Data Management solutions meet at the intersection of Big Data and business analytics. These tools allow for the ongoing care of vital data so that it may be readily and continually available for analysis, the process by which insights are discovered. Thus, Data Management platforms may be seen as mediators between all of the data an organization collects for future use, and a grand organizer that makes tidy analysis possible. Data-driven businesses are increasingly viewing Data Management solutions as necessary to help them govern data from a variety of sources. Gartner speaks of an evolution going on in this software market right now, with customers demanding tools that support a wide variety of data types that integrate and include interoperable services tiers for managing and delivering data.
Whether its inclusion in the most recent Gartner Magic Quadrant, the release of an interesting new tool, or the securing of a new round of funding, these are the top 8 Data Management vendors we are keeping our eye on for 2016 and beyond:
