New Version of Datawatch’s ETL and Data Distribution Server Enables Organisations to Utilise Data Trapped in PDFs, HTML Files, Reports, Databases and Spreadsheets

Datawatch Europe, leading provider of report management, data transformation and analytic solutions announce the launch of Monarch Data Pump Version (MDP8). MDP8 is a server-based information delivery and data ETL solution which automatically imports, transforms and delivers customised data mined from report files, databases, spreadsheets, ODBC data sources, HTML files, and now PDF files, and includes the ability to export and deliver the data in multiple formats, including natively as a PDF file.

Other new features in MDP8 include:
• Report monitoring. MDP8 monitors file folders constantly for newly generated reports and automatically extracts, transforms, loads and distributes the required data;
• Zip compression. MDP8 can deliver, via e-mail, customised data as a compressed Zip file, with optional password protection;
• Robust alerting. Should a MDP8 process fail, administrators not only receive an alert, but also the job log, for faster trouble-shooting;
• Password management for .NET scripts. For enterprises applying customised .NET scripts to MDP8 processes, individual passwords are stored securely;
• Improved OLE DB functionality; and
• New XML transformation module. This optional module allows users to automate processing of reports and other business documents into valid XML, using projects created by Datawatch’s VorteXML Designer software.

“Monarch Data Pump V8 makes it easier than ever to create and deliver customised information and data across the enterprise,” said Rob Graham, Product Manager “With MDP8’s new ability to use information locked in PDFs, MDP8 empowers enterprises to utilise even more data trapped in inflexible formats. Data locked in PDF files is now freed for business intelligence with MDP8. MDP8 enables enterprises to utilise trusted, verified data sources such as reports, PDF files, databases and more, to solve their business issues, with virtually no new programming required.”

MDP8 utilises Datawatch’s Monarch “Report Mining” engine, the de facto standard in mining and transforming data buried within existing report output files. Built on Microsoft’s .NET framework, MDP8 mines and transforms the data within existing reports, alone or in combination with data from other sources, on a scheduled, fully automated basis, to create and deliver new customised data views matching user needs.

The customised data views created by MDP8 can be uploaded to databases such as SQL Server or Oracle via OLE DB/ODBC, or saved as PDFs, Excel spreadsheets and templates, Access files, CSV files and more. MDP8 reports and files can be delivered via RSS (Really Simple Syndication) news feeds, e-mail, FTP, HTTP, WebDAV and to specified file folders on the network. MDP8 is based on the open Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, allowing faster enterprise deployment and more complete integration with SQL Server, IIS (Internet Information Server), Exchange and other Microsoft solutions.

Monarch Data Pump V8 requires Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP1 or Windows 2003 Server, and .NET Framework V1.1+.

Monarch Data Pump V8 can read and process projects and models created by Monarch Pro Version 5 and higher.


£4,750 + VAT and delivery and it carries an annual support maintenance and upgrade protection contract at £855 + VAT (mandatory)
