Panorama Software, a provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions expanded the company’s operations into North America. As part of the move to North America, Janice P. Anderson, a veteran of Lucent Technologies, joins the company as chief executive officer. Rony Ross, Panorama Software’s founder, remains actively involved with the company as executive chairman. The privately held Panorama Software is profitable and growing, and secured a second round of financing to support its expansion efforts. Terms of the financing were not disclosed.

Panorama’s expansion will better serve U.S. enterprises in need of powerful, scaleable business intelligence (BI) solutions. Business people at all levels and functions need to leverage the power of business intelligence to make effective decisions and produce the best results. Panorama redefines decision making across the enterprise by making actionable and relevant data readily available to everyone. The company’s Panorama NovaView e-BI solution extends controlled, secured access to employees, customers and partners, and maximizes the capabilities of Microsoft’s leading BI platform – SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services.

Panorama’s lineage can be tied back to the successful sale of its online analytical processing (OLAP) technology to Microsoft in 1996. Panorama is a current member of Microsoft’s Data Warehousing Alliance and provides well- integrated solutions for enterprises leveraging Microsoft’s BI Platform.

With 20 years of information technology, telecommunications and enterprise software experience, Anderson assumes the role of chief executive officer of Panorama Software and its subsidiaries globally. Previously, Anderson led the global customer relationship management (CRM) business unit of Lucent Technologies. During her tenure, Lucent reached the number one position in North America, Europe, Brazil and Asia and doubled its worldwide revenue in CRM solutions sales.

Ross is the executive chairman and founder of Panorama Software and was part of the original team that created the OLAP technology the company sold to Microsoft. Ross has a strong background in software development, marketing, corporate strategy and business development.
