Panopticon Software, the leading provider of Treemap data visualization software, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Opturo® Solutions On Demand™, a new company launched to service the rapidly changing needs of financial services customers. The agreement allows Opturo® to embed Panopticon's data visualization technology into its own applications utilizing the Panopticon Developer Software Developer's Kit (SDK) and also to resell Panopticon's SDK and Enterprise products to customers.

Opturo plans to incorporate Panopticon's groundbreaking, unique and industry-leading time-series data visualizations into its historical Performance Analysis and Attribution System (OPASS).

Kenneth D'Silva, President of Opturo® Solutions On Demand™, stated, "We have used Panopticon's visualization technology in other projects over the years and we fully understand the value it brings to sophisticated systems. Users need software that they can learn to use effectively in very little time, especially in today's market. The Panopticon software is a valuable addition to our product portfolio and we're very happy to be working with them again."
