Datawatch Names Jon Pilkington Vice President Of Products

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of information optimization solutions, today announced the appointment of business intelligence industry veteran Jon Pilkington as Vice President of Products.  Mr. Pilkington will be responsible for the overall product management strategy and direction for Datawatch's information optimization solutions as the company seeks to capitalize on rapidly growing opportunities in Big Data and the cloud.

Mr. Pilkington brings more than two decades of business analytics experience to Datawatch, including 18 years in the business intelligence market.  He joins Datawatch from Sonian Systems, a public cloud email archiving vendor, where he served as vice president of marketing and product management.  Mr. Pilkington helped that company raise more than $20 million in venture funding while establishing Sonian as a global leader in public cloud email archiving.  Prior to Sonian, Mr. Pilkington was vice president of marketing and product management at Metatomix, a real-time data integration vendor.  Mr. Pilkington previously spent 13 years at Cognos in a variety of executive roles, including vice president of business intelligence product management, vice president of global solution architects and vice president of North American field marketing.

"Jon's breadth of experience in the traditional business intelligence space as well as in the emerging cloud arena makes him an excellent addition to our executive team," said Michael A. Morrison, president and CEO of Datawatch.  "Big Data and the cloud represent two exciting high-growth areas for Datawatch and we need strong leadership to help us most effectively seize this opportunity.  We expect Jon will have an immediate impact on our product strategy and product roadmap, and accelerate the delivery of innovations in new markets at an advanced pace."

"In order to best address the challenges of Big Data, organizations must develop strategies to manage the variety of data sources and formats that exist in the enterprise," said Mr. Pilkington.  "The trick is to capture and transform these different types of data in a way that makes it possible to easily correlate and share the information that is contained in the data.  Nobody does this better than Datawatch.  Throughout my years in the business intelligence industry, I have seen many organizations fall far short of the 'whole story' simply because data rarely presents itself in a form perfectly ordered and ready for processing.  Datawatch's solutions are uniquely capable of transforming complex, semi-structured data into purposeful information to improve decision-making throughout an organization.  I am eager to help Datawatch continue to distinguish itself at this very exciting time in the market."
