Datawatch Brings Advanced Visual Data Discovery to Splunk Users

Chelmsford, Mass.—November 11, 2013—Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of visual data discovery solutions, announced a new Visualization Accelerator that allows Splunk users to develop highly customized real-time visualizations against their Splunk data without any coding or scripting, allowing them to realize the full potential of Operational Intelligence by monitoring and analyzing the machine data made accessible through Splunk as well as other enterprise data sources and data streams.


With Datawatch, users can connect to almost any source of information, including Splunk, to develop visual data discovery applications using an elegant drag-and-drop design environment. These next generation analytic extensions to Splunk applications can include high impact customized visualizations and intuitive filtering controls to help users quickly isolate outliers and anomalies in their data.


In addition to easy design, Datawatch users can unify the display of data from multiple Splunk searches, as well as include data from other sources such as semi-structured, unstructured and real-time data sources. And when combined with Datawatch Server, these next generation analytical applications can be shared across the entire enterprise via a browser-based solution, allowing for greater visibility and collaboration.
