ITCS user

It provides management with a clear, concise, one source of truth and progress of business in one snapshot, but it should allow support for multiple languages as we have South American offices.
ITCS user

Consultant
We've been able to off-load the task of reports/charts/dashboards demanded by our business managers, but there is very limited documentation available for it.

What other advice do I have?

I would strongly recommend this tool to those who possess data but do not know how to proceed with it, i.e. what type of charts/dashboards they should generate to visualize data more effectively. You just give your data to this tool, and then it will give you concise views of the insights that you and other stakeholders are interested in.
ITCS user

The tool can automate the process of analyzing information and provides a self-service data discovery that automates much of the data analysis process, but there are limitations for big data analysis.

It's become quite simple in presenting data on the dashboard, but I feel scheduling is not that simple.

What other advice do I have?

If your data sources are many and ETL consumes a lot of your time, go for Panorama Necto. With its automation, your work becomes simple.
ITCS user

Consultant
We never faced a performance-based issue with databases once we started working with it, but it would be very effective if interfaces and dashboards support large volumes of data.

What other advice do I have?

Considering all aspects of price or features or comfort working with it, it is the best. Take a chance and try it. It's worth it.
ITCS user

In our organization, we use a lot of charts and this solution has various kinds that serve our purposes. However, the dashboard is a bit clumsy.

What other advice do I have?

For data discovery, it actually minimized the dependency on IT, but I don't think it would support data analytics if the data set is really very big.

What other advice do I have?

Definitely, it is a very good tool to use or BI people. Try it once.

The data analysis feature and other analytic tools helped us drill down to the root cause of a problem and helped us find a solution, but it should support operating systems other than Windows.

The infographics provide data visualization, but its support and functionality for Mac OS X could be improved.

What is most valuable?

Infographics are totally cool. Visualization of data in a more attractive way to users.

Our North American enterprise was able to use interactive infographics to dynamically reflect business changes, but community support needs improvement.

It can connect to any data source, but it's lacking Linux-Unix support.

(1) A fully web based BI tool (2) 95% covers the requirements of Self Service BI & Ad hoc Reporting (3) Better Visualization Components (4) Easy UI (5) Easy Data Acquisition

Necto looks promising & very good choice for small and medium size company, handling of large data volume might be bit challenging

What other advice do I have?

I would like to make one comment to the user community - if you are looking for powerful tool which can support large scale databases and BigData Analytics, Necto is NOT an option. Please refrain from using it.
