Datawatch Discusses the Future of Visualization and Streaming Analytics at Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit 2014

Chelmsford, Mass. and Munich, Germany—Oct. 16, 2014Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), a leading global provider of visual data discovery solutions, will give a presentation on how streaming data will transform analytics and business intelligence at the Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit 2014 in Munich, Germany.


Datawatch’s Ben Plummer, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of strategic alliances, will present: Visual Data Discovery & Streaming Data: It’s About Time. The session, held on Tuesday, October 21st at 3:15 PM in the Sydney room at The Westin Grand Munich, will examine how visual data discovery has become the dominant approach to business intelligence and how, driven by market trends like big data and the Internet of Things (IoT), visual data discovery will transform again over the next three years where more than 50% of implementations will include the use of multi-structured and streaming sources.


“Many business intelligence vendors say they let users see data in real time. But what they mean is at any given moment, their software can give you a fresh snapshot from an external data source – which is, of course, no longer real-time an instant later. True real-time visualization will require actually consuming streaming data from sources like machines and message brokers so you can see what’s happening on a tick-by-tick basis. That means you will always be able to know exactly how your business is performing in real-time,” Plummer said.


Datawatch is also a Platinum Sponsor of the Gartner Summit.
