Datawatch Announces the General Availability of Monarch Business Intelligence Enterprise Server, Version 5

Originally published February 11, 2010

Datawatch Corporation, a leader in Business Intelligence (BI), recently announced the general availability of Monarch Business Intelligence Enterprise Server, Version 5. Previously named Datawatch ES, Monarch BI Enterprise Server provides a powerful and cost-effective alternative to complex, database-oriented BI solutions.

"For more than 10 years, Datawatch BI products have allowed us to keep costs down as our business grows," said Joe Lovati, IT Data Services supervisor for American Home Mortgage Servicing. "There are few technologies available that align so effectively and seamlessly with our existing report infrastructure. Monarch BI Enterprise Server does just that."

Monarch BI Enterprise Server allows organizations to create the functional equivalent of a data warehouse at a fraction of the cost. With this solution, companies can store and transform existing business documents and reports, such as those created from ERP, CRM, accounting or mainframe applications, into on-demand browser-based or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet tables, summaries and charts for immediate online analysis. As a result, Monarch BI Enterprise Server offers an easier, more economical way for providing users with the information they need in the format they want, simply by leveraging the time and knowledge already invested in an organization's internally or externally generated reports, log files and other business documents.

Designed to easily scale from departmental to enterprise usage, Monarch BI Enterprise Server fully leverages a company's existing systems. The solution requires a low initial investment and is easy to use, install and maintain. It doesn't require programming or live database connections, so users with literally a few minutes of training can access and analyze the data they need via a Web browser to make better business decisions.

"We leverage a large-scale stream of Greenbar reports including an abundance of PDF documents, such as copies of letters or year-end reports," continued Lovati. "We're particularly excited about Monarch BI Enterprise Server Version 5 because of its ability to archive and store these PDFs, which are typically cumbersome to access, and make them available online for additional analysis. Another big benefit for us is that Monarch BI Enterprise Server will support a virtual server environment, which will allow us to move beyond our current technology infrastructure."

"Organizations today need easy-to-use, cost-effective BI tools that give them the power to solve daily operational issues without building expensive data marts, using complex data access query tools, or burdening the IT department with requests for custom reports," said John Kitchen, senior vice president and CMO, Datawatch. "Monarch BI Enterprise Server is a pragmatic way to provide everyone from executives to front-line employees quick and easy access to key business information without spending a fortune on implementation, administration, support and training. It's like getting 80 percent of the functionality of a data warehouse at 20 percent of the cost and five percent of the effort."
