Datawatch Report Mining Server (RMS) is a web-based report analytics solution that seamlessly integrates with CMOD to enable clients to perform real-time reporting and analysis on documents stored in their CMOD repository. Users can repurpose existing CMOD repository content for new applications, reporting and visualizations. RMS turns archived documents stored in CMOD into an analytical asset that can provide significant value to an organization, including:

  • Transforming an existing content management system into a "search-to-action" Big Data asset
  • Increasing productivity of report users by providing one click transformation of static reports into actionable formats such as Excel spreadsheets and eliminating cut-and-paste and/or rekeying of data into Excel
  • Reducing IT burden by eliminating the demand for ad-hoc reporting, sub-reports, or live database connectivity
  • Providing ad-hoc analysis, investigation and auditing capabilities on core corporate data stored in CMOD
  • Providing valuable data to incorporate into Datawatch's next generation visual data discovery solutions.

Information can be re-evaluated, organized, and integrated to provide a 360 degree view of any type of business issue or opportunity. The result is additional insight for improving business decisions, processes and productivity.

"In today's economy, businesses are challenged with making strategic decisions with trusted data located in disparate areas of their organizations – including content repositories. Datawatch RMS will allow IBM's CMOD clients to turn their repositories into virtual warehouses that can be mined for data sets and combined with other information throughout the enterprise to obtain a more holistic view of the business and accelerate decision-making," said Ben Plummer, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of Strategic Alliances for Datawatch.

Datawatch RMS can interface with IBM CMOD via WEBI, ODWEK and IBM Content Navigator. Datawatch and IBM will showcase the integrated solution and the new partnership at IBM's Information OnDemand 2013 customer conference at booth 1022-G November 3-7, 2013 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada or you can learn more by visiting www.datawatch.com/rms-cmod.
