Building on the alliance announced earlier last year between Datawatch and QlikTech, Datawatch has developed a software extension that allows QlikTech customers the ability to incorporate unstructured and semi-structured data into QlikView applications. With the launch of the Datawatch Unstructured Data Connector for QlikView, QlikView customers will be able to model and include sources like PDF, XBRL, HTML, text files, machine data, and many other non-relational sources of data into their data discovery dashboards and applications. Designed with the same user orientation as QlikView, this technology empowers business professionals to select the data they would like to include from these sources and easily incorporate that data into QlikView through a QVX file that includes both the data and metadata components. Also, like QlikView, these applications can easily be migrated by IT professionals into production ready, large scale deployments, by using the complete Datawatch Information Optimization Platform.
"We are excited about providing our customers the freedom and flexibility to use any source of data they need to analyze and understand their business," said Peter McQuade, Vice President of Alliances and Partner Sales at QlikTech. "By offering the Datawatch solution to our customers via QlikMarket, we are making it as simple as possible for them to get a leading solution for incorporating unstructured and semi-structured data into QlikView."
"Datawatch and QlikView are a natural technology pairing," commented Ben Plummer, CMO and SVP of Strategic Alliances of Datawatch. He continued by saying, "Over the last year we have seen a growing demand in our customer base to incorporate more data variety into applications like QlikView, and with the release of our QlikView connector we are able to make this process faster and easier for QlikView users."
The Datawatch Unstructured Data Connector for QlikView is available immediately via QlikMarket. Datawatch will market and sell the solution through direct sales and global channel partners. Both companies will be supporting the alliance with joint marketing, sales, and services programs.
