We are proud to announce that we have been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions for its Information Value Management® platform. This is the second consecutive year in the Magic Quadrant after appearing for the first time in 2017 as a Leader.
We believe that more enterprises are understanding the vast amount of value that lies within their data and in turn, we are seeing the demand for our business-facing metadata management platform growing. In fact, according to Gartner, “By 2020, most data and analytics use cases will require connecting to distributed data sources, leading enterprises to double their investments in metadata management.”
“Because we are the experts in data value, we created a platform that can directly impact outcomes in order to drive business value for customers. Customers that need to discover, understand, connect, and measure the complete enterprise context and lineage of their data, consistently choose DATUM”, said DATUM CEO Will Crump; “And we are very pleased Gartner has recognized DATUM as a leader for a second consecutive year in what we consider a significant vendor evaluation where the voice of the customer carries a lot of weight”.
The 14 vendors included in the Magic Quadrant were evaluated on criteria falling into two categories: Completeness of vision and Ability to execute. This includes capabilities of metadata repositories, business glossary, data lineage, impact analysis, rules management, semantic frameworks, metadata ingestion and translation
“The Gartner evaluation process places a lot of weight on customer references. So we feel that the honor of being named a leader multiple times is largely the result of how our customers view our solution. We are pleased that Gartner provides such a significant platform for our customers to express their satisfaction in our vision and solution,” said DATUM CEO Will Crump.
