By CIOReview | Wednesday, May 18, 2016

BEDFORD, MA: On many instances, an organization’s source data is different and rarely exhibits itself in an analysis-ready format and takes hours of time for data preparation (prep) and to retrieve those data manually. In order to overcome this difficulty, Datawatch Corporation recently proclaimed its immediate availability of Datawatch Monarch for IBM Watson Analytics and IBM Cognos Analytics.

Datawatch Corporation is a Self-Service Data Preparation solution provider for the Enterprise. Datawatch Monarch’s self-service data prep solution enables everyday business users and data analysts to rapidly access, blend, and manipulate data from almost any source. The data can be developed for analysis in Cognos Analytics and Watson Analytics in a quicker time using spreadsheets and other manually-intensive assesses.

Earlier this year, Datawatch disclosed that IBM would resell Datawatch Monarch to ameliorate data access and prep to its users. Now, those users can utilize Monarch to analyze more, prep less, and harness the power of IBM’s cognitive computing potentialities across the mixture of data sources.

Dan Potter, CMO, Datawatch has also presented a lecture at the IBM Vision conference in Orlando, Florida on how self-service data prep enables users to leverage a wide variety of data for more accurate results, especially those in operational and financial performance management.

Michael Morrison, President & CEO, Datawatch says that most of strategic business decisions are made on outdated or incomplete information, due to the challenges in the data retrieval and time-intensive manual preparation procedures. This is will put down the company’s bottom line and growth potential. However, Monarch enables Cognos Analytics and Watson Analytics users to get the right information and gather all the information for a holistic view of the business for convenient and rapid preparation for analysis. He also points that users can now devote their time to perform analysis that accelerates decision making and drives business value rather than spending hours on mundane prep work.
