Panorama has come out with quite a handful of products or product features that works with powerpivot and microsoft office 2010. After going through the features that Novaview offers for leveraging the capabilities of Microsoft Powerpivot, I particularly feel interested with the Universal Data Connector capabilities of NovaView, as it can hook into a variety of data sources ranging from Excel to SAP ERP tables.
My equation might not be precise, but from my initial grazing on the Parorama's datasheets and whitepapers, I have summarized my understanding in a single equation. And as it is said that "Keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer", I like keeping a watch on other competitive (I mean to say Partnering) products. And if you adopt the same philosophy, check out these panorama's integration with microsoft business intelligence whitepapers from here, and one another great source of information that is more precisely banged on target is a post on Ella Maschiach's BI Blog.
