Managers looking for full business intelligence including real-time trend analysis on the go need look no further after Panorama Software announced Monday that its Necto BI 3.0 business intelligence platform is now available on Windows-based tablet PCs. The Toronto-based company said enterprise users have access to the full capabilities of Necto’s socially-enabled business intelligence platforms that seamlessly connect people, insights and data.

Mobile Deployment

'Our Necto BI 3.0 solution greatly shortens the gap between the availability of data and time to actionable insight,' said Eynav Azarya, CEO of Panorama Software. 'Deployment on the tablet allows faster and more informed decision making.'

The company said tablets empower mobile deployment of their technology and are helping to accelerate BI adoption among business users, especially as these users are increasingly performing their own analysis of KPIs, sales figures and other metrics. 

Panorama stated the availability of Necto for Windows-based tablet PCs accommodates the mass appeal of the device, pointing to the tablet as an ideal format for the software due to their large screens, extended battery life and mobility. 

Access to Data Anywhere

'Our customers are increasingly looking for new ways to enable collaboration amongst geographically dispersed and mobile work teams across the enterprise,' said Tracy Issel, general manager, Worldwide Retail Solutions Group, Microsoft Corp.  'With this release, Panorama is taking advantage of the Microsoft SQL Server platform to help enterprises empower employees with access to data and information anytime, anyplace on a variety of devices.'

Panorama Necto is among the industry’s first socially-enabled business intelligence solutions that offers a new way to connect data, insights and people in the organization. It represents a new generation of SQL Server BI 3.0 solutions that enable enterprises to leverage the power of social intelligence.

Back in May, the company announced the Necto BI solution, emphasizing its social networking strengths built on social decision making, automated relevant insights and self service. Now the technology has gone mobile, further enhancing collaboration and availability to BI metrics not just within the enterprise, but anywhere. 

The Necto comprehensive suite includes Analytics, Smart Reporting, Workboards, Social Decision Making, Visuals, Search and an Intelligent BI Engine, all with seamless integration to Microsoft SharePoint.
