Gartner positions SAS as a Leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools

Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“As organizations continue to wrestle with a complex data landscape, the ability to integrate data has become increasingly critical,” says Kim Kaluba, Senior Product Marketing Manager for SAS. “Meeting these challenges calls for a solid data integration strategy and a data management solution that delivers the needed technology capabilities to exceed business goals.

Businesses today depend heavily on advanced analytics and machine learning (ML) to deliver real-time insights to make decisions, raising the stakes for data integration. According to Gartner, “the data integration tools market is seeing renewed momentum driven by urgent requirements for hybrid/multicloud data management, augmented data integration and data fabric designs.”

“The evolution of data integration tools must embrace automation and ML processes, and support hybrid and multi-cloud environments,” says Kaluba. “Whether data is simple or complex, or in the cloud, SAS’ data management products provide organizations customized and modern data system solutions that cut through the chaos.”

SAS offers multiple products that include data integration such as SAS Data Management, SAS Data Integration Studio, SAS Federation Server, SAS/ACCESS®, SAS Data Loader for Hadoop, SAS Data Preparation and SAS Event Stream Processing.

In 2020, Leaders in this [data integration tool] market have started delivering on the data fabric promise – i.e., their ability to balance collecting data with connecting to data. Gartner**
