I used this tool for a regional sales dashboard and I confirm that it is one of the best data discovery BI tools I have ever used.
What I extremely appreciate is that the tool is easy to use, and with a simple click you can import data from multiple sources to build visualizations. It's very intuitive and very good for interactive analytics.
Also, Panorama Necto has excellent in-memory performance.
Improvements to My Organization:
This BI tool helps to limit the dependency on IT for data discovery in the company. It's very much a self-service BI tool.
Room for Improvement:
It is only able to be installed on Windows, and they should offer a Linux-based version as well. Also, the big data technology support is also very limited.
I would also appreciate it if there would be a personal edition that I can install on Windows Home Edition for my client to assess the product. The free edition is the only one that allows the client to connect to a Necto server in the cloud, It is not possible to install the full Necto solution (client and server) in the Home Edition of Windows.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
