SAS Placed in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools
- by Radu Cotarcea
For the sixth year, SAS is placed in Gartner's Magic Quadrant - the Leaders quadrant - for Data Integration Tools based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to Gartner, “Data integration remains central to enterprises' information infrastructure. However, in the age of digital business, along with the growing demand for autonomous and user-initiated algorithmic processes, data integration is feeling pressure to become far more fluid and dynamic. Integration as a postdeployment effort is being replaced by demands for active information management. Applications are no longer permitted to be silos first and integrated second.”
Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings or other designation. Gartner research publications consist of the opinions of Gartner's research organisation.
Matthew Magne, Global Product Marketing Manager for Data Management at SAS, comments: “Over the past year, SAS has been working hard to enhance our integration capabilities with emerging data sources such as Hadoop, Hive, Impala and Amazon Redshift, as well as add functionality to best address our customers’ data problems and increase speed and efficiency. We believe inclusion in the Leaders quadrant further validates SAS' vision and ability to execute in areas like self-service data preparation, data virtualization and streaming data analysis.”
