Talend named a Leader in Magic Quadrant for Data Quality

05 Aug 2020

Data integration and integrity solution provider Talend has been recognised by Gartner as a Leader in data quality tools in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Solutions. 

This is the third consecutive time that Talend has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant.

According to Gartner, “As organisations accelerate the speed of digital transformation and innovation, there is a greater market demand for data quality solutions. This stems from a need to overcome the challenges from complex and distributed data landscapes, and new and urgent business requirements. Data and analytics leaders are facing intensive pressure to provide “trusted” data that can help business operations to run more efficiently and making business decisions faster and with greater confidence.”

“Data quality is essential, bringing the clarity and decisiveness necessary to organisations as they navigate today’s market,” says Talend CMO Lauren Vaccarello.

“Trusting the quality in your real-time data helps businesses pivot quickly and make critical decisions. We are thrilled that Gartner has again positioned Talend as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant report. We think this recognition validates the strategic importance of our offering.”

Talend Data Fabric data integration and integrity platform simplifies all aspects of working with data for analysis and use, driving critical business outcomes. 

It includes a suite of apps to ensure enterprise data is complete, clean, compliant, and readily available to everyone who needs it throughout the organisation.

In the report, Gartner notes: “By 2022, 60% of organisations will leverage machine-learning-enabled data quality technology for suggestions to reduce manual tasks for data quality improvement ... Data quality initiatives have traditionally been mandated to fulfill compliance requirements and to reduce operational risks and costs. Increasingly, data quality is also a necessity when amplifying analytics for better insights and making trusted, data-driven decisions.”

Talend recently achieved Elite Status in the Snowflake Partner Network.

The achievement recognises Talend's track record for delivering enterprise data management technologies from its Talend Data Fabric suite of apps, such as Stitch Data Loader and Talend Cloud for Data Quality and Data Governance, to customers on Snowflake's cloud data platform.

It was among the companies that Forrester invited to participate in its publication, The Forrester Wave Enterprise Data Fabric, Q2 2020 evaluation. 

It is cited as a Leader in the evaluation and received the highest score of any vendor evaluated in the Current Offering category and earned the highest possible scores, 5 out of 5, in 15 of the 25 criteria evaluated by Forrester, including criteria such as Data Catalogue, Data Quality, and Data Lineage.
