Imagine Software Incorporates Panopticon Dashboards into its Real-Time Portfolio, Risk and Compliance Management Solutions

 Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM:DWCHand Imagine Software have announced a partnership that enables Imagine to resell the Panopticon visual analytics platform alongside the firm’s front-to-back-office portfolio risk and compliance management solutions.

Imagine offers the power of real-time, institutional-grade portfolio and risk management solutions, either fully serviced in the cloud with real-time pricing, security master, corporate actions, and derived market data, or a traditional in-house software deployment. The company’s clients include many of the world’s leading investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers and other financial services firms engaged in trading strategies and across all asset classes trading.

Datawatch Panopticon’s visual analysis software leverages the power of Imagine solutions to enable easier monitoring and analysis of risk and profitability in real-time. In addition, Panopticon’s business intelligence dashboards help organize the plethora of data portfolios that risk managers have to navigate through, thus reducing the noise and optimally consolidating the most critical analytics in a readily accessible console.

“Imagine customers use Panopticon to connect to a range of real-time and historical data sources – including message buses, CEP engines, and Big Data repositories – and build custom analytical dashboards in mere minutes. This enables users to respond quickly to market events and make decisions that affect their organization’s profitability, compliance and exposure during the trading day, as opposed to waiting for end-of-day or end-of-period reports. That’s a tremendous business advantage over depending on the backward-looking, historical information that many financial firms still use to make critical decisions,” said Lance Smith, CEO and co-founder of Imagine Software.

Peter Simpson, vice president of visualization strategy at Datawatch, stated: “Imagine has some of the most advanced risk and trading solutions in the world. The combination of their excellent risk analytics and data management functions with the Panopticon visualization technology provides the industry with one of the most powerful platforms available. Imagine is ideal for helping fund managers and other investment professionals make the most of the opportunities available in volatile market conditions.”
