What is most valuable?
We have been using this tool for self-service data discovery.
The tool is quite easy to use and we got on-premise training from Panorama.
I like their customer service and the tech support guys are very responsive.
I saw lot of people complaining about lack of community forum, but they do have a forum that is quite active.
The things like I most it supports variety of charts, I was quite bored with my previous BI tool which mostly support bar, line, and pie chart. I can now create more meaningful charts radar, doughnut, pareto, scatter, range, point, boxplot, etc.
How has it helped my organization?
Mostly empowered business users with data handling capabilities and helped to lower capex cost.
What needs improvement?
I think publishing and scheduling can be a bit simplified.
No personal edition for installation on Windows home edition.
For how long have I used the solution?
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
Sometimes cloud version hangs, but this could be due to issues in network firewall, so not sure. The root cause is still unknown.
How are customer service and technical support?
Very good. Technical Support
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
Yes, we were using a leading BI tool, but Necto came for less than half of the cost with more features.
How was the initial setup?
Installation was very smooth as we had on-premise support.
What about the implementation team?
In-house with help from Panorama support guys.
What was our ROI?
Almost reduced BI tool licensing cost by half, but this comes with cost of new tool learning curve.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
We did couple of options like Sisense, Pyramid, etc.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
