Panopticon Software, the leading provider of visual data discovery and analysis software for real-time, CEP and historical time series data, today announced it has been included in the UBM Tech Channel's CRN 2013 Big Data 100 list. The Big Data 100 recognizes innovative technology vendors that help businesses manage "Big Data" — the rapidly increasing volume, variety and velocity of information being generated today. The list covers three categories: business analytics, data management, infrastructure and services. The Big Data 100 includes many established vendors as well as startups and specialized suppliers of niche products that help businesses address Big Data needs.
The 2013 Big Data 100 list is featured in the April issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.CRN.com. Selections were made by the CRN editorial staff.
Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, CRN, said, "The 2013 Big Data 100 list recognizes vendors that have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today’s Big Data services, and have evolved to meet the needs of today’s business leaders. Companies need technologies that not only help them process and manage all that data, but also offer market insights. The Big Data 100 vendors set themselves apart with the cutting edge products and services that provide significant growth opportunities for solution providers to build their business and effectively compete in today’s information economy."
Panopticon supports the ability to visualize data from true real-time streaming sources, including message queues, CEP engines, real time databases and tick history stores as well as federate data from multiple sources, including standard relational databases, OData producers, other web services, and flat files. The system does not require an expensive middle data layer which adds unnecessary latency and connects directly to an organization's data sources.
Willem De Geer, Panopticon's Managing Director, stated, "Our banking customers have been challenged by what is now being called Big Data for many years, and our focus has always been on helping people monitor and analyze fast-changing, very large data sets. Our ability to connect to real time streaming sources like CEP engines, message buses, tick databases, and in-memory systems like SAP HANA is critical to our clients. As a result, decision-makers using Panopticon can be sure they are looking at the most current data available. Our filtering, federation and interactive analytics tools allow them to go from spotting an opportunity or a threat to making a fully informed decision very quickly. This gives our clients a sharp competitive edge. We're honored that CRN has included our visual data discovery platform in their inaugural Big Data 100 list."
