Monthly Newsletter – October 2016


We are  excited to announce the winner of our first-ever Independence from Data Prep “Best Use of New Found Time” award! A big shout out to Bob Grocoff, Officer, Leasing Operations consultant of Bank of America Merrill Lynch for sharing how he has been liberated from the shackles of data prep! (see his pic below) According to Bob:

“Altair Monarch has been a real time saver for me to efficiently extract data from my monthly PDF reports quickly to reconcile my General Ledger accounts on time. Your software has definitely allowed me to take a well-needed vacation with my wife and I really appreciate that very much!”

Congratulations to Bob and all of our entrants! We are genuinely pleased to hear how Monarch has been able to help you recoup some precious time.

Partnership News:

Convergence Consulting Group (CCG) is our newest partner! CCG’s clients can now tap the power of the Monarch platform to achieve maximum ROI from their existing BI and analytics investments. This vendor-agnostic data and analytics consulting firm is perfectly aligned with our Altair philosophy as Anthony Ciancio, VP of Analytics, CCG, said:“Many organizations are still falling short when it comes to advanced analytics because they don’t have an effective self-service data prep solution in place. Business users need answers a lot faster than IT can deliver, and they require rapid self-service data prep that speeds time-to-insight and meets executives’ expectations. With Altair Monarch, we’re able to satisfy the demands of business users by getting quality data into their hands very quickly, while enabling organizations to make the most out of their existing BI and analytics investments.”

We look forward to spending more time with CCG at IBM World of Watson later this month!
