SAS a Leader in 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools

Gartner Inc.’s July 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools places SAS in its Leaders quadrant, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. This is the sixth year that SAS has been named a leader.*

“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. “We believe 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.”

According to Gartner, “Data integration remains central to enterprises' information infrastructure. However, in the age of digital business, along with the growing demand for autonomous and user-initiated algorithmic processes, data integration is feeling pressure to become far more fluid and dynamic. Integration as a postdeployment effort is being replaced by demands for active information management. Applications are no longer permitted to be silos first and integrated second.”

Thousands of organizations use SAS® Data Integration offerings including SAS Data Management, SAS Data Integration Studio, SAS Data Loader for Hadoop, SAS Event Stream Processing and SAS Federation Server to enhance analytical and operational efficiencies. SAS Data Integration technology helps users boost productivity, share the workload between business and IT users and be confident that data is ready for use.

The report’s authors note that “Enterprises pursuing frictionless sharing of data are increasingly favoring tools that are flexible in that they can be designed once for delivery across multiple platforms, mixed architectural and broad deployment without significant rework.”

“In addition to SAS’ Data Integration technologies, we provide exceptional customer support and form long-term relationships with our users, to ensure they’re always getting the most out of their implementation,” added Magne. “SAS is known for its stability and reliability, as well as robustness and effectiveness.”
