Collibra Recognized for Third Consecutive Year in 2018 Gartner Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications

New York, May 31, 2018 – Today, Collibra, the leader in enterprise data governance and catalog software, announced it was named a Representative Vendor in the May 2018 Gartner Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications. For the third consecutive year, Collibra was recognized by Gartner as delivering all the capabilities required in information stewardship.

The critical need for information governance enforcement is driving a growing market for packaged information stewardship solutions that support it. The Gartner Market Guide evaluates vendor solutions that share a common vision of anticipating how the market is evolving toward a purpose-built information stewardship solution.

According to the Gartner Market Guide, “Growth in the market for information stewardship applications is being disrupted by new technology capabilities in adjacent markets, such as data quality and metadata management, and new regulatory requirements, such as GDPR.”

The Gartner 2018 Information Stewardship Applications Report recognizes the following capabilities in vendor solutions:

  • Information Model
  • Business Glossary
  • Data Quality Monitoring and Profiling
  • Analytics (including a configurable dashboard for the consumption of information that reports on conditions, performances and situations)
  • Workflow/Exception and Task Management
  • Business Rules and Policy Management
  • Audit Trail/Corporate Memory
  • Playbooks or Preloaded Templates
  • Integration (to both ingest metadata from remote applications and systems in which data is being governed and/or stewarded, and to “push out” to those same systems any changes in policies)

Collibra is recognized in the report as providing all of these capabilities. The report also discusses the requirement for Information Stewardship applications to provide capability in an easy to use fashion for business people acting as information stewards. Collibra has always been focused on delivering this capability to all of the participants in the information processes, both business and technical users.

“We are very pleased to be part of the Gartner Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications again,” said Collibra CEO, Felix Van de Maele. “We believe our inclusion in this year’s report is a result of the continued dedication and focus Collibra puts on addressing information stewardship and data governance from a business user’s perspective. Having this complete set of capabilities, including a comprehensive data catalog, is essential for organizations to find, understand, and trust their data for business value.”
