SAS® Data Integration recognized for broad, integrated portfolio and product reliability.
Increased productivity and faster time to insight are only the beginning. When you're working from a unified platform – with embedded data quality and common metadata that spans both data management and analytics – anything is possible. That's what SAS provides. And we consider our position as a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools to be a reflection of our strong commitment to that instrumental technology.
"Over the past year, SAS has been working hard to enhance our integration capabilities with emerging data sources such as Hadoop, Hive, Impala and Amazon Redshift, as well as add functionality to best address our customers' data problems and increase speed and efficiency,” said Matthew Magne, Global Product Marketing Manager for Data Management at SAS. “Inclusion in the Leaders Quadrant further validates SAS' vision and ability to execute in areas like self-service data preparation, data virtualization and streaming data analysis."
The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic.
