ANNAPOLIS, Md., Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DATUM, a leading provider of data governance and stewardship software, today announced they have been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the Metadata Management Solutions Magic Quadrant for its Information Value Management® platform.
The report states that "the growing need for organizations to inventory and leverage data assets continues to drive strategic initiatives on metadata management and the growth of its solutions. In fact, by 2020, 50% of information governance initiatives will be enacted with policies based on metadata alone…It is important to note that this understanding of metadata goes far beyond just technical facets; it is used as a reference for business-oriented and technical projects and builds the foundations for describing, inventorying and understanding data for multiple use cases such as information governance or analytics." 1
"We are excited to be positioned as a leader by Gartner," said DATUM CEO Will Crump. "It goes without saying that our ability to co-innovate with our customers has been crucial in developing our unique approach to data governance which incorporates not only metadata management, but also discovery, data governance and stewardship management in a comprehensive offering."
