Integra SP and Panopticon unite to enable visualisation technology within AltioLive

LONDON -October 24, 2005: Panopticon Software, the leading supplier of real-time visualisation solutions to the world’s financial markets, and Integra SP with its Altio, real-time integration software, today announced a strategic alliance to enable the use of Panopticon’s proven visualisation technology within Integra’s AltioLive presentation environment. This will provide added capability to Integra SP’s award winning Rich Internet Application product.

Panopticon’s treemap visualisation solutions are dynamic, interactive tools used for analysis and data exploration. A treemap from Panopticon is packed with functionality and controls that enable the user to do on-the-fly comparisons, slicing-and-dicing of data, look at aggregates along any dimension, change the characteristic assigned to size or colour and much more. Panopticon products handle true real time data updates.

Unlike spreadsheets and pivot tables, Panopticon treemaps instantly appeal to human curiosity and perceptive ability. The size and colour of objects is easy and intuitive to understand. They trigger users to investigate anomalies and outliers in the data sets by appealing not only to the logical, left part of your brain but also to the right, artistic part.

Integra SP's AltioLive technology enables companies to build and deploy rich interactive applications that look, feel and perform like traditional desktop applications, yet run with the convenience of a web page in a browser. Based on standard Java and XML, AltioLive can be deployed on a vast range of platforms and application servers and easily integrates into existing web and portal architectures. AltioLive Studio, the development environment, enables applications to be quickly designed in a zero-code/drag-drop interface, resulting in reduced time to market while enhancing the end-user experience.

Ben Nathan, Director of Strategic Alliances at Integra SP, says: "This is a great fit of complementary technologies that will be of major benefit to new and existing customers. Combining AltioLive’s data delivery and application framework with Panopticon’s cutting edge visualisation technology will even further revolutionise the end-user’s ability to analyse and respond to business issues as they happen. With respect to web applications – you can’t be too rich or too thin. AltioLive just got richer!"

Martin Porter, Business Development Director UK at Panopticon, adds: "We are moving treemaps to the next level by combining Panopticon’s visualisation solution with AltioLive’s data delivery. We see clear value in being able to offer this to the financial community."

Both AltioLive and Panopticon’s solutions are generic and can be applied to any information. While the respective technologies have independently shown a high ROI in the financial sector, both products have been deployed across a vast range of industry sectors and application areas.
