Datawatch has announced the release of Monarch Data Pump Pro, an enterprise data integration tool that is a companion product to the company's Monarch BI Server. According to IT Jungle, with the new version, Datawatch has added several new capabilities designed to help customers in high-volume production settings, including Web services integration, better tracing and logging, and a new Web browser management console.
"Datawatch is a different sort of business intelligence software company. Instead of building an information infrastructure from scratch, the company's tools are designed to mine existing reports to ascertain relevant information. The company's patented technology can then re-create the data relationships, enabling customers to access important information without the burden or expense of programming and building a data mart.
"Monarch Data Pump is a companion product to Monarch BI Server, and provides extract, transform, and load (ETL) capabilities for parsing through structured data sources like relational databases and Excel spreadsheets and unstructured ones PDF reports. The product also distributes the data as Excel spreadsheets or reports. Many of Datawatch's customers use the software to pull meaning out of old AS/400 reports."
