Panorama Gets Help From Google In Upgrade Of Web-Enabled BI Apps

A new Google Apps client includes a Flash-based analysis application that uses Google Docs in presenting an intuitive user interface that allows casual information workers to navigate through large amounts of data to generate business insights.

Panorama Software has upgraded its suite of Web-enabled business intelligence applications with an interactive user interface that leverages Google Apps and the ability to perform interactive data analysis on relational data.

NovaView version 6.0, like previous versions, combines query and analysis, formatted reporting, performance dashboard, KPI scorecards, modeling, visualization and automated report distribution. The latest iteration is designed to bring more users to BI, Panorama said.

The Google Apps client includes a Flash-based analysis application that uses Google Docs in presenting an intuitive user interface that allows casual information workers to navigate through large amounts of data to generate business insights. Google Apps support was available to NovaView version 5.5 users through a service pack.

Panaorma also uses Google Apps' spreadsheets within NovaView version 6.0's new SharedViews to make it possible for customers and partners to share reports by simply clicking on a button. NovaView then rebuilds the report and pushes it to Google, which makes it available through Google Apps.

Because NovaView reports are tied to Panorama's Web-based OLAP engine, users also can create dashboards and display them in iGoogle, which is the Web portal's customizable homepage.

Besides its work with Google Apps, Panorama has also improved integration with Microsoft BI products. "Panorama and Microsoft are tightening the partnership to deliver an end to end enterprise BI solution that combines the best of SQL Server, SharePoint, Office and NovaView into a single powerful and innovative enterprise BI solution," Eynan Azarya, chief executive of Panorama, said in a statement.

The relational data connector lets users perform interactive data analysis on relational data as if it was in OLAP. The connector maps to any relational data source, including a relational database management system, Excel, CSV and existing SQL reporting services. The technology uses specially developed algorithms to model data quickly.

Panorama plans to hold an online launch event on Tuesday for the NovaView upgrade. Panorama unveiled release candidate one of NovaView version 6.0 in March.
