Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of report analytics technology that delivers information optimization solutions, today announced the continued expansion of its international business with the opening of an office in Singapore and the appointment of Business Analytics veteran Karl Mouantri as managing director of Asia-Pacific business operations. The Singapore office will serve as the regional headquarters for the markets of South Asia, North Asia and Japan.
Mouantri brings a wealth of experience to Datawatch with nearly 25 years in performance management, business development, management consulting and business intelligence services. He joins Datawatch from Endeca Technologies, where he served as managing director of Asia-Pacific, successfully establishing that company’s operations throughout the region. Endeca was acquired by Oracle in late 2011. Prior to Endeca, he was a managing director of BPM Partners, responsible for the Asia-Pacific region, and he previously held the post of vice president of Asia-Pacific for Hyperion Solutions, where he was a founder of that company’s operations throughout Asia-Pacific.
“More and more enterprises throughout the Asia-Pacific region are recognizing the need to analyze and optimize all types of information, including structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, to improve and enhance their businesses,” said Michael A. Morrison, president and CEO of Datawatch. “As a leader in this growing market and emerging segment, Datawatch is now seizing this opportunity to expand our leadership and global presence. Karl is an excellent addition to our team and brings deep business analytics domain expertise and a keen understanding of how to develop significant business operations in the Asia-Pacific region. His success in securing strategic accounts, developing channels and building strategic partnerships, coupled with his extensive understanding of the local and emerging markets will accelerate our growth in the important Asia-Pacific region. Karl understands the unique challenges associated with addressing 100% of the information within organizations, and he will play a critical role in delivering our innovative information optimization applications to customers in this growing region.”
“With the power to optimize all types of information and deliver it to everyone throughout the enterprise, the Datawatch information optimization platform is perfectly positioned for the Asia-Pacific region and its emerging markets,” said Mouantri, managing director. “In my nearly 20 years in the Asia-Pacific market, I have never found a more compelling and cost-effective analytic solution, one that leverages the investments that organizations have made in reporting infrastructures, Business Intelligence and Big Data to drive better business results. The Datawatch solutions are well-suited for both the developed markets and the emerging markets, and I look forward to working closely with my colleagues at Datawatch to leverage our opportunities in this market.”
Mr. Mouantri holds an MBA from Schiller International University in Paris. He also has a Bachelor of Business Administration from Schiller International University in London. A Swedish national, Mr. Mouantri speaks English, French, Italian, German, Swedish, and a good notion of Japanese.
