Earlier this year, IBM and Datawatch, a maker of self-service data preparation and visualization tools, teamed to help users quickly gain insight from structured and unstructured data using Datawatch Monarch and IBM’s Watson Analytics and Cognos Analytics.
As part of the partnership, IBM committed to resell Datawatch Monarch, which enables citizen analysts by making it easy to access, manipulate and blend data from a variety of sources.
Robin Grosset, IBM distinguished engineer and chief architect of IBM Watson Analytics, told eWEEK that with Datawatch Monarch, IBM Watson Analytics and Cognos Analytics users can quickly prepare data from almost any information source—from traditional databases to multi-structured documents such as PDF and text reports, Web pages, JSON and log files—and gain insight from it.
