  STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, Jun 19 (Marketwire) -- 
Panopticon Software, the leading provider of visual data analysis
software for real-time data, today announced that it has optimized the
latest release of its data visualization software suite to support the
SAP(R) In-Memory Appliance SAP HANA(TM). Clients utilize HANA to manage
data in conjunction with SAP ERP systems and many firms also use HANA as
a replacement for traditional data stores. A large number of customers
have expressed interest in using Panopticon data visualization tools with
HANA to support real-time operational decision-making and "Big Data"

    Panopticon accesses and displays HANA data in real-time and provides a
completely unique capability for businesses that require instant access
to their information. In addition, both HANA and Panopticon allow users
to federate external data sources (including CEP engines, message queues,
tick databases, traditional relational databases, and OData sources) into
their analytic models in order to further amplify the utility of the
combined HANA/Panopticon platform. 

    The Panopticon platform makes full use of HANA's in-memory capabilities
and returns interactive results that are used for instant visual
analysis. The combined architecture minimizes latency by eliminating the
need for abstraction layers and data warehouses and allows users to
directly access data stored in HANA. 

    SAP Executive Board Member Vishal Sikka used Panopticon to demonstrate
HANA's "Big Data" capabilities in press conference held in San Francisco
on April 10, 2012. (Video replay of press conference here:

    Willem De Geer, Managing Director of Panopticon Software, stated, "Making
effective use of their data is critical to our clients, which include
JPMorgan Chase, BlackRock, Vodafone, LDH Energy, and Thomson Reuters.
Panopticon's real-time data visualizations combined with HANA's
analytical capabilities provide organizations of this scale truly
effective insight into truly enormous volumes of operational data." 

    Peter Simpson, SVP Research & Development for Panopticon Software,
stated, "The ability to use Panopticon as the user interface for SAP HANA
means that our customers can assemble a highly optimized platform for
visual analysis of real-time data very quickly."
