Managed Analytics Platform from Datawatch
Datawatch has launched the Managed Analytics Platform, which is designed as an enterprise solution for self-service data preparation and visual data discovery. The company reports it’s able to bridge the gap between self-service and enterprise requirements and is said to offer the only solution that combines the ease of use and agility that business users require with the scalability, automation and governance demanded by IT.
The company highlights the following features and capabilities:
- self-service data preparation—disparate data set manipulation, filtering, enrichment blending and combining;
- advanced data enrichment—redaction capabilities to remove or obscure sensitive information used in regulated industries, predictive analytic enrichment including real-time scoring and time series interpolation and conflation;
- automation without scripting—intuitive visual process designer to schedule data extraction and preparation processes and deliver prepared data to authorized users or other enterprise systems;
- access multi-structured data—capabilities to extract and prepare data from PDF files, log files, telemetry data, print spools, text, CSV, EDI, HTML and BI reports created by third-party tools and legacy systems;
- synchronous visual authoring—ability to simultaneously prep and visualize data side-by-side to get the desired results quickly; and
- frictionless governance—securely store, manage and control access to all of the assets in the analytics workflow including data preparation models, data discovery workbooks, and source content not typically managed, including documents and XLS/CSV extracts.
The new data preparation capabilities are available both as a standalone offering (for using any third-party analytic frontend or to load into a data warehouse/data mart) as well as tightly coupled with the visual authoring tool for quickly building visualization applications.
The Datawatch Managed Analytics Platform is available with subscription pricing starting at $895 per user per year.
