The product is especially useful when you have real-time and/or time series data to analyze. If you have more mundane, simpler requirements, other products might do the job you need for less money (there are even some decent open source visualization tools you can find.) I know the product is very widely used in capital markets applications to monitor and analyze risk and price and volume changes; if you're working in that area, I don't think there's a better tool to use.

It is suitable for companies without a proper data warehouse. He does very well in sales analysis and KPI management. It builds mini data warehouses, is good at data fusion, and interfaces well with other systems. Also, the export function and filter can greatly help you to get only the information you want in the format you want.

Pros
Altair Engineering, Inc.
  • Creating a basic model to extract data from a report is very easy.
  • Advanced features like Calculated Fields and External Lookups allow you to augment the raw data.
  • You can create a "project" to automate the data extraction. Combined with Datapump (a separate DW app), you can fully automate the process once the raw report is generated.

Cons
Altair Engineering, Inc.
  • Recently, we had some major sticker-shock when we wanted to upgrade Data Pump. It is an exceptional product, but when the price jumped from $6,000 to over $60,000, it was impossible to get the funds approved internally for the upgrade.
  • We also paid for yearly maintenance contracts which included Professional Services, but rarely found those services beneficial. However, we did receive all software upgrades for Datapump as part of the contract which we found to be very beneficial. However, with the new pricing, that is not longer the case.

  • You have to make sure that the information thrown makes sense and is well organized.
  • There is a risk when saving information in the cloud from computer attacks

Even though we do not utilize it on a daily basis, I do hope my current company renews it's license. If not, I intend to purchase myself.

We can easily provide the information that the user wants and customize it according to their needs. Sometimes a certain report can be used as the basis for creating another one that saves you time to deliver critical information in the shortest amount of time with the best results. Builds mini data warehouses, is good at data fusion, and interfaces well with other systems.

I love how easy it is to create prototypes due to its simple simulation and modeling system. Other than that, the codes are usually simple and not very complex and it's built-in debugging adds to that ease. is an excellent tool for analyzing, classifying, and visualizing data. I do this most of the time to help me grab huge collections of data.

Datawatch is very good value of money compared to QlikView; QlikView is really more of a BI tool and has a lot of functions that I didn't need. Datawatch is very strong in the real-time area where Tableau, Panorama, and Qlik don't do very well. If you need to set up a visual monitoring dashboard, Datawatch is the best product I've seen for that. if you want to do a lot of in depth statistical analysis of large databases, Tableau is probably a good option.
