Dell has enhanced its data analytics business by forming a partnership with Datawatch Corporation.
Dell has integrated Datawatch’s interactive visualization and dashboarding capabilities directly into its Statistica advanced analytics platform.
Statistica, the data analytics platform from Dell, now empowers business users to stream data into compelling and interactive visual representations to better facilitate the sharing of information and discovery of hidden patterns, Dell said.
With Statistica’s advanced and predictive analytics features, organizations can predict future trends to identify new customers and sales opportunities, forecast industry shifts, explore “what-if” scenarios, and reduce the occurrence of fraud and other business risks.
Following the new partnership, Datawatch’s technology will serve as the permanent visualization engine for the Dell Statistica platform, with its visual discovery and dashboarding capabilities available natively to Statistica users, without the need for additional software licenses from Datawatch.
Dell has also enhanced Statistica by further developing the big data analytics module and integrating its Toad and Boomi product line. With this integration, Statistica gains a comprehensive data connectivity layer that enables users to connect to more than 164 data sources.
John K. Thompson, general manager, global advanced analytics, Dell Software, said, “Dell’s new partnership with Datawatch, in tandem with its aggressive cross-portfolio integration efforts, makes Statistica one of the most comprehensive, easy-to-use advanced analytics platforms on the market today.”
