Redwood City, CA - 18 August 2016

Informatica Positioned Highest for “Ability to Execute” for its Metadata Management Solutions 

Informatica, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Informatica as a Leader in its 2016 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions report. In the report, Informatica is positioned the highest on the ability to execute axis. The report, which was published on August 15, 2016, is Gartner’s first for metadata management solutions.

According to the report, “Gartner predicts that the metadata management solutions market will double in size in 2017 (from an estimated value of $170 million in 2016) — driven by the information of everything, proliferation of data from the IoT, big data and data lake forces, and requirements for organizations to know what data they have — as information is recognized as an asset with an attached financial value (see ‘The Growth of the Metadata Management Tool Market Is a Reality’).”

The authors of the Gartner report note, “In harnessing data for business outcomes, data leaders must understand the good of data in multiple formats. Information has been available in disparate repositories for decades, but in today's digital business environment organizations face new demands to access and use data across these repositories — by mapping relationships between the different data elements (see ‘Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2016: At a Glance’).”
