CHELMSFORD, Mass.June 18 — Datawatch Corporation, a leading global provider of visual data discovery solutions, announced today that it has teamed with Cloudera to bring real-time visual data discovery capabilities to users of Cloudera Enterprise 5, the company’s next generation Hadoop-powered enterprise platform that serves as an integral component of enterprise data hubs globally.

The technology integration is part of Datawatch’s new certification in the Cloudera Connect partner program, which makes it easier for Apache Hadoop technology buyers to purchase the right software applications to extract the most value from their data.

The partnership will create an integrated data discovery environment so Cloudera users can visualize any kind of data at real-time speeds. This visually enhanced enterprise data hub can be deployed where and how organizations need in order to maximize efficiency. Datawatch worked with Cloudera to integrate, test and certify its technology, so that it works seamlessly with Cloudera Enterprise 5, the most complete and popular platform powered by Apache Hadoop.

“For businesses to benefit from the data that they are collecting, they need timely, meaningful insight into that information,” saidBen Plummer, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of Strategic Alliances, Datawatch. “The combination of Datawatch and Cloudera delivers the type of enterprise-wide access and insight agility that users need to get real business value out of their data,” he added.

Datawatch lets users overlay historical data onto feeds that are being visualized in real time – before the data is stored – to see and contextualize how their business is behaving in the moment.
