- 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.
The recent Dresner Advisory Services report, "2018 Data Catalog Market Study," which examines current and future use of data catalogs, governance and collaboration, ranked Datawatch as one of the top solutions for market-leading collaboration features with powerful administrative and governance tools that aligns 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 then 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 is the first multi-tenant, 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 analytical 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 datasets, models and outcomes across departments.
