Panorama Industry-Specific Solutions
A lot of people, me included, have been wondering what the future holds for Panorama after the Proclarity acquistion. Well it looks like Microsoft have tried to make amends in the form of a partnership to develop industry-specific BI applications:
There’ll be solutions for retail, credit management, manufacturing and other areas. Quite apart from the fact that the new apps will be nice to have, I’m glad that Panorama hasn’t been left to sink – it has some good products and the diversity of the MS BI client tool ecosystem has always been one of its strengths in my opinion, so anything that Microsoft can do to maintain that diversity should be welcomed.
