Datawatch Teams Up with IBM to Supercharge Self-Service Data Preparation

Datawatch Corporation is partnering with IBM to deliver enhanced data access and self-service data preparation to IBM Watson Analytics and IBM Cognos Analytics users.

“We help ordinary people achieve extrodinary results with their data,” said Dan Potter, CMO. “It’s all about providing the very powerful sets of tools and approaches so that ordinary people can be empowered and move to tools like IBM.”

Additionally per this agreement, IBM will resell Datawatch Monarch, Datawatch’s self-service data preparation solution which enables business analysts to access, manipulate, and blend data from the widest variety of sources.

By utilizing Datawatch Monarch, IBM Watson Analytics and Cognos Analytics users can now rapidly prepare data from any information source, from traditional databases to multi-structured documents, such as PDF and text reports, Web pages, JSON and log files that had previously been locked away.

Users can now access a variety of features, including data preparation, disparate data integration, sharing and automation capabilities, and security and information governance.

“The faster you can bring data in and the more variety of data sources you can bring in, the better your decisions will be. That’s really the heart of this relationship.”

Planned upgrades for the future include a drag and drop, point and click experience for users where they can unlock, combine, or bring data directly into powerful tools like the IBM portfolio, Potter explained.

“We’re very excited obviously to be working with one of the leading vendors in analytics,” Potter said. “IBM has very much been leading the market around this notion of cognitive computing. That’s one of the things we’re so excited about.”
