Datawatch Announces Platinum Sponsorship of Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit

A Leader in Visual Data Discovery to Detail Streaming Future of Analytics

CHELMSFORD, Mass., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), a leading provider of visual data discovery solutions, announced today that at the upcoming 2014 Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in Las Vegas, John Pilkington, vice president of products for Datawatch Corporation will lay out a future vision of agile business intelligence that lets users visually explore and analyze both streaming and historic data sources in real time.

Datawatch believes active data exploration and discovery is rapidly becoming the preferred way organizations are gleaning valuable insight from their growing volumes of data. In his session on March 31st, Pilkington will explain to attendees how this interactive, visual approach to data discovery and business intelligence can now be extended to, and melded with, truly real time sources of streaming data as well as historic data sources and why this capability is becoming vital to decision making.

According to Gartner's analysis[1], "By 2017, over 50 percent of analytics implementations will make use of event data streams generated from instrumented machines, applications and/or individuals." We believe Datawatch is at the forefront of this market shift to high velocity streaming data and we believe that Gartner's advice to BI vendors is foretelling.   "BI vendor management must work to create next-generation capabilities beyond user-directed query and reporting, enabling more autonomous expression of insights from high-velocity data streams."

"To date, business intelligence and analytics have been fairly static and wholly focused on the past," said Pilkington. "It's becoming increasingly important that organizations understand how they can gain valuable insights by bringing the present into view by tapping streaming data sources."

Uniquely able to visualize streaming data in flight for interactive analysis, Datawatch is embedded and resold as part of streaming solutions from Tibco and SAP. Datawatch's advanced visual data discovery capabilities also support streaming solutions from vendors such as IBM, Amazon, Informatica, PivotalApache, Kx Systems and EsperTech.

By supporting leading streaming solutions, Datawatch gives users the ability to put a finger on important data pulse points in the organization and quickly start asking questions that can uncover hidden patterns, spot problems and identify missed opportunities, all without programming or scripting.

In addition, Datawatch lets users easily combine real-time data with historical data, both structured and unstructured, to get a full understanding and make better, faster decisions.

The 2014 Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit, Datawatch will be held March 31 through April 2 at the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Datawatch is a platinum level sponsor of this year's event and will be highlighting its integrated suite of visual data discovery offerings in the event's Solution Showcase, as well as in its booth #117 at the show.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
