BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH) today announced the general availability of Datawatch Angoss KnowledgeSTUDIO for Apache Spark, enabling organizations to act more confidently with their data and rely on consistent, trustful results in making better business decisions.

Data science teams that are modeling in a Big Data environment, and outside of it, can use Angoss KnowledgeSTUDIO for Apache Spark to efficiently build analytic workflows using large, small and wide datasets in a Spark environment. Datawatch Angoss market-leading decision tree interface can now be used by data scientists and business analysts, without having to move data out of Spark.

As with other Datawatch solutions, Angoss KnowledgeSTUDIO for Apache Spark requires no coding expertise.  Users working to address business problems can now support advanced modeling with open source packages such as SparkML, Spark SQL and file systems accessible via Spark interfaces. Data preparation and profiling allow for easy data extraction and manipulation, and data can easily be transformed for modeling.

“Angoss KnowledgeSTUDIO for Apache Spark allows business users to create predictive models at scale, from a variety of datasets regardless of their size,” continued Chahine.  “This more efficient use of compute resources, especially in cloud environments, shortens processing cycles and can reduce costs.”
