Gartner Inc.’s August 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools places SAS in its Leaders quadrant, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. This is the seventh consecutive year that SAS has been named a Leader. *
“As businesses face the challenge of integrating previously siloed data, whether it be structured, unstructured and semi-structured, across their organisation, it’s essential to have a solution in place that works at a fast speed and to scale,” said Laurie Miles, Director of Analytics, SAS UK & Ireland. “We are delighted to have been included in the Leaders quadrant, which further validates SAS’ innovative offering in areas such as self-service data prep and the use of machine learning in data discovery and integration.”
According to Gartner, “The biggest change in the market from 2016 is the pervasive yet elusive demand for metadata-driven solutions. Consumers are asking for hybrid deployment not just in the cloud and on-premises (which is metadata-driven combined with services distribution), but also across multiple data tiers throughout broad deployment models, plus the ability to blend data integration with application integration platforms (which is metadata driven in combination with workflow management and process orchestration) and a supplier focus on product and delivery initiatives to support these demands.”
Miles added, “Metadata is at the centre of SAS Data Integration technologies. With this strong foundation coupled with built-in integrated data quality, we’re confident our customers will launch their analytics projects much quicker and with confidence.”
SAS Data Integration technology can speed integration processes by up to 66 per cent. Breaking down data silos helps users boost productivity, empower business users to access the data they need and be confident that the data is ready for anything.
