Datawatch Upgrades Reporting Tools

Datawatch ES, Version 4.6, boosts overall performance, improves Microsoft Excel integration and features compatibility with version 10 of Datawatch's Monarch business intelligence software.

Datawatch has introduced an upgrade of its reporting tools that boosts overall performance, improves Microsoft Excel integration and expands support to more operating systems and databases.

Datawatch ES, Version 4.6, also features compatibility with version 10 of Datawatch's Monarch business intelligence software.

Datawatch BI applications are different from other vendors' in that they don't depend on building a costly data warehouse, which is often out of reach for small and mid-sized organizations. Instead, the company's Web-based tool is able to squeeze insight directly out of data in existing reports and other electronic documents.

"Datawatch ES 4.6 allows organizations to take advantage of the substantial investment already made in their existing reporting systems to provide actionable data for timely business decisions," Harvey Gross, VP of product development at Datawatch, said in a statement released Wednesday.

The latest version of ES supports Excel 2007, including .Xlsx files containing up to one million rows of data, embedded instructions for pivot tables and Excel formulas, Datawatch said.

Other enhancements include better performance when processing large documents, increased granularity when extracting data from multi-subject document pages, new data filters and sorting capabilities, and improved administrative functionality, the company said.

Finally, the upgrade supports more operating systems and databases, including Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 32/64 bit, SQL Server 2005 64 bit, Oracle 11i, IBM Websphere 6.1 and Tomcat 6.0.

ES pricing was not disclosed.
