  • (Going through the bullets) Here is one quote I real likeThe two reasons why I love this quote are:It clearly states that we are different than everything else in the market, and to be honest, as innovators in BI, we believe that most of the other tools are “broken” and old fashioned. Second, Insight is aimed at Business users… not just IT. as IT organizations our role is not “to keep up with the business”, but to “lead the business” and anticipate their needs before their even arise. With Necto, IT organizations give business users the tools to improve their operations…
  • We have customers across multiple industries from FS, manufacturing, retail to healthcare, telco and others. And I’m sure you recognize a lot of brand names here. The usage of Necto is also wide, So for example Citi group use us to consolidate massive amount of financial data and provide insightful dashboard for their corporate customers. UBS use us for Risk management (such as market risk, credit risk and even operational risk)Dell uses us for their maintenance programs in an extranet environment, And Philiphsmorris… just want to sell you more cigarettes… and have you smoke some more So to offset that, we cater the larget health provider in Australia, Queensland health, to analyze their services provided to millions of users… 
  • To understand that – let’s have a look at the biggest BI challenge companies facing today:IT still relies on standards-based Corporate BI to control the single version of the truth. They still do all the analysis, generate reports and then distribute them to business users. But the information is changing so quickly and the decision window is getting smaller and smaller, so business users demand more control and they are looking at different data discovery tools that can offer them easy data exploration, visualization and collaboration. And when they go find those separate data discovery tools, what happens is that they create different islands of information that exist in silos and cannot be shared with other departments, creating a big mess that’s difficult for IT to manage and control.
  • Panorama Necto bridges the gap between Corporate BI and Data Discovery and brings the best of both worlds.On one hand, it’s a scalable, robust, and secure BI solution and on the other hand – it allow users the flexibility and agility that Data Discovery tools offer.
  • How do we do that? By giving users a Business Intelligence 3.0 solution that enables them to perform all their BI activities – data modeling, analysis, dashboarding, collaboration – though a single web based UI.By empowering each user with the best tools, Panorama Necto dramatically improves the speed, performance and the quality of work that needs to be accomplished at each step of the decision making process – Connect, Explore Collaborate.
  • Necto has a unique recommendation engine that tracks, analyzes and creates links between data, user profiles, user interests and other user behaviors. Based on these patterns, Necto suggests relevant information automatically to users, helping them to:- Find relevant data through Relevant Recommendations at the modeling level- It helps users Explore relevant insights through automated insights, cause and effect scenarios and recommendations- And it enables Collaboration with the right people: Necto’s Find people capability helps users in large organizations find people relevant to the issue and collaborate with them in context
  • Today BI is used mostly on your corporate BI data. This is good …but can be much better . Data exists in many shape and forms within you organization,: Unstructured, semi-structured , relational and more. Using all this data, will significantly enhance the ability of any organization to provide better analysis and ultimately better business decisions. The Datawatch –Panorama solution allows us to use any data source for BI purposes.So not only that we consolidate the different data source into an holistic in-memory model, we also transform the data into a very insightful process of decision making,
  • So the architecture is very simple. You guys already know Datawatch very well. you might connected to PDF reports, or to static reports coming out of your SAP R3 deployment. Now we urge you to connect also to other reports which are coming from BI systems like Cognos, Business Objects and make them super interactive and insightful with Necto. Also, as Necto provides relationals connectors to any data source, and a full in-memory modeling capacity, any business user can connect to the DW originated data, as well as other data source and mash them up on the fly to drive business decisions. To botton line: Datawatch –Panorama solution will allow you to use any corporate data from any source and make it interactive – all the in one single workboard
  • Let’s take a look at a customer’s work board ( go over the date sources)Now, let’s take a closer look at a customer that implemented the solution recently. The customer, big Insurance company operating out of Europe and the middle east, was straggling to provide its management team the data needed for the weekly management meeting . The data included regulator data (which was provided in PDF) , claims information that comes from BO report ( using DW) HR info from EXCEL and other such as real time information published in the web So they used DW to connect to all the semi structured data like the PDF reports from the regulator and the BOBJ reports coming from the SAP R/3 and they used Necto to mash it up with data coming from relational and OLAP data sources. They put it all in one-model and created a single workboard with “one version of the truth”. Now, the management gets a very interactive and insightful data and can collaborate to make better decisions.
  • So to sum up todays presentations, with Necto – you can give your users self-service capabilities to move faster from data to action, yet in secure environment that is managed by IT. With contextual discovery and guided analytics, you help users focus on the relevant, which is becoming more & more important as the data is growing exponentially and users are drowning in it. By deploying a Collaborative BI – you crowdsource your decisions which greatly increases the quality and speed of decisions and makes BI much more impactful and even viral.
  • With that, let me switch gears and invite Mr. James Baker, Customer Success Manager with Panorama Software, to give you a quick demo of the latest release of Panorama Necto and its capabilities.
