Solutions Review editors predict what will be included in the upcoming 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools.
Data and analytics leaders are anxiously awaiting the release of the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools. As the premier buyer-focused report in the industry, organizations base many of their yearly initiatives and purchasing decisions on Gartner’s research. Featuring a proprietary research methodology and an easy-to-grasp visual, the firm’s annual market analysis garners hype unparalleled in the enterprise business software sphere. Excitement surrounding the Gartner Magic Quadrant is on par with Apple’s keynote events in consumer technology.
The editors at Solutions Review share in the excitement as we near the eve of Gartner’s newest Magic Quadrant release. It’s in this spirit that our editors have compiled this shortlist of things we predict will be included once the report becomes available.
Denodo becomes a leader
In last year’s Magic Quadrant report coverage we said: “Denodo has separated itself slightly with a rightward move toward the leaders column. Denodo is now just a stone’s throw away from challenging Talend and Oracle in 2020.” Denodo is a data virtualization provider that helps its customer tackle use cases like logical data warehouse and data lake, data service marketplaces, and registry-style MDM. The provider offers a targeted product that reference customers use for connecting to diverse sources and federate data.
Denodo offers a unique product that looks to be gaining steam in the marketplace. The vendor has really ramped up its educational materials and marketing in an attempt to inform prospects of its benefits.
Qlik (Attunity) makes a statement
Qlik made its debut in 2019 after announcing its intent to buy Attunity in February. The merger saw Qlik pull in Attunity’s partner network, expand the company’s reach and strengthen its data lake management and cloud partnerships. Qlik formally announced the re-branding of Attunity’s products into the Qlik brand in January. The change applies to every product line Qlik acquired as part of the deal. Attunity products are now a part of Qlik’s overall data integration product portfolio. Qlik maintained the Attunity brand through 2019 so customers and partners could become aware of the merger.
Now offering perhaps the most broad data platform of any provider in this Magic Quadrant, we’ll be watching Qlik’s position closely.
SnapLogic shoots up the vertical axis
SnapLogic was added to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant in 2019. The provider is mostly known for its cloud data integration products that are judged in the SaaS-based integration market study. We expect SnapLogic’s score for ability to execute to be greatly enhanced in 2020. SnapLogic’s integration software can be utilized by a number of user personas and offers less-technical users to embed machine learning for automated guidance. This helps them to hasten integration flow development and reduce reliance on technical documentation. SnapLogic also touts a simple and straightforward pricing model and forward-thinking augmented delivery.
While we can’t predict a move like Denodo above, it wouldn’t surprise us to see SnapLogic and Information Builders battle it out for the top visionaries placement in 2021.
