KPMG Relies on Datawatch Monarch Self-Service Data Prep Platform to Speed Time
to Analysis

Professional Services Giant Uses Datawatch with Tableau to Perform Faster,
Accurate and More In-depth Assessments of Healthcare Clients' Financial
Performance

BEDFORD, Mass., 2016-11-15 14:55 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datawatch Corporation
(NASDAQ:DWCH) today announced that KPMG is utilizing the Monarch self-service
data preparation (prep) platform to access, blend, cleanse and prepare data for
visualization and further analysis in Tableau. Many business users across the
KPMG organization are relying on Monarch. Its Healthcare and Life Sciences
Practice, in particular, has been utilizing the platform for more than three
years to expedite assessments of its clients’ financial performance. What used
to take a team of people up to 12 weeks to complete can now be accomplished in
approximately five weeks, resulting in substantial cost savings for KPMG’s
clients.

The KPMG Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice helps healthcare providers
analyze their revenue cycles, identify where they may have operational
shortcomings and determine how they can improve performance. As part of that
process, KPMG must obtain and blend data from each client’s multiple disparate
systems to create point-in-time snapshots of the respective healthcare
provider’s business. Traditionally, this data was difficult to extract and
consume; in fact, there were certain types of data that KPMG couldn’t access at
all, such as 835 Payer Remittance files. When Michael Duke, managing director
at KPMG and long-time user of Monarch arrived at the firm in 2013, he
introduced the Datawatch platform as the solution to the practice’s data
preparation problems.

Datawatch Monarch is equipping KPMG’s business analysts to easily and rapidly
mine data from any source, in any format (e.g. CSV, PDF, Excel and text-based
extracts, etc.), and prepare it for analysis. The nature of the work KPMG
performs for clients is very content rich, requiring team members to understand
client data to manipulate it. Monarch makes it simple for business users to
apply their knowledge and develop repeatable models that extract the right data
for each assessment as well as ensure data accuracy and consistency – all
without having to be IT savvy or employ advanced ETL processes.

“Datawatch Monarch is a powerful self-service solution that not only radically
reduces the time we spend on data prep for each client assessment, but also
gives us the ability to expand the breadth and depth of our analysis,” said
Duke. “Before employing Monarch, we used to have to make predictions about a
client’s financial performance improvement based on only 30 days’ worth of
data. Data prep was a hefty, manual process. Now, we can almost effortlessly
take a year’s worth of transaction-level data, equating to millions and
millions of rows, and prepare it for visualization in Tableau. As a result, our
predictions of clients’ performance outcomes are far more informed and
precise.”

KPMG’s Healthcare and Life Sciences practice has been utilizing Datawatch in
tandem with Tableau since adopting the solutions three years ago. Everyone in
the practice gets a desktop license of Tableau from day one of their
employment, and it’s used for all analysis on client sites. Data is prepared in
Monarch and pushed to SQL; then visuals are overlaid on the new data sets in
Tableau.

“With Monarch, KPMG’s team can prep less and analyze more, saving its clients
considerable money and enabling the professional services firm to maximize its
internal resources,” said Dan Potter, CMO, Datawatch. “This is an exemplary use
case for our self-service data prep platform. We are empowering the business
analyst to solve ‘the problem of the moment’ by giving them the ability to
easily access and manipulate data, without reliance on IT. By combining
Datawatch with Tableau, KPMG can tap all of the underlying data it needs and
swiftly make that data analytics-ready so that team members can maximize the
insights they gain from the Tableau platform.”
