Chelmsford, Mass. — March 31, 2014— Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), a leading provider of visual data discovery solutions, announced today that at the upcoming 2014 Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in Las Vegas, Jon Pilkington, vice president of products for Datawatch Corporation will lay out a future vision of agile business intelligence that lets users visually explore and analyze both streaming and historic data sources in real time.
Datawatch believes active data exploration and discovery is rapidly becoming the preferred way organizations are gleaning valuable insight from their growing volumes of data. In his session on March 31st, Pilkington will explain to attendees how this interactive, visual approach to data discovery and business intelligence can now be extended to, and melded with, truly real time sources of streaming data as well as historic data sources and why this capability is becoming vital to decision making.
According to Gartner’s analysis1, “By 2017, over 50 percent of analytics implementations will make use of event data streams generated from instrumented machines, applications and/or individuals.” We believe Datawatch is at the forefront of this market shift to high velocity streaming data and we believe that Gartner’s advice to BI vendors is foretelling. “BI vendor management must work to create next-generation capabilities beyond user-directed query and reporting, enabling more autonomous expression of insights from high-velocity data streams.”
“To date, business intelligence and analytics have been fairly static and wholly focused on the past,” said Pilkington. ”It’s becoming increasingly important that organizations understand how they can gain valuable insights by bringing the present into view by tapping streaming data sources.”
Uniquely able to visualize streaming data in flight for interactive analysis, Datawatch is embedded and resold as part of streaming solutions from Tibco and SAP. Datawatch’s advanced visual data discovery capabilities also support streaming solutions from vendors such as IBM, Amazon, Informatica, PivotalApache, Kx Systems and EsperTech.
By supporting leading streaming solutions, Datawatch gives users the ability to put a finger on important data pulse points in the organization and quickly start asking questions that can uncover hidden patterns, spot problems and identify missed opportunities, all without programming or scripting.
In addition, Datawatch lets users easily combine real-time data with historical data, both structured and unstructured, to get a full understanding and make better, faster decisions.
