Informatica Positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools

Celebrating 10 Consecutive Years as a Leader, Informatica Positioned Highest and Furthest on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision Axes

Redwood City, Calif., November 28, 2016 – Informatica®, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Informatica as a leader in its 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools report. Informatica has been positioned as a leader based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision. 

The complete report, published November 23, 2016, including the quadrant graphic, is available at: https://informatica.com/data-quality-magic-quadrant.html.

Celebrating its tenth consecutive year as a leader, Informatica was positioned the highest and furthest to the right on the axes for ability to execute and completeness of vision in the 2016 report.

Gartner research directors Saul Judah, Mei Yang Selvage and Ankush Jain observed, “CIOs, chief data officers (CDOs), and data and analytics leaders are held to account for information that supports a landscape of changing business processes. Increasingly we are seeing organizations seek to monetize their information assets, curate external with internal data using a trust-based governance model, and apply machine learning as they explore the value of the Internet of Things (IoT). Unless adequate focus is given to improving data quality, many of these business opportunities cannot be fully realized1.”

Further, the Gartner report states, “The data quality tools market continues to show strong revenue growth, driven by cost, process optimization and digital business initiatives. Applying data quality tools to existing and emerging business scenarios will enable data and analytics leaders to deliver greater business value2.”

The Informatica Data Quality portfolio delivers a full suite of data quality and data enrichment capabilities to transform bad data into quality data, whether the data is on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment. Easy-to-use tools enable all types of data to be managed to the desired level of quality in support of any type of data project, regardless of complexity, data volumes, formats and sources. Implementations can start in the cloud using Informatica’s Data Quality Cloud services and expand to on-premise for hybrid deployments. This ensures data quality within a single application or process using self-service tools and provides the ability scale to support the largest Hadoop-based big data projects. No matter the size of the implementation, Informatica’s industry-leading ease-of-use empowers non-technical users such as information stewards and business analysts to share in the responsibility for data quality and governance across the enterprise, thus reducing the burden on IT.

“We believe that for Informatica to have been a leader for a full decade in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools reports means that Informatica continues to innovate and customers continue to rely on Informatica for their most demanding data quality and governance challenges, both in the cloud and on-premise.” said Amit Walia, executive vice president and chief product officer, Informatica. “Informatica’s data quality management approach ensures that all key initiatives and processes are fueled with the most relevant, timely and trustworthy data to drive superior business performance supporting on-premise, cloud and big data requirements. These customer challenges span from attracting and retaining customers, to more effectively managing risk and compliance, to uncovering new markets and outperforming the competition.”
