SAP announced that independent analyst firm Gartner Inc. has named SAP as a Leader in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions.”
The report recognized SAP as a leading provider based on its “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision,” after evaluating SAP’s metadata management solutions, including SAP Data Hub, SAP Information Steward, and SAP PowerDesigner software.
According to Gartner: “Demand arising from a variety of data and analytics initiatives drives strategic requirements for metadata management solutions. This Magic Quadrant will help data and analytics leaders find the most appropriate vendor and solution for their organizational needs.”
Metadata is the backbone of every critical business-oriented and technical project in a company.
“The practice of metadata management — describing, inventorying and understanding data — has become exponentially more complicated with the growing number, type and location of data sources,” said Andreas Wesselmann, senior vice president, SAP Products & Innovations Big Data, SAP SE. “Yet, it is the key to building a trusted data foundation to run intelligent operational and analytical systems and drive better outcomes. We believe that this latest recognition from Gartner shows that SAP understands enterprise metadata management and is delivering agile data orchestration to tackle the chaos.”
SAP solutions for enterprise information management support capabilities to understand, integrate, cleanse, manage, associate and archive data to optimize business processes and analytical insights.
