DATAWATCH ANNOUNCES INITIAL INTEGRATION OF PANOPTICON
Combination Offers Direct Access to Unstructured Data Sources For Visualization
Chelmsford, Mass.—September 4, 2013—Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of information optimization solutions, today announced the initial product integration between Datawatch and the newly acquired Panopticon software. This product combination will offer the industry’s first software solution in which unstructured data can be directly accessed for self-service or enterprise-wide visual data discovery.
The interoperability between Datawatch and Panopticon allows users to export their modeled, unstructured and semi-structured data directly from Datawatch into a Panopticon workbook to perform visual data discovery. Similarly, Panopticon users can now select an unstructured source of data directly for visual analysis within Panopticon, or develop a new model that delivers access to one of these sources.
“Our initial integration of both products is a market changer,” said Jon Pilkington, vice president of Products for Datawatch. “Our new product line offers world-class visual data discovery capabilities with direct access to unstructured data sources. Combining the data variety that Datawatch offers with real-time data access from Panoption provides customers an unprecedented data visualization experience against virtually any source of information.”
This new integration continues to extend Datawatch’s ability to deliver data variety to business intelligence, big data and visual discovery solutions through its information optimization products. With the new product line, organizations will be able to analyze and understand any data variety, regardless of structure, at real-time velocity, through an unmatched visual data discovery environment.
