Necto works in synch with SQL 2012, allowing companies with multiple data sources to easily incorporate the platform for the development of broader analyses that include large amounts of data. Necto's in tandem with SQL 2012 enables easier management of "big data" through Necto's ability to shorten the timeframe from data collection to ultimately analysis-based decisions. It can also handle constantly evolving data sets. SQL 2012 integration ensures a massive volume of big data can be handled with considerable accuracy.

Partners and customers that desire to integrate Necto into their current environments can utilize a new SDK package that was released with SP2 that includes a set of comprehensive API's. Necto features an open design that allows it to be extended and adapted for clients' specific needs.

"Service Pack 2 is the next evolution of our leading social BI platform that adds in the capabilities of SQL 2012 and big data analysis," said said Eynav Azarya, CEO of Panorama Software. "We made Necto a truly social platform that uses the actions and results of the group to provide insights for the individual user. Our SDK makes it even easier for our partners to integrate Necto into their native systems, allowing them to reap the benefits of social BI in concert with their environments."

The new release enables integration with Microsoft Lync for users that are conducting socially-focused BI in real time. Additional tools were also added that enhance Necto's social capabilities including enhanced methods for searching for users and impersonation that aid in contextual discovery.
