Long Beach, CA, and Chelmsford, MA – February 8, 2012 – Laserfiche today announced that Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM:DWCH) has joined the Laserfiche Professional Developer Partner (PDP) program, which provides customers with access to a variety of third-party integrations, configurations, plug-ins and Web tools. Datawatch’s Monarch Report Mining Server (RMS) adds dynamic information and report analytics functionality to Laserfiche 8.3.
“Organizations have embraced business intelligence as a way to access, analyze and act on core business data, but traditional business intelligence works only with structured data in relational databases,” said Terry Kerans, general manager, worldwide Monarch sales, Datawatch. “Our integration allows organizations to analyze all the rich data contained in Laserfiche—structured, semi-structured and loosely structured data alike.”
The integration will transform archived reports into live, interactive, Web-enabled data without the costly requirement for manual data entry. Datawatch and Laserfiche joint customers will leverage this integration to analyze reports, statements, invoices, log files, PDF/XPS files, ANSI/ASCII based text files, EDI reports, XML/HTML files, mainframe data and more.
Users will have multiple options for viewing the data, including HTML, Excel and PDF, among others. Web-based analytics views of report data will be generated by Monarch RMS based on user requests through a Laserfiche interface.
“According to IDC, data and analytics are a ‘must have’ competency for 2012,” said Alex Wilson, Director of the Laserfiche PDP program. “We’re delighted to partner with Datawatch to provide our customers with a robust framework for gaining analytical insight into their content.”
