Panorama Necto Review

We're able to create many different types of meaningful charts, but the cloud version hangs for unknown reasons.

Valuable Features

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.

Improvements to My Organization

Mostly empowered business users with data handling capabilities and helped to lower capex cost.

Room for Improvement

I think publishing and scheduling can be a bit simplified.

No personal edition for installation on Windows home edition.

Use of Solution

More than a year

Deployment Issues

I don't know.

Stability Issues

Sometimes cloud version hangs, but this could be due to issues in network firewall, so not sure. The root cause is still unknown.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Very good.

Technical Support:

Very good.

Previous Solutions

Yes, we were using a leading BI tool, but Necto came for less than half of the cost with more features.

Initial Setup

Installation was very smooth as we had on-premise support.

Implementation Team

In-house with help from Panorama support guys.


Almost reduced BI tool licensing cost by half, but this comes with cost of new tool learning curve.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Yes, they can try this.

Other Solutions Considered

We did couple of options like Sisense, Pyramid, etc.
