Panorama X overview

Panorama X combines the best elements of database and spreadsheet technology into a single package, making it an unparalleled tool for working with and analyzing any kind of information. Like a spreadsheet, Panorama X is RAM based for speed and flexibility, but with all of the data processing power of a full-blown database application and more. Panorama provides incredible performance when sorting, searching, performing analysis, and even when doing complete data restructuring. Even if a database already contains tens of thousand of records, Panorama X can quickly conquer tasks like shifting misaligned data, splitting or merging fields, correcting mis-formatted or improperly capitalized data, search and replace, phonetic searches or even searching with a formula or regular expression. It's like a Swiss Army knife for your data!

What’s new in version 10.2.0.b36

This release includes about a dozen bug fixes, including several fixes to the New Sharing Generation feature.

  • Uploading a New Generation now defaults to Non-Critical unless you check the Field Arrangement and Data Types option.
  • When uploading a new generation, the Upload Complete notification now shows the database name.
  • Panorama no longer allows security options to be changed if the database is currently shared on a server. (This never worked before, and now attempts to change security options will be ignored.)
  • Uploading a non-critical new sharing generation now works even if components of the database are encrypted.
  • Panorama now prevents you from uploading a database to a server if the database is locked to a different Panorama account than the server is using. A locked database can only be shared if the server is running with the same Panorama account as the clients.
  • Remote Clairvoyance again works correctly when a source key formula is specified rather than just a field name (it was broken in the b34 and b35 releases).
  • The Database Options>Relations Test Keys button now works even if the key is a line item field.
  • Third party channels can now be installed in the Panorama/Channels subfolder of the application support folder.
  • The Channels preference panel now displays options correctly.
  • Passing / as a folder destination to printtopdf no longer causes Panorama to hang. This problem most likely also affected other statements that are passed a destination path.
  • The Site License window now disables the Purchase button after a purchase is made, reducing the chance of a duplicate purchase. The button can be re-enabled by switching to a different panel and then back to the Payment panel.
  • Documentation corrections from Chris Watts, Peter Newble, James Cook, Thomas Cooper, Robert Ameeti, Paul Overby, David Scott.

Panorama X is, simply stated, incredible software: super-fast (RAM-based), powerful, programmable, and compatible. It is ready for any task to be thrown it's way, including meshing with iOS applications as well as scaling to millions of records. It is logical to work with and readily programmable. Form generation is straightforward. The documentation is outstanding. Video tutorials, available for purchase, are quite useful. It is now compatible with Mojave and also very stable. The software model is subscription based with the most expensive option being $15/month and the cheapest, $5/month ... for a 5 year subscription. If you don't use the license for a month, then there is no charge. I'm not aware of similar subscription pricing for such a powerful product anywhere else.

Is Panorama X still being developed and supported??

Not entirely clear.

There's nothing else like it in the Mac world that I know of. Filemaker Pro is disk based and has very slow I/O. Panorama is RAM based and very fast.

The speed is useful for manipulating large data sets (>5 million records per table).

But further enhancements to Panorama X are still needed.

Panorama X is now only offered from a subscription based model. Those who do not mind such practices will argue that it is certainly the fairest possible offering of such a model. Perhaps it is, as it will go dormant, for the months that you do not open it during your subscription period. Theoretically, this could extend the subscription period indefinitely if you are not actually using the software. This seems to be a red-herring type argument. If you are not using it, then why try to justify it's cost? Panorama is a very powerful workhorse if you are looking for a database tool. It is amazingly fast, flexible, customizable, and accurate. As others have commented here, Panorama will do things you never thought of and do them extremely quickly. When I was first introduced to Panorama it was as a tool to take a large database in a different program, dump the data into a huge text file, and then use Panorama to reorganize that data for import into a completely different database build. Panorama made short work of that task as it works in RAM memory and loads very small text based files in it’s code. I assume this has largely been continued with Panorama X but I have not actually tested Panorama X as it is now subscription only. I am happy to continue to purchase upgrades from good developers - and Provue is certainly one of them. I strongly dislike subscription based models. I will pass when it comes to monthly payments for anything other than car insurance, mortgages, phone and internet services, and health care. Software development should stand on it’s own. In an economy of free choices, I will vote with my dollars. Sorry Panorama - and sorry for me too. I really liked that program.

For people who know and use other databases I've always gotten a kick out of showing them some of Panorama's basic capabilities. For instance, easily correcting capitalization on thousands of city names; San FRancisco, san francisco, SAN FRANCISCO to San Francisco with a simple Upperword( formula. Panorama has always been full of simple solutions for what one would assume are common capabilities, but they're not common. Panorama is one of those products you can pick up and be productive with almost immediately. If you're not experienced at database design, no problem. Adding, deleting or combining fields on an existing database is a quick task and doesn't stop or slow down use of the database. As an advanced user, Panorama is nothing less than a complete programming environment for me. It's built in compiler allows me to write very advanced processes for my demanding commercial clients. From within Panorama I'm able to run shell scripts or generate and run AppleScript , Python, PHP, Ruby and Perl. My Panorama programs can receive JSON and respond in kind making firm connections with iOS and Android apps. Panorama X blows away its predecessors. It's incredibly modern and sophisticated with a low minimum threshold for the user's skill but boundless capabilities for those who are ambitious to craft complete database systems.
