Altair Panopticon Visualization Server (or Panopticon Visualization Server) software is capable of serving very large numbers of users and provides a rich, full featured user experience to web clients.

Panopticon Designer (Desktop) incorporates our unique StreamCube™ OLAP data model. This provides rich OLAP functionality for fast analysis for static data and Time Series data.  It binds aspects of the data to the visualizations, filters and user controls presented on the screen and as a result allows users to move up and down within the data hierarchy easily, and filter, slice and dice the data quickly using the fast in-memory data model.

The software includes connectors for relational databases, including DB2. Oracle, SAP, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL as well as Microsoft Excel and similar "flat file" formats. The system's plug-in architecture makes it possible to add additional data connectors at any time.
