Most organizations understand that in order to remain competitive and improve customer relationships, they must make better use of their existing information assets. Business Intelligence(BI) solutions can help organizations by providing efficient, timely and accurate insight from their big data assets. Fortunately, these BI solutions have seen significant gains in adoption and investment throughout the past several years, with new products being released with a high degree of consistency as a result.
The Datawatch Report Mining Server(RMS) was built to help companies overcome the challenges involved in data extraction and text-based reporting within IBM’s highly popular Content Manager OnDemand. A quick look at the finer points of this new tool can help leaders better understand what types of returns to expect following deployment.
Datawatch RMS is web-based and automation-rich solution, allowing users to more seamlessly convert reports into formats that will be better-suited to provide actionable analysis. This essentially means that a business is able to generate far more value from its ECM apps and systems by turning them into powerful intelligence programs.
Report Mining Server is also targeted at easing some of the strain that would otherwise be placed on the shoulders of IT professionals through the process of minimizing additional hardware and infrastructure investment needs. Because it can quickly integrate with a range of content management systems, myriad businesses will be able to take advantage of the server.
As the IT market continues to move in the direction of self-service capabilities and options, many business leaders are looking for analytics solutions that are user-centric. Datawatch RMS obliges this demand, strengthening analytics through ad-hoc analysis provided on a self-service basis.
Regardless of which stage a business might be in its analytics program, this tool can help to bring all of its various data sources into the foreground and maximize their value in a relatively short period of time. This solution can also work to reduce the need for error-prone manual intervention, boosting accuracy in the process.
A forward-looking solution
When you consider how quickly IT is evolving today, business leaders should be focused upon the protection of mission-critical assets, and Datawatch RMS can help in this regard as well. By integrating the tool with existing reporting systems, companies will be proactively safeguarding their legacy solutions from becoming antiquated.
What’s more, the solution can enhance data governance and visibility to add a layer of control to security and risk management strategies. There is simply no way to maximize the overall value of data without first protecting the information from loss and theft, and auditability improvements can be just the medicine for struggling firms.
Make no mistake, as competition continues to heat up across all industries, companies that have the intelligence and understanding of their customers, will be better positioned to excel in the saturated markets of the future. By leveraging a tool such as Datawatch RMS to improve data accuracy and value, business leaders will be putting themselves in the driver’s seat with respect to sound decision-making every step of the way.
