Our new visual data discovery capabilities are an exciting new addition to our product portfolio and it is important we bring this new set of capabilities to our existing customers. I'm delighted to be able to announce this partnership with Monarch Experts, which will help thousands of organisations using our technology to adopt the new visual data discovery platform," said Ben Plummer, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of Strategic Alliances at Datawatch. "By upgrading to Datawatch Desktop our existing customers will not only be able to deliver high value visualizations against the unstructured sources they are currently using, but they will be able to extend this to include direct access to streaming real-time sources as well as a host of Big Data stores," he added.
Datawatch customer Christ Daamen, director of business improvement at Stahl Holdings, adds, "Like many longstanding Datawatch users, we knew that we needed to scale and automate our reporting, but we weren't sure how to deliver this. Monarch Experts' independent advice on Datawatch's technology has helped us plan our strategy."
Olly Bond, founder of Monarch Experts concludes, "As customers make the move from desktop to enterprise solutions, they face a new set of challenges and opportunities to get their most from their existing investment. With project management automation, training and consultancy skills we have already helped over 3,000 users in the Datawatch support forums. I am delighted that we will now be able to offer certified Professional Services to all users."
