Customers Benefit from Easier Data Visualization, Faster Implementation and Powerful Real-Time and Interactive Capabilities
Chelmsford, Mass.–September 22, 2009–Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), a leader in Business Intelligence (BI) and Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announces the immediate availability of Datawatch Dashboards™, a next-generation BI tool that gives all levels of users visual insight into operational performance as well as the ability to graphically monitor specific business processes and events. Flexibly designed, Datawatch Dashboards can be used as a standalone solution or seamlessly integrate with other software applications.
Datawatch Dashboards’ intuitive presentation style allows users to easily access information from multiple sources of data. A single screen consolidates and arranges critical data (in real-time if so desired) and facilitates one-click drill-down to detailed information. Individual users can further personalize features such as layout view, chart style, formatting and filters; all subject to the appropriate security level. Security options include individual, chart, dashboard or global level settings.
“Dashboards are popular with executives to operational staff because of their ability to distill large amounts of data into at-a-glance indicators. But, there’s much more to dashboard set-up and design than putting a few colorful charts and graphs online,” said John Kitchen, Datawatch senior vice president and CMO. “The Datawatch Dashboards solution is unique because it provides stunning data visualization and easy implementation, plus empowers end users with the ability to customize information and format it to their requirements, even with limited or no technical knowledge.”
Combine Datawatch Dashboards with Monarch Report Mining for Fast and Easy Data Access and Integration
When joined with Datawatch Monarch report mining technology, Datawatch Dashboards also helps customers quickly overcome the very real pain of accessing, aggregating, transforming and delivering the data to a dashboard from multiple sources. Traditionally, merging information from transactional databases, legacy applications and third-party sources has been complex and failure-prone. The combination of Monarch technology and Datawatch Dashboards quickly and easily solves this problem without programming. This combination also allows users to easily customize their data via calculated fields, look-up tables and other options to provide ‘what if’ and exception reporting capabilities.
“Datawatch Dashboards is a unique solution in the industry because it makes it easy to access, display, and analyze information from hard-to-access data sources, including semi-structured data, such as log files, PDF documents, print files, and HTML catalog pages, as well as traditional CRM and ERP applications," said Wayne Eckerson, director of TDWI Research at The Data Warehousing Institute. "This is one of the first dashboards that bridges the worlds of business intelligence and semi-structured content.”
