TAMPA, Fla. - June 9, 2008
- DataMentors, the industry-leading full-service data quality and management solutions company, announces its inclusion in the June 2008 Gartner "Data Quality Tools Magic Quadrant" report.
For vendors to be included in the Magic Quadrant, they must meet specific criteria, including: offer stand-alone packaged tools positioned, marketed and sold specifically for data quality applications; deliver functionality that addresses, at minimum, profiling, parsing, standardization, cleansing and matching; support this data functionality in more than one language; maintain an installed base of at least 50 production customers for their data quality products; and demonstrate, via customer references, the use of the tools at an enterprise (cross-departmental or multi-application) level.
DataMentors President Bob Orf said that as companies continue to accumulate massive amounts of data, their IT departments will come under increased administrative pressure and turn to hosted data quality and business intelligence solutions as methods for managing the influx of data. The leaders in the data industry will be those companies that deliver against this strategy, as it is the logical next step in the evolution of data management. As Cap-X funding comes under increased scrutiny, this approach will provide greater database fluidity, require less time to implement or upgrade, and is more cost-effective than CPE solutions. "We're pleased that Gartner included DataMentors in its Magic Quadrant for 2008. We believe the continuing enhancements to our existing capabilities and the planned new product introductions slated for release later this year will continue to move DataMentors up and to the right in the Magic Quadrant's placements over the coming years," said Orf.
