Press Release, News
NEW YORK, NY - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has named the company a Visionary in the research firm's Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools . This recognition is based on the evaluation of the company's iWay Data Quality Suite.
According to the report, "Given the scale and complexity of the data landscape across organizations of all sizes and industries, tools to help automate key elements of the discipline continue to attract more interest and to grow in value. As such, the data quality tools market continues to show substantial growth, while exhibiting innovation and change."
Information Builders' iWay Data Quality Suite provides a unified framework for organizations to profile, cleanse, and enrich enterprise information. The solution enables companies to analyze data from multiple sources and formats, assess its quality, and immediately correct any integrity issues so that they can realize the full potential of their information assets. The iWay Data Quality Suite facilitates:
- A real-time data quality firewall
- Data governance capabilities for comprehensive remediation of data quality issues
- Merging information across multiple data sets to promote consistency
According to a recent global survey, Information Builders conducted in partnership with IDG Research Services, concern over data quality is a chief inhibitor of more pervasive BI initiatives. The iWay Data Quality Suite is designed to address this issue, giving enterprises confidence in the validity of all information even as new data is generated throughout the course of transactions and events. As a result, companies can embrace more broad-ranging information delivery strategies to numerous internal and external stakeholders alike.
Gregory Dorman, senior vice president and general manager of iWay Software, said: "Information Builders believes organizations can realize numerous advantages by deploying information access to all employee groups, as well as external partners, suppliers, and customers. However, the success of these pervasive information delivery strategies is reliant upon the quality, consistency, and accuracy of the data. As such, robust data quality capabilities are a critical component of any information management platform. We're honored to be recognized as a visionary by Gartner once again in this area, and look forward to helping more organizations realize maximum returns on their information capital."
