"Business professionals face unprecedented time-to-value pressures, regulatory and competitive challenges," said Phil Galati, chief executive officer at Trillium Software. "They have to make data-driven business decisions quickly as part of a self-service approach, and they need flexible data quality solutions that can be implemented rapidly. Unlike many of our competitors, Trillium Software possesses a long and solid track record of success and sole focus in the data quality market, and can be implemented within 30 days to help clients achieve the highest level of data assurance in the shortest amount of time."

"Leaders demonstrate strength across a full range of data quality functions, including profiling, parsing, standardization, matching, validation and enrichment. They exhibit a clear understanding and vision of where the market is headed, including recognition of multidomain data quality issues and delivery of enterprise-level data quality implementations. Leaders have an established market presence, significant size and a multinational presence (directly or as a result of a parent company)."

According to the research, "the data quality tools market continues to grow strongly. Gartner estimates that it reached $1.13 billion in software revenue at the end of 2013. This translates into 13.2% growth in constant-dollar terms over 2012, which had brought 9.9% growth over 2011. Gartner forecasts that this market's growth will accelerate during the next few years, to almost 16% by 2017, bringing the total to $2 billion. This market is among the fastest-growing in the enterprise software sector."

Mr. Galati continues by saying, "Our customers tell us there is increasing demand to show rapid return on investments made in Big Data automation, Cloud Computing, CRM, MDM and business analytics. Couple this with the pressure to quickly respond to market opportunities or compliance requirements in a cost-effective way, and you have an environment where business professionals are seeking out data quality leadership in order to solve very real data challenges quickly. Based on our expertise and focus, we guarantee business value and data quality project success with proven best practices and leadership because we completely understand -- and know how to address -- all our customer's data challenges."
