LONDON, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading Analyst Firm Selects Innovative Companies in Information Governance & MDM
Diaku, a leading Information Governance software provider, today announced it has been named a Gartner "Cool Vendor" in the March 30, 2015 report titled "Cool Vendors in Information Governance and MDM, 2015" by Guido De Simoni, Roxane Edjlali, Saul Judah, Bill O'Kane, and Andrew White. The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors in the market that enable information managers to unlock the value of information and achieve their governance and MDM goals. Gartner's report points out, "Massive data growth, new data types, the risk of litigation, regulatory scrutiny and privacy risks have all created an urgent need for information governance."
The report highlights a number of planning assumptions, including that "By 2017, 50% of information governance initiatives will incorporate information advocacy - processes to enable an information culture - to ensure they are value-driven." It also recommends information managers leverage emerging vendors and innovative solutions for socialising and enriching their approach to information governance.
"It's an honor to be named a Gartner 'Cool Vendor'," said Patrick Dewald, co-founder of Diaku. "Information governance is a critical component of the modern organisation, and being able to relate data back to business use is foundational to map investment to business benefits and ROI. Working with our clients to bring understanding of their data across silos and see their information governance programmes mature with strong business support shows the real-world application of Diaku Axon. We believe the recognition from Gartner demonstrates the market evolving beyond data dictionaries and into a connected understanding of data and how organisations use it. This is our core goal - to bring business, data and technology together."
