According to Gartner, "The biggest change in the market in 2018 is the shift from an anticipated future demand for metadata-driven solutions to a current market expectation that these solutions will be delivered as part of the data integration platform. There is currently no forgiveness for inadequate metadata capabilities. Another major shift is customers asking for hybrid deployment (cloud and on-premises), as in 2017, but now with the expectation of multicloud and cloud-to-cloud integration."
"We believe inclusion in the Leaders quadrant validates SAS' solutions and continued innovation in the area of data integration and data for all," said Kim Kaluba, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Data Management at SAS.
