BI Innovator to Elevate PowerPivot into a Full Comprehensive BI Solution that is Enterprise Ready

TORONTO, ON (April 21, 2010) – Panorama Software, a global leader in proactive Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced the launch of NovaView for PowerPivot, a comprehensive business intelligence suite built on top of the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 PowerPivot platform that revolutionizes the BI market with its managed self-service BI capability and in-memory engine. Panorama NovaView for PowerPivot, part of the NovaView for Office 2010 release, adds unique dimensions and capabilities to the PowerPivot platform, making it easier to use, more functional and enterprise ready.

NovaView for PowerPivot brings unique self-service BI capabilities like intuitive web interface, advanced analytics and a data level security layer, providing new ways for analysts and information workers to generate impactful insights and make better decisions. By natively connecting to the PowerPivot in-memory models, Panorama NovaView enables users to perform even more sophisticated analysis, including smart exceptions, instant calculations, data formatting and much more. With Panorama for PowerPivot, information workers can build pixel perfect reports, create executive dashboards or deliver insights directly to their Microsoft Office Outlook application, elevating it to a complete BI solution for the Microsoft’s new in-memory platform.

To enable a secured web-based team and departmental collaboration, Panorama NovaView provides a data security layer on top of PowerPivot models, thus enhancing its enterprise-readiness and making Panorama NovaView the only BI application that offers the same set of BI tools for OLAP, relational and in-memory (PowerPivot) data sources.

“Over the last couple of years, in-memory business intelligence has gotten a lot of traction,” said Eynav Azarya, CEO of Panorama Software. “Microsoft PowerPivot is the ultimate platform for managed self-service BI. With the latest integration of NovaView for PowerPivot, organizations are now able to get the most out of this new in-memory platform and extend it with a self-service BI suite that can satisfy the needs of the most advanced users as well as the broader information worker community. ”

“For the last 14 years, Panorama has been a strategic Microsoft partner and continually adds innovation on top of the Microsoft platform,” said  Claude Lorenson, director of SQL Server marketing at Microsoft Corp.“This new release will bring to market an end-to-end BI solution that combines the best of Microsoft SQL Server, Office Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 with Panorama’s NovaView suite, and will ultimately transform the landscape of business intelligence as we know it.”
