IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Data Catalog Software 2022 Vendor Assessment


Stewart Bond

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.

"Data catalogs are central to the collection and activation of data intelligence, but gathering and curating intelligence about data is not trivial in modern data environments characterized as having data that is highly distributed, diverse, and dynamic," says Stewart Bond, research vice president, Data Integration and Data Intelligence Software research at IDC. "Every vendor in this evaluation approaches data intelligence differently, and it has become clear that data catalogs are becoming part of broader platforms that capture and curate data intelligence to activate it in data governance, quality, DataOps, self-service, collaboration, and control activities. Buyers will need to carefully evaluate each vendor's solution capabilities against data intelligence requirements within organizational, regional, environmental, and technology constraints."
