SAS a Leader in 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools

For the 12th year, SAS is named a leader in Gartner’s October 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools*. SAS was recognised based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“Now more than ever, data is driving strategic decision-making,” said Mike Wake, Head of Data Management, SAS UK & Ireland. “Businesses are utilising this wealth of information to make more effective decisions and drive revenues. However, businesses must be mindful that this approach is only effective when these decisions are made on a foundation of quality data. Fortunately, SAS has developed tools that make the isolation of key data faster and easier. They will guide organisations through the data quality process, from profiling and identifying problems, to the establishment of an effective data quality system.”

According to Gartner, “Leaders demonstrate strength in depth across the full range of data quality functions, including core functions (parsing, standardisation and cleansing), profiling, interactive visualisation, matching, multidomain support and business-driven workflow. Leaders exhibit a clear understanding of dynamic trends in the data quality market; they explore and execute thought-leading and differentiating ideas; and they deliver product innovations based on the market's demands.”

SAS data quality products include SAS® Data Management, and SAS Data Quality.

  • SAS Data Management is built on the SAS Platform with a solid data quality foundation that helps organisations improve, integrate and govern data. No matter where the data is stored – from legacy systems to Hadoop – SAS Data Management helps organisations access the data they need and create data management rules. The product gives organisations a standard, repeatable method for improving and integrating data – without additional cost.
  • SAS Data Quality delivers trusted data by supporting traditional and emerging data sources – such as Hadoop, Impala, Amazon Redshift and more – throughout the entire data life cycle. By improving data where it lives, SAS provides faster and more secure data access. With data constantly flowing in and out, businesses rely on SAS to establish repeatable processes that build and maintain high-quality data.

The newest release to the SAS Platform at the end of 2017 builds on SAS’ expertise in data quality and introduces a new product, SAS Data Preparation. SAS Data Preparation simplifies and expedites data access and integration without requiring coding knowledge, bringing data quality and data preparation for analytics to even more parts of an organisation.

“Analytics and operational endeavours need high-quality data, fast, to be effective,” Wake said. “SAS will continue to be a leader in this space and add features and functions to its data quality offerings to meet customer needs in this dynamic market.”
