Datawatch Corporation’s updated Datawatch Swarm offers corporations new deployment options to fuel their self-service analytics initiatives and capture the full return on their business intelligence investments. The new release aligns directly with enterprises' needs for flexible, scalable, and collaborative infrastructure and also provides multitenancy and SaaS deployment options for Datawatch partners.

“Datawatch Swarm is designed to empower business analysts while also meeting the data governance needs of the enterprise's IT department. It fills the void in the corporate data stacks by connecting the IT and data governance tenets to the self-service and predictive analytics needs of business analysts,” said Jon Pilkington, chief product officer, Datawatch.

Datawatch Swarm offers a full suite of enterprise features that supports the needs and goals of IT and business intelligence teams of the world's largest corporations. These latest features include:

  • Scalable Linux deployments: Offers enterprises cluster load balancing, fault tolerance, and configuration management, allowing IT to easily implement Swarm across all departments
  • Kubernetes containerization: Automates the distribution, scaling, and management of the Swarm platform for all business users and analysts to ensure proper data governance and sharing of data, models, and outcomes in the centralized data management platform
  • Wider integrations and enterprise deployment support: Adds integrations to key enterprise technologies, such as single sign-on, to provide a friction-free, user-friendly experience for employees to encourage data sharing and collaboration

Dresner Advisory Services’ report, “2018 Data Catalog Market Study,” examines current and future use of data catalogs, governance, and collaboration. It noted Datawatch’s collaboration features and powerful administrative and governance tools that align enterprises.

“As our study found, close to half of all analysts are struggling to locate and access data, which greatly impacts their success in deriving business intelligence insights. Additionally, more than 70 percent stated that governing content creation and sharing is critical and leads to greater consistency, accuracy, and data management,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services.

By combining a centralized data marketplace with data preparation, cataloging, and governance features, Datawatch Swarm offers a multitenant, cloud-ready enterprise platform that transforms how business analysts interact with and perceive data. The solution amplifies existing investments in business intelligence, data lakes, data warehouses, master data management platforms, and catalogs with advanced data preparation and socialization technology to solve analytics challenges. Swarm provides a centralized data management platform offering strong governance for IT teams and collaboration features for business analysts to create, access, validate, and share governed, trustworthy data sets, models, and outcomes across departments.
