anytime, anyplace on a variety of devices.”
Panorama Necto is among the industry’s first socially-enabled Business Intelligence solutions that offers a new way to connect data, insights, and people in the organization. It represents a new generation of SQL Server BI 3.0 solutions that enable enterprises to leverage the power of Social Intelligence to gain insights more quickly, more efficiently, and with greater relevancy.
