SAS Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools

SAS® DataFlux® Data Management Technology Positioned Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

CARY, NC  (14 Aug. 2012)  – SAS is in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner Inc.'s latest Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools . The company's SAS® DataFlux® data management technology was evaluated on a number of criteria, including functionality, integration, ease of use, customer support and product road map.

Gartner describes leaders as companies that "demonstrate strength across a full range of data quality functions, including profiling, parsing, standardization, matching, validation and enrichment. They exhibit a clear understanding and vision of where the market is headed, including recognition of non-customer data quality issues and delivery of enterprise-level data quality implementations. Leaders have an established market  presence, significant size and a multinational presence, directly or as a result of a parent company." 

"SAS is extremely dedicated to delivering quality products and services to our customers within the data management industry," said Jim Davis, SAS Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Enterprises appreciate the platform's ease of use and ability to quickly and easily integrate multiple data sources into a single, master source. By treating data like a corporate asset, our customers are able to derive key business information to make better, more informed decisions."

SAS recently announced that the company has fully absorbed its DataFlux subsidiary in an effort to bring the brand closer to its core business. The company recognizes the strong opportunities within the information management market and believes this move will allow it to fully capitalize on opportunities by leveraging both companies’ technology and resources.  

"We believe that by fully integrating DataFlux into the SAS organization, the product line will be able to take advantage of a stellar team of developers, sales staff, and the company's overall global resources," added Davis. "As we continue to execute on the information management product road map, we're looking forward to expanding our capabilities within big data environments and fully leveraging the federated data component of the platform."

DATAFLUX® POWERS  iJET

iJET International will use  SAS’ DataFlux Data Management Platform to streamline its data management initiatives and develop a master source for all corporate data.

"The single platform approach that SAS offers will allow us to minimize the complexity of our master data management initiative," said Richard Murnane, Director of Enterprise Data Operations for iJET. "The SAS DataFlux Data Management technology should provide quantifiable improvements within a few months."

The solution provides organizations such as iJET with the ability to plan and complete data integration, data quality and master data management (MDM) projects from a single interface. SAS has combined its advanced capabilities into a unified development and delivery environment, helping business and IT to work together on critical aspects of data management.
