Presenting to BBBT is truly a unique experience. We love the opportunity to get live feedback and expert opinions. – Dan Potter, CMO, Datawatch

On Tuesday, November 17, 2015, BBBT members will be briefed by Datawatch’s chief marketing officer, Dan Potter, and chief product officer, Jon Pilkington, on Datawatch’s unique ability to unlock data in multi-structured and streaming data sources.

Self-service data preparation has quickly emerged as a requirement to support the widespread adoption of self-service analytics tools. But it is estimated that only 12% of enterprise data is used today to make decisions. For over 20 years, Datawatch has provided a self-service data preparation solution for analysts to unlock data that is not easily accessible, transform it, blend it, and deliver it to a wide variety of analytic tools.

“Many business people need data that’s not part of the formal BI environment, like PDFs, text reports, JSON, log files, etc. Fortunately, Datawatch not only has the connectors for these data sources, but also the ability to prepare the data for ultimate visual discovery,” said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. “Now business users can serve themselves rather than waiting for IT -- or worse, simply ignoring these vital sources of data.”

“We’ve been serving this market for over 20 years and have a unique perspective on how it is evolving and the requirements needed to support enterprise-wide deployments with thousands of users,” said Mr. Potter. “We are thrilled to present our vision on the future of self-service data preparation to the BBBT analyst community. Presenting to BBBT is truly a unique experience. We love the opportunity to get live feedback and expert opinions.”

A podcast summarizing the presentation will be available at the BBBT podcasts page and a video of the presentation will be available at the BBBT videos page.
