According to the Gartner report, “The metadata management solutions market continues to demand more innovation and better execution to address the needs of automation (machine learning and semantic enrichment by search capabilities), and combined cloud and on-premises deployments. The technology continues to expand in its capabilities and support for multiple use cases. A growing ecosystem of system integrators and independent software vendor partners supports the most popular metadata management solutions.”
The report notes that, “In harnessing data for business outcomes, data and analytics leaders must understand the flood of data in its multiple formats. Data has been available in disparate repositories for decades, but in today’s digital business environment organisations face new demands to access and use data across these repositories — by mapping relationships between the different data formats.”
“Providing customers with the ability to manage and leverage metadata across the enterprise has been part of Informatica’s DNA from our inception,” said Amit Walia, executive vice president and chief product officer, Informatica. “It is integral to the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform, which uses metadata-driven intelligence to increase data management productivity across all relevant data types, use cases and users as our customers pursue their digital transformation initiatives and projects including data governance and analytics. We believe that Gartner’s positioning of Informatica as a leader in metadata management underscores our long track record of enabling customer success in these initiatives, and the new channels we continue to open for leveraging metadata in innovative and expanded ways.”
