"The data modeling paradigm has largely been restricted to that of information contained in relational databases," said Harvey Gross, CTO, of Datawatch.  "Increasingly, we are seeing more and more value added resellers (VARs) and implementation partners who want to apply the benefits of data modeling to information beyond the relational database world.  Our partnership with Lifeboat Distribution serves those VARs and partners."

"Our resellers have long seen the value of Datawatch Monarch for modeling and mining the semi-structured data that is trapped in customers' existing reports," said Dan Jamieson, vice president and general manager, Lifeboat Distribution.  "With the new Monarch 11, they'll be able to expand their solution offerings into more strategic – and more lucrative – customer data management and business intelligence initiatives."

Monarch 11, introduced in July 2011, is a self-service report modeling and report analytics offering for business users and executives.  Monarch 11 gives users a brand-new, intuitive user interface, enhanced data modeling, and improved scalability.  

Monarch 11 is the modeling engine that powers the Monarch Report Analytics platform, a platform that takes report mining to a new level: it is a complete enterprise solution that transforms static, isolated data from existing reports, invoices, statements and other documents into a dynamic framework for self-service analysis and visualization.  The Monarch Report Analytics platform automates the processes that enable users to easily access, extract and incorporate data from any combination of existing reports already published inside or outside the enterprise, then create, publish and distribute the resulting dynamic, interactive reports throughout the enterprise – without requiring the time, expense or expertise of valuable IT resources.
