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.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"For over 25 years we have been working with a lot of enterprise customers and we have seen how companies create applications. And now that we have moved to cloud computing, mobile, social and the Internet of Things, we see that the market needs a new way of creating applications," stated Jesse Shiah, CEO, President and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 15th Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
