Collibra Named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions
In its 2016 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions, Gartner positions Collibra as a Leader in this report.
Metadata management has waxed and waned in perceived importance over the years, but today it is gaining new attention. The reasons: new regulatory requirements that demand documentation of data and analyses, the increasing complexity of enterprise information, and the growing realization that using data is the key to competitive advantage.
At Collibra, we know that the metadata capabilities are the foundation of data governance. This is why the Collibra Data Governance Platform contains a sophisticated and flexible engine for gathering, organizing, and enriching metadata. It is this enriched metadata that gives meaning to the data and direction to those who use it and take care of it. The Magic Quadrant survey supports this point: results show 90% of survey respondents ranked data governance as a priority driving their metadata management improvement.
We feel particularly proud that of all the vendors evaluated, Collibra is positioned second highest in our ability to execute. We believe our dedication to our customers, and our delivery of a complete solution, including technology, education, community, professional services, and a robust partner ecosystem means that we can deliver metadata management solutions for many organizations.
Our strategy at Collibra is to build a complete data governance and stewardship platform, where each individual capability is best-in-class. Earlier this year, Gartner recognized Collibra in the Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications. This recognition, combined with our leadership in metadata management, shows that our strategy is succeeding. We are constantly improving our solutions, and we are pleased that Gartner has recognized our ability to deliver at this level.
We continue to invest in metadata technology, and in developing solutions to metadata challenges faced by our customers. And, we are proud to be recognized as one of the leading solutions in this market.
