Traders and managers using Panopticon can visualize, understand, develop insight, and act immediately, without waiting for end-of-day reports. The company provides visual anomaly detection for real time streaming, intraday, and historic time series data sets to identify problems or opportunities that are easily missed with traditional trader displays and reports.
