How it Works

Datawatch Monarch Swarm is a web-based self-service data preparation platform, providing access to everyone, everywhere. It enables all employees to easily find and use any data that has been made accessible to them within a data ecosystem. Monarch Swarm creates a social network of certified curated and raw data sets, with controls and limitations defined for each individual. Its comprehensive governance features, including data masking, data retention, data lineage and role-based permissions, enhance trust in data, analytics processes and results.


Data socialization is the next step in the evolution in data accessibility and self-service analytics allowing individuals, teams and organizations to reshape the way companies think about, and employees interact with, their business data. Data socialization eliminates the common barriers to data access and sharing. It creates a “data utopia” for BI analysts, data scientists and business users that boosts their productivity and speeds decision making.

Datawatch Monarch Swarm is the industry’s first data socialization platform, combining self-service data preparation, data cataloging, data stewardship, automation and governance features with key attributes common to social media platforms.
