Datawatch Expands Visual Data Discovery to NoSQL Cloud DBaaS [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Datawatch Corp., a provider of visual data discovery solutions, announced it will integrate its software with Cloudant's NoSQL database-as-a-service (DBaaS) to help Web and mobile software developers quickly build data visualizations into their applications.
According to a release, this announcement follows news of Cloudant's acquisition by IBM, whose portfolio of Big Data and Analytics offerings allows clients to transform business decisions with actionable analytics.
"As enterprises deploy more Web apps that generate increasingly diverse data sets, the ability to manage and explore different types of data stored on cloud infrastructure is becoming an important supporting capability in the market for analytics software," said Michael Morrison, president and chief executive officer of Datawatch. "The work we've done to integrate with Cloudant's NoSQL database service will help customers turn their Web application data from an important business tool and into a vital business asset."
Datawatch added it developed its custom JSON parser in conjunction with Cloudant engineers to ensure the ability to stream data from Cloudant server clusters for high-performance data visualizations at large scale. The integration allows Datawatch customers to perform live queries on Cloudant data and drill down into operational application data to make faster decisions.
"The API economy and online data marketplaces are arming Web developers with easy and affordable options to draw on more data sets and make applications smarter than ever before, but, as human beings, they still need ways to visually explore the data to derive rapid insight," said Derek Schoettle, chief executive officer of Cloudant. "Integrating with Datawatch has been a valuable experience for us as we look to partner with more analytics solutions as part of IBM where, together, we can help clients tackle big-data-related challenges in virtually every industry."
The Datawatch integration with Cloudant is currently in beta, and will become generally available in a Q2 2014 release.
Cloudant, an IBM Company, provides globally distributed database- as-a-service.
