CHELMSFORD, Mass., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Datawatch Corporation

software and services, today announced support for Hadoop and Hive with the
release of Datawatch Data Pump 11.6. Semi-structured data such as complex
reports, machine data, EDI streams, high volume print output, text and PDF
formats remain very difficult to process in Hadoop, but now Datawatch can
provide business analysts and those most familiar with the data, the ability
to take advantage of the massive scale offered by Hadoop's distributed
architecture. This support continues to expand Datawatch's ability to
deliver the greatest data variety for Big Data and business intelligence

"Our ability to access and store information in Hadoop represents a
significant step forward in our ability to support Big Data applications,"
said Jon Pilkington, Vice President of Products for Datawatch. "As
organizations look to leverage a greater variety of information stored in Big
Data systems, like Hadoop, Datawatch's ability to access and extract value
from these sources provides a critical component to their applications."

Datawatch also announced its participation in the MapR Advantage Partner
Program with support for loading data directly into Hive on MapR, in addition
to moving data to Hadoop via Direct Access NFS™. "MapR is a fast, easy to use
Hadoop distribution, with excellent connectivity to the Windows platform via
NFS making moving data much easier. With 5 9s availability, it can meet the
needs of demanding enterprise customers," said Pilkington.

"We are very excited to have Datawatch join our community. We believe that
Datawatch will increase the value of MapR customers' investment in Hadoop by
bringing a great variety of trusted enterprise data into this high performance
analytics environment," said Alan Geary, Senior Director of Business
Development, MapR Technologies.
