Panopticon poaches QlikTech sales head
Nadeem Chowdhry, formerly sales director of financial services for QlikTech, the makers of the QlikView business intelligence system, has joined data visualisation specialist Panopticon as senior vice president in the UK.
Chowdhry has 20 years of experience in selling enterprise software to global organisations. Since 2005, he has helped develop the market for QlikView products in the UK banking and insurance sectors, working with clients including HSBC, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and RBS.
“I have seen for some time now how important real time use cases are to capital markets firms. The traditional old way of doing things using a BI model is simply inadequate given how fast market conditions can change,” said Chowdry. “New regulation is also pushing the banks to adjust their thinking. They now see how Panopticon’s real-time data visualisation technology is a ‘must have’ for risk monitoring, transaction cost analysis, high frequency trading, algo trading, and portfolio management applications.”
