I really like the data mining and data visualization capabilities, as well as the ability to take data from virtually any source, cleanse it, and send it off to virtually any other source or application.
Since migrating from the ever popular Monarch Pro 10.5 to Versions 11,12, and currently 13 on a .NET framework, the local memory usage of the application has risen quite a bit. I would like to see better memory allocation of the software to not bog down the system as much. I recently upgraded my computer to 16GB of RAM, and this has certainly alleviated many of my concerns.
I would also very much like to see this product usable in other environments, whether it is a native Linux environment as I know there are many users like myself that prefer that operating system, and the core stability and power of it.
The other, probably more popular alternative in this day and age, would be to see this utilized as cloud applications so regardless of the platform, the users have full capabilities wherever they are.
My recommendation for anyone that needs to get at data from some of the most difficult sources, try Datawatch Monarch. It has provided me some of the quickest turnarounds from data sources that would otherwise be impossible to retrieve manually. It is really a time saver when time is most critical .
The key aspect of what Datawatch has helped deliver is simple... Get the Data...Understand the Data... Share the Data. What once was very cumbersome with old legacy system reports, we can now harness the information these reports contain, and distribute them to the people that make the decisions, and give them quality and the knowledge they can trust what they are looking at.
