Panorama and Google Apps · 07/10/2008 04:00 PM, Analysis

Panorama is a great BI tool which is most associated with Microsoft, as they developed the version of OLAP which is now built into SQL Server. They market a suite called the “NovaView” toolset, which includes the usual reporting, dashboard, etc. stuff, but they’ve been around long enough to forge their own approach.

They’ve continued to create BI and visualization tools, and they’ve now created an iGoogle Widget which brings some basic BI (Pivot Tables and Pivot Graphs) to the Google Spreadsheet.

This is a clever idea to provide your services to the tail market. It also reminds us that, besides the constant upgrade of features that Google builds into the apps, others are also working to create the future of the “office” online experience.

PS:
While you are there, check out their SaaS OLAP Engine PowerApps which is the back end of the Google widget, as well as their link for integrating Google with you in house SQL Server OLAP/Analysis Services system
