The launch of Monarch Version 8 will be held at The Institute of Directors on Friday 22nd April 2005, with focus on "The Business as Usual Approach to Compliance Imperatives"
Datawatch Europe, leading provider of report management, data transformation and analytic solutions, today announced the immediately availability of Monarch Version 8 Standard and Professional Editions. Monarch is the industry-leading analytics tool that allows PC users to easily extract, analyse and export data from any existing computer-generated report and other data sources without programming. Monarch Standard Edition uses reports as a source of data, while Monarch Professional Edition uses reports and adds the ability to import and combine data from other sources including databases, spreadsheets, ODBC data sources, HTML files, and now PDF files.
PDFs NOW AN EASY SOURCE OF ANALYSABLE DATA
Portable Document Format (PDF) files are very popular in many industries, including government, legal and financial services, as a means to create and distribute digital documents. Reports, statements, bills, financial filings and hundreds of other types of business documents are transformed every day into PDFs for delivery to users. However, PDF files were designed for passive viewing, not active analysis. With Monarch V8 Professional, all that data locked in PDF files becomes an important source of new business intelligence. Users now can easily extract the information in PDFs for analysis and for export to spreadsheets and databases.
Rob Graham, Monarch Product Manager says "Monarch has always been the desktop analytics tool of choice for users to unlock the vast amounts of critical data stuck in reports and other static business documents." He goes on to comment "Now with the explosion of information locked in PDFs, Monarch is indispensable. Monarch V8 Professional quickly converts PDFs into dynamic data that can be analysed, filtered, sorted and exported in a variety of standard formats. Datawatch have also added other powerful enhancements to Monarch V8 without sacrificing any of its overall ease of use. Monarch continues to strike the best balance in the industry between BI features and common end user requirements - no programming or database expertise required - which is why it has been licensed by tens of thousands of organisations worldwide."
