CHELMSFORD, Mass., Nov. 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Many data scientists spend more than half of their time preparing data before they are able to focus on analysis. Collecting the data, getting it into the proper formats and making sure it is clean takes time. Add to the mix multiple data structures, governance issues and coordination with data stewards, and traditional data preparation can further delay actual data analysis - jeopardizing timely decisions for business leaders.

On Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 11:00 am ET Datawatch Corporation's (NASDAQ: DWCH) CMO, Dan Potter will host a webinar to discuss how organizations can use self-service data preparation tools to more quickly prepare data for analysis. Titled "Accelerate your Analytics with Data Prep," the webinar will feature speaker and Principal Analyst Michele Goetz of Forrester Research and will focus on:       
  • How to easily access multi-structured "dark data" content like reports, JSON, PDF, log files
  • How data preparation can speed up analytics
  • How analysts can become part of the governance process
  • How data prep creates a collaborative environment between analysts, stewards and data management pros
  • How data governance and data management pros have a window into data utilization 

"The amount of time and effort traditional data prep takes really stalls great insights. It doesn't have to be that way," said Potter. "With the right tools and processes in place, data analysts should be able to cut their time in half…freeing them up to focus on the actual analysis of the data and helping to guide their organizations to better, faster business decisions."
