New Panopticon EX Information Visualization Software Supports Visual Monitoring and Fast Analysis of Business Information

Panopticon Software, the leading provider of information visualization software for business and industry, today announced the release of Panopticon EX, a product platform for web-enabled visual monitoring and fast analysis of complex data. The software incorporates a wide range of data visualizations, from Treemaps and Heatmaps to Scatter Plots, and uses Panopticon's StreamCube™ OLAP data model for on-the-fly data aggregations and slicing and dicing.

Panopticon EX incorporates over three years of development and was created using the company's fifth generation Panopticon Developer SDK.

Panopticon EX is suitable for deployment throughout the enterprise, at the workgroup level or even on public websites. The platform includes a desktop authoring tool that allows power users to assemble and publish new monitoring and analysis dashboards to the web. Panopticon EX server software is capable of serving very large numbers of users and provides a rich, full featured user experience to web clients. Customers often implement Panopticon software to enhance the usability and effectiveness of traditional Business Intelligence (BI) and reporting systems.

The software includes connectors for relational databases, including DB2, Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL as well as Microsoft Excel and similar "flat file" formats. The system's plug-in architecture makes it possible to add additional data connectors at any time.

Unlike most visualization systems, Panopticon EX can handle extremely fast data updates with incredible efficiency. This makes it particularly useful in organizations that must make informed business decisions based on large amounts of fast-changing data.

Panopticon EX utilizes the firm's unique StreamCube™ OLAP data model. This provides rich OLAP functionality supporting extremely fast analysis of static data and for data that is continuously updated. It binds aspects of the data to the visualizations, filters and user controls presented on the screen and as a result allows users to move up and down within the data hierarchy easily. They can filter, slice and dice the data quickly using this fast in-memory data model.

Willem De Geer, CEO of Panopticon, stated, "Our new EX product is changing the Panopticon universe. It's the result of three years of hard work, investment and clear client demand. There is nothing else in the market that can do what we are doing. Panopticon EX delivers incredibly rich functionality, analytical capabilities and fantastic ease-of-use to organizations that require rapid deployment."
