In this evaluation, DATUM's top scores were in the Policy Management & Types, Stewardship Management, Data & Governance Valuation, Project Management, and Revenue Growth criteria.

Forrester cited DATUM as a Strong Performer stating, "DATUM is head-to-head with our Leaders in terms of product offering, aligning very well with pragmatic business users' concerns" and later states, "This vendor has one of the best sets of capabilities for supporting typical data governance initiatives."

Software applications for data governance stewardship are an emerging and fast growing market. In the age of the customer where digital business is crucial to gaining competitive advantage, today's modern enterprises need to leverage data as a strategic asset to drive new product development, enhanced customer experiences, and operational excellence. Until now, tools for data governance have focused on IT-related usage including data quality and data management. New tools for data governance focus on policy management driven by both technical and business staff – stewards.
