SAS® Data Integration recognized for completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Because data integration technology breaks down data silos and boosts productivity, today's organizations are more confident than ever that their data is ready for anything. SAS Data Integration, which is built on a strong foundational metadata strategy with integrated data quality, can speed integration processes by up to 66 percent. 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.
"With organizations continuing to develop data integration strategies that blend structured, unstructured and semistructured data, it’s important to select a data integration solution that can integrate a variety of data sources quickly," said Todd Wright, Global Product Marketing Manager for Data Management at SAS. "We believe inclusion in the Leaders quadrant further validates SAS' solutions and continued innovation in areas including self service data prep and the introduction of machine learning to link data integration and data discovery."
The biggest change in the market from 2016 is the pervasive yet elusive demand for metadata-driven solutions. Consumers are asking for hybrid deployment not just in the cloud and on-premises (which is metadata-driven combined with services distribution), but also across multiple data tiers throughout broad deployment models, plus the ability to blend data integration with application integration platforms (which is metadata driven in combination with workflow management and process orchestration) and a supplier focus on product and delivery initiatives to support these demands.
