Markham, Canada, October 10, 2013 — Ataccama Corporation, a leading provider of data quality, master data management, and data governance software and services, announced today that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools [1].

“We believe being recognized by Gartner as a Visionary in the Data Quality Tools Magic Quadrant is a valuable affirmation for us as well as a great commitment to constantly improve our products to lead the recent industry trends,” states Michal Klaus, Chief Executive Officer, Ataccama. With Big Data knocking on the door, the need for data quality, master data, and data integration is now even more compelling. In order to help organizations process their immense data loads, Ataccama market-proven platform now also utilizes Hadoop as a distributed processing environment. “Many of our customers are embarking on Hadoop initiatives this year but they see a lack of relevant skills in the market, as a combination of Java, data processing skills, and MapReduce is really hard to find. We are happy to help lower this barrier by bringing our user-friendly data processing platform to Hadoop,” concludes Klaus.

Ataccama’s integrated platform focuses on data quality, master data management, and data governance, and includes substantial data integration capabilities. Powerful performance, scalability, ability to provide data in real time, and efficient Service-Oriented Architectures outline the foundation of the platform. The Ataccama product line, which includes DQ Analyzer, DQ Issue Tracker, Data Quality Center, Master Data Center, Reference Data Manager, and DQ Dashboard, therefore delivers a complex solution for data quality, master data management, and data governance.
