Oculus Info Inc. continues to push the state of the art in data visualization with new techniques for visualizing MicrosoftÂ® Excel 2003 spreadsheets. Rapid and powerful 3D visualization of spreadsheet data reveals trends, patterns and anomalies to provide financial analysts and their organizations with a competitive edge. Oculus is pleased to be displaying this new technology at the Infrastructure for Advanced Trading forum on Friday May 20, 2005 in New York City.
At the forum, Oculus will demonstrate an example visualization of a spreadsheet from Risk Capital, LLC that models potential peak credit exposures for pre-trade analysis. "Oculus visualization makes patterns visible that are otherwise impossible to see in spreadsheets, for example, dips and twists over time, or isolated anomalies," said Brett Humphreys, Managing Director of Risk Capital. In addition, Oculus will show other sample visualizations based on Oculus.NETâ¢ software for applications in real time market monitoring, performance analysis, historic analysis and risk modeling.
"Excel is ubiquitous throughout the financial markets as a sophisticated platform for collecting, analyzing and summarizing data from multiple sources," says Richard Brath, Senior Director of Business Development at Oculus. "Oculus leverages Excel with easy-to-use visualization. Rapid insight into spreadsheet data, means faster responses and more deals done." The Oculus.NET platform consists of information visualization libraries and frameworks including the new Excel framework for the rapid creation of new visualization prototypes and full projects.
