STOCKHOLM and LONDON, November 16, 2010 - Panopticon Software, the leading provider of visual data analysis

visualization as part of the solutions it provides to customers globally,
enabling them to take advantage of both preconfigured views of data, and to
develop firm specific views as required.

Michael Meriton, CEO of GoldenSource, stated, "New regulatory directives
such as Basel III and Solvency II and investor demands for enhanced
transparency are increasing the pressure on current risk and data management
practices. Firms need to be able to not just link up all external and
internal systems to gain an accurate view of their data and exposure, but to
make all that information work for them. Panopticon offers an innovative
approach to analyzing data by adding an additional layer of data
visualization, ensuring our customers are able to understand the business
impacts their data at a glance."

The partnership means that data will now be configured in a series of
user-friendly dashboards which make it easy to view and analyze data in any
desired combination. Panopticon's approach of using data visualization tools
coupled with a fast in-memory OLAP data model sits well with GoldenSource's
approach, making this a powerful partnership."
