IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Data Catalog Software 2020 Vendor Assessment

By: Stewart BondResearch Director, Data Integration and Data Intelligence Software

Abstract

This IDC study provides an assessment of data catalog software applications and presents the criteria most important for companies to consider when selecting a data catalog application as part of a data intelligence solution. This assessment discusses both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that explain success in data cataloging and intelligence in organizational data enablement. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and one another. The study highlights the factors expected to be the most influential for success in the market now and into the future.

"Metadata management systems are not new to the data integration and intelligence software market, nor are they new to many organizations, which, if not invested in a commercial solution, are using spreadsheets and document repositories to maintain intelligence about data," says Stewart Bond, director, Data Integration and Intelligence Software research, at IDC. "A new generation of data catalogs have emerged in the market that can gather multiple types and new types of metadata across the enterprise, not constrained to one data management technology or analytics solution, and leverage automation to keep intelligence about data fresh and up to date. The modern data catalog provides essential capabilities in enabling the future of intelligence, where data-native workers are able to synthesize information, expand their capacity to learn, and deliver insights at scale."
