Altair Panopticon 16 Offers Advanced Real-Time Streaming Data Analytics and Visualization Capabilities for Capital Markets
New server platform enables e-trading desks to quickly design and publish analytic dashboards for fast time-to-insight and action
BEDFORD, Massachusetts – January 25, 2017 – Altair Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH) today announced the general availability of Altair Panopticon 16, the most advanced visual analytics platform for the capital markets industry. The latest version of this proven solution provides faster trading analytics for expedited time-to-insight and addresses the need for real-time and historic views for trading effectiveness. Exchanges, buy-side and sell-side firms can now quickly integrate real-time streaming, intra-day and historic datasets into HTML5 analytical dashboards for faster and more informed decision-making.
Trading, risk and compliance desks require greater transparency in their trading flow to both satisfy regulation, and increase trading effectiveness by minimizing the latency in informed decision making. With the new edition of Altair Panopticon, e-trading desks can now analyze real-time streaming prices and orders, combined with intra-day and historic data sets, to identify anomalies, trends, clusters and relationships that were previously missed with traditional displays, investigate them and then take informed action. Specifically designed to handle high data volumes, Panopticon allows organizations to continuously tune trading effectiveness with the fastest analytics and visualization capabilities.
“Many of the world’s largest firms rely on Panopticon to turn best execution regulatory compliance into a business advantage. After looking at the market landscape and collecting customer insight, it was clear that, due to regulatory and market pressures, institutions need the ability to expand trading analytics from end-of-day reporting and quant team usage, to all the sales and trading desks, leveraging their institutional knowledge of client flow,” said Peter Simpson, vice president of visualization strategy at Datawatch. “Our significantly advanced analytics capabilities in Panopticon 16 offers up faster investigative analysis, whether pre-trade, real-time flow monitoring during trading, or post trade analysis. Panopticon customers not only benefit from improved decision making, but can also quickly react to changing market conditions iterating analytical displays and publishing to the desk.
