    "Datawatch Modeler and PDF files:  Unlocking the Value from Data"

    DataExploiter _

      Impressive, where can we find old webinars like “invisible data”?

       

      Techniques shared on the today's webinar will help or improve any data extracting or analysis project.

      Thanks to Olly (instructor) and Pat(monitor).

          Hello John,

           

          Thank you! We'll have to ask Pat Wall, the community manager, to upload the old webinar on Invisible Data. The next project for me is for Wednesday 3rd December, I'm planing a webinar on automating Monarch/Modeler - it should be fun.

           

          Best wishes,

              Hi, Olly:

               

              I enjoyed your Oct 06 webcast and presentation very much, but I am unable to find the presentation deck within the Datawatch Community Content. I had understood this would be made available to the Webex attendees and Forum Members. Is there somewhere else I should look, please?

               

              Thank you,

               

              Mark

                  Hello Mark,

                   

                  Thanks for your note. The webinars on "Invisible Data" and "Modeler & PDF FIles" are online: http://www.datawatch.com/on-demand-webcasts/. I don't know if the slide decks make too much sense without the commentary - do you really need them? One of the things we set up Monarch Experts to do was to address the skills gap among Monarch users - 90% of whom are self-taught. We've helped 5,000 users in the forums over the last decade, and based on this we saw a huge mix of skills.

                   

                  Some users understood filters but didn't get summaries, some got trapping but couldn't deal with external lookups. When you add up the cost training someone through the official syllabus - two days Beginner, two days Intermediate, two days Advanced - it's an expensive business, both in training costs and staff time.

                   

                  So we offer a skills audit as a simple one hour online multiple choice exam, which helps you determine where the skills gaps are among your users and to design a bespoke training course that minimises both the costs and the impact on staff time. If this sounds like the sort of thing that might help, please do get in touch.

                   

                  Best wishes,

                      Thank you very much for your prompt and complete response, Olly. I agree

                      with you that, as stand-alone, the presentation decks would likely have

                      limited value.

                       

                      I have enjoyed using the Community Forum but until the last presentation a

                      few weeks ago, I was unfamiliar with Monarch Experts. I can see the solid

                      case for the Datawatch and Monarch Expert partnership. I will be checking

                      out the Experts webpage and will consider the Experts might be able to

                      help us.

                       

                      I have about 20 reports of whom maybe 15% use Monarch but none have had

                      formal training (except me). I fear that we have no QA checks for the

                      models built by the self-taught users and developing in-house training to

                      foster broder use of the application has been a non-starter. A skills test

                      might be an ideal place to start. I will look for more info on the Experts

                      page.

                       

                      Thanks again and best regards, Olly.
