Panopticon introduces Explorer – the next generation of visualisation software

February 28th, 2006, London and New York: Panopticon Software, the leading supplier of real-time visualisation tools to the financial markets, today launched Panopticon Explorer, a sophisticated tool that brings groundbreaking business intelligence software to the desktop.

Incorporating a number of powerful new features, Panopticon Explorer takes their proven treemapping technology to the next level, giving financial professionals even greater control over the analysis of a wide range of complex data sets.

“Over the last few years, visualisation technology has come of age, moving out of the early adopter phase and becoming an indispensable tool for analysts and asset managers,” said Panopticon CEO and co-founder Willem De Geer. “The release of Panopticon Explorer represents another major leap forward that will revolutionise data analysis across the financial community and beyond. Panopticon could do for business intelligence what search engines did for the Internet.”

Quick and easy to install, Panopticon Explorer is a stand-alone application that can connect to any of a multitude of data sources – including Excel, SQL Server, Sybase and Oracle – to deliver instantaneous results. Data can simply be dragged and dropped into Panopticon Explorer to instantly generate treemaps, eliminating the need for laborious configuration. In addition, Panopticon Explorer 1.0 (premium version) allows historical data to be combined with streaming real-time capabilities of Panopticon's core technology, allowing connections to live data feeds, such as Reuters and Bloomberg, and can also be combined with historical data.

“The power of Panopticon’s visualisation technology has been proven in key applications within our top-tier financial institution client-base. With Panopticon Explorer, we’re taking it to a whole new level,” commented Sam Giertz, Panopticon co-founder and vice president of sales. “By putting even more powerful tools in the hands of users and enabling those tools to be applied to whatever data sets users wish, we are dramatically expanding the scope of the technology to deliver enterprise-wide benefits.”

Panopticon Explorer combines ease of use and apparent simplicity with extensive and flexible functionality, allowing data to be sliced and diced in numerous different ways and giving the user swift, clear access to the most important information.

Share the vision:

Panopticon Explorer enables efficient collaborative working, significantly expediting the decision-making process. Users can effortlessly share findings and analysis with colleagues by distributing live, annotated maps, easily and quickly and sharing important conclusions. Any map can be saved to file using the current data and instantly sent to colleagues and clients. Importantly, this new audience will not require detailed knowledge or training on the complex analytic functions available in the program

Available for white-labelling, Panopticon Explorer, for the first time, enables financial institutions to provide the visualisation tools they rely on in-house as a value-added service to clients.

Panopticon is the proven leader in visualisation and treemapping technology, with a client list that includes JPMorgan, Citigroup, Reuters and some of the world’s largest asset managers.
