CHELMSFORD, Mass., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of information optimization software and services, today announced a competitive win to replace ASG Software Solutions' DocuAnalyzer with Datawatch Monarch Professional for more than 700 hundred users at one of the world's largest financial institutions. DocuAnalyzer, a private label edition of older versions of Datawatch's Monarch Professional software, has been in use at this financial institution for over 10 years. After ASG's DocuAnalyzer OEM agreement with Datawatch terminated in 2011, this financial institution began looking for a modern alternative that could provide the flexibility and functionality to access and analyze documents stored in ASG's ViewDirect archiving platform, and that offered a seamless upgrade path from DocuAnalyzer. After an extensive evaluation, this financial institution selected Datawatch Monarch Professional to replace the outdated and less functional version of DocuAnalyzer. Because DocuAnalyzer is simply a private label edition of previous versions of Monarch Professional, the upgrade path to the current version of Datawatch Monarch Professional will be seamless.
"Over the years, this financial institution created literally thousands of models with DocuAnalyzer that they used to extract valuable insights from the billions of records stored in ASG ViewDirect. Our ability to provide this important customer with a seamless upgrade path to the current, supported release of Datawatch Monarch Professional was a critical consideration in moving forward with this upgrade," said Ben Plummer, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Strategic Alliances for Datawatch. "When our OEM agreement with ASG terminated, it was important to us that DocuAnalyzer customers who were adversely impacted by this event, could obtain uninterrupted service from Datawatch with the opportunity to upgrade to the most current, supported version of Datawatch Monarch Professional, with its improved features and functionality. More importantly, the Datawatch Monarch Professional solution offers the absolute best return on investment as it leverages all existing DocuAnalyzer reports, projects and models and end users familiar with the look and feel require no additional training. Additionally, by transitioning to the latest Datawatch release, these organizations will have the ability to leverage the complete Datawatch Information Optimization solution if they wish to deliver great functionality to their users. We are pleased to be able to support this valuable customer through the upgrade process and look forward to assisting other DocuAnalyzer customers move to our current release."
