Datawatch Named to CRN Big Data 100: Business Analytics List

Chelmsford, Mass.—May 22, 2014—Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH) a leading global provider of visual data discovery solutions, today announced it has been named to CRN.com’s Second Annual Big Data 100: Business Analytics list of vendors “that have demonstrated an ability to innovate in bringing to market products and services that help business work with big data.”

 

CRN.com is the latest publication to call out Datawatch’s ability to visualize data drawn from a wide variety of sources, historical and real-time, structured and semi-structured, at scale. In February, KM World Magazine cited Datawatch as one of its “100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management,” while Database Trends & Applications Magazine recognized the company’s visual data discovery offering as a “Trend-Setting Product in Data for 2014.”

 

Traditional business intelligence focuses on delivering largely static reports from predefined, highly structured data sets. Big Data’s volume, velocity and variety upends this approach; placing a premium on connecting all relevant data sources in a visually-rich analytical environment that combines data in motion and at rest. Datawatch is uniquely able to meet this requirement; giving users simple and powerful ways to connect with and visually explore information.

 

“The momentum we’ve seen in the first half of this year alone has been truly amazing,” said Ben Plummer, chief marketing officer and senior vice president, Strategic Alliances for Datawatch Corporation. “The media recognition is ongoing validation of our vision and technology and its ability to deliver real business value.”
