Datawatch Corporation has partnered with Tableau Software to help business analysts make faster and better decisions. Datawatch Monarch natively supports Tableau’s data format (TDE), enabling users to independently access, manipulate and blend any kind of data from virtually any source, in less time than it takes to do so using spreadsheets and other labor intensive methods.
The Datawatch-Tableau relationship also enables Tableau partners to deploy customer projects faster with reusable and automated preparation processes. Partners can also offer increased service engagement opportunities with Datawatch by delivering a comprehensive enterprise solution including governance for self-service analytics that spans data retention, auditing and masking.
Datawatch Monarch includes more than 80 pre-built functions designed specifically for data preparation, enabling transformation of incomplete, inaccurate data into an analysis-ready form with a few clicks.
According to Dan Potter, chief marketing officer at Datawatch, it is estimated that only 12% of enterprise data is used today to make decisions.
While Tableau helps people to see and understand their data, preparing and blending disparate data is often cited as actually taking longer than the data analysis process. “This partnership will enable faster decision making from the widest variety of data sources in minutes or hours, not days or weeks,” , said Dan Kogan, director of product Marketing at Tableau.
