The 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools, authored by Mei Yang Selvage, Saul Judah and Ankush Jain and published on Oct. 24, 2017, positions Informatica furthest and highest on the completeness of vision and ability to execute axes, respectively, for the fifth year in a row.

According to the Gartner report, “The accelerating pace of digital business is disrupting traditional approaches to data quality by creating a complex data landscape and generating new and urgent business requirements. Data quality vendors are competing by enhancing existing capabilities and introducing new capabilities, such as machine learning, interactive visualization and predictive/prescriptive analytics.”

The authors of the report note, “The data quality tools market remains vibrant, owing to greater adoption on the demand side and consequent growth in revenue on the supply side. We continue to see high demand for data quality tools from many industries and organization sizes, including midsize organizations (which traditionally tended not to buy them). This demand is driven both by organizations continuing to invest in digital business initiatives and by organizations seeking to cut costs, optimize business operations and monetize data assets. Therefore, we see data quality tools being applied to a wide range of use cases, including big data and analytics, data integration, data migrations, information governance and MDM.”

The report continues, “the data quality tools market has continued to show strong revenue growth — 7% in 2016 in constant currency, compared with 5.2% in 2015 (see ‘Market Share: Data Integration Tools and Data Quality Tools, Worldwide, 2016’); its revenue is estimated to have reached $1.37 billion in 2016, up from $1.28 billion in 2015. This market is still among the fastest-growing in the infrastructure software subsector of the enterprise software market (see ‘Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2016’). We forecast compound annual revenue growth of 10% in this market for the period 2016 to 2021.”
