CHELMSFORD, Mass., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of information optimization solutions, today announced the release of Datawatch Monarch Professional v11.5. This new release continues to extend Datawatch's lead in the ability to deliver data variety to business intelligence and big data solutions through its information optimization products by allowing users to more effectively manage and collaborate in the development of data models to decompose semi-structured and unstructured data sources, as well as delivers support for modeling sources in Japanese. Datawatch's new model management capabilities will allow organizations to develop models using Datawatch Monarch Professional and then store and share those models inside the Datawatch Enterprise Server through a secure collaboration function, extending the value of these models to more users across the organization. Additionally, Japanese language support in Datawatch Monarch Professional 11.5 enables the trapping, transformation, processing, and analysis of semi-structured and unstructured content from Japanese character sets. This support maintains the alignment of full-width and half-width characters within an input source, allowing Japanese users of Datawatch Monarch Professional to easily transform, analyze and export reports, PDF files, machine data, print streams, EDI streams and other semi-structured sources of data delivered to users in Japanese. This technological breakthrough is foundational to the future support for other full-width character sets, like Chinese and Korean.
"As we look to extend our business, both in terms of geography and enterprise readiness, it is critical that our products deliver the functionality required to support these initiatives," said Jon Pilkington, Vice President of Products, Datawatch. "With this release of Datawatch Monarch Professional, we have delivered support for our expansion into the Asia Pacific region and new capabilities that make our solutions even more relevant to the entire enterprise."

Monarch Power Client gives Datawatch Monarch Professional users the ability to use reports and edit/create new models directly from Datawatch Enterprise Server 11.5.
"This is a very important step in the maturation of our Information Optimization Platform," continued Mr. Pilkington. "In addition to simplifying the workflow between our client and server-based solutions, Monarch Power Client represents the first step in providing simple orchestration across our entire platform. By using the models developed in Datawatch Monarch Professional, and managing and securing them in a high availability server, our users can make their big data solutions available to every user."
Lastly, this new release fulfills the requirements of Section 508 Amendment to 1973 Rehabilitation Act Software Applications and Operating Systems.
