DATAWATCH ANNOUNCES MAJOR NEW RELEASES OF PRODUCT PORTFOLIO

Releases Provide Speed, Security and Simplified Access to Big Data Variety for More Enterprise Users

Chelmsford, Mass.—July 31, 2013Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of information optimization solutions, today unveiled new server and management automation capabilities for its Datawatch Monarch Professional, Datawatch Data Pump and Datawatch Enterprise Server products. These major new releases of Datawatch’s flagship information optimization software will enable businesses to better secure, simplify and accelerate their Big Data and business intelligence applications, while more easily extending the technology to more users throughout the enterprise.

These latest releases offer enhanced enterprise-class security, load-balancing, failover and a simplified workflow between its client and server-based solutions. They will enable organizations to develop models against a greater variety of data sources using Datawatch Monarch Professional and then store and share those models inside Datawatch Enterprise Server, thus extending the value of the models to more users across the organization. A new project editor feature inside Datawatch Monarch Professional simplifies the workflow between client and server products by enabling users to edit and update scheduled projects directly to the server.

The new Datawatch Monarch Professional v11.7 improves upon the integration between the Monarch Professional client product and its newly upgraded v12 server based products, Enterprise Server and Data Pump. Monarch Professional users can now push, pull and edit automated projects via the Data Pump Project Editor through this new native feature to the desktop client.

Datawatch Data Pump v12.0 is now fully integrated into Enterprise Server, inheriting all enterprise-class security. This newly-adopted security allows for multi-user roles and defines access and permission at the process level as well as the use of Active Directory and Enterprise Server security models. Data Pump v12.0 also features browser-based administration, as well as multi-server load-balancing and failover.

Updates in Datawatch Enterprise Server v12.0 include support for Win 2012, IIS v8.0, IE v10, as well as a move to .NET Framework v4.5

“These new releases provide our customers with the ability to use the Datawatch products as an enterprise class solution,” said Jon Pilkington, vice president of products for Datawatch. “We have fully integrated our server-based products and simplified the workflow between our client and server-based solutions. We now provide a truly unified platform that gives users the ability to create new data source models, automate projects and securely manage them in a high availability server, where these big data solutions can be made available to every user.”

Lastly, this new release fulfills the requirements of Section 508 Amendment to the 1973 Rehabilitation Act Software Applications and Operating Systems. These guidelines are designed to

help establish the accessibility level of software for people with a disability and are an important factor in U.S. government procurement. Datawatch has created a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) which is available on request.
