BEDFORD, Mass., March 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH) today announced that its chief product officer, Jon Pilkington, will present to business leaders and analysts on the next evolution of data preparation and analytics in his presentation, "Team-Driven Analytics: Making Self-service, Governance & Collaboration a Reality," at the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit. Occurring on Monday, March 5 at 11:45 a.m. in Texas C room, Pilkington's session will provide best practice guidelines for optimizing data discovery in a secure, governed manner and insight into how to build a data strategy model that will lead to greater operational efficiency and analytics insights. Held in Grapevine, Texas from March 5-8, 2018, the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit will gather business users, data analysts and executives who are fueling digital transformation, creating monetization opportunities, improving the customer experience and reshaping industries. Pilkington's presentation will build on this theme by providing insight into team-driven analytics through a data intelligence solution that combines advanced data preparation features (e.g. automation, cataloging, stewardship and governance) with a data marketplace, social media platform attributes and machine learning for personalized recommendations. "Today's organizations need a centralized data intelligence strategy that provides business users and executives with the analytic insights to grow their market presence," Pilkington said. "An essential part of the strategy will be to have technology solutions that incorporate an integrated data marketplace where users benefit from the agility of easy, but controlled access to any data. And by putting trusted, governed data into the hands of employees, companies will experience better business outcomes."
