As many Datawatch users already know, self-service data prep is an invaluable tool when you need to get at critical information as quickly as possible. By enabling easier access to time-sensitive and previously inaccessible data in unstructured formats like PDFs, web pages, log files and more, less time can be spent on data gathering, allowing more time to be focused on the analysis needed to support business-critical decisions.

Whatever your data prep challenge – improving reconciliation or auditing processes, enhancing your use of Microsoft Excel, maintaining your compliance initiatives or increasing your efficiency with visualization tools like Tableau, IBM Watson, IBM Cognos Analytics or Qlik – your self-service data prep efforts have just gotten even easier with the release of Monarch 13.2 from Datawatch.
