"Businesses should realise that data quality and master data management initiatives may hold the key to delivering improved business information, and therefore, it makes sense to pursue these initiatives even against the current economic background," said Andy Hayler, chief executive officer at The Information Difference. "The demand for data quality solutions continues to increase year over year, and companies like Trillium Software have expanded the breadth and depth of their data quality offerings to solve a wide range of information management challenges and improve the operational efficiency of businesses. Data quality will be an important consideration in the coming year and beyond."
"Our customers tell us every day that they need to do much more in the areas of customer relationship management, corporate compliance, and data governance. They realise the importance of achieving a complete and accurate understanding of all their informational assets," said Leonard Dubois, senior vice president of marketing at Trillium Software. "Important, independent research from credible organisations such as The Information Difference continue to validate our beliefs concerning the mission-critical nature of data quality, and their favourable placement and evaluations position us as a trustworthy partner worthy of long-term consideration by any company that has data quality challenges."
The research reportâs evaluation methodology hinges on a market landscape diagram that shows three dimensions of every vendor: market strength, technology and customer base. Market strength is made up of a weighted set of factors including revenues, growth, financial strength, geographic scope and partner network. Technology evaluates the technology breadth and variety of each solution, as well as the solutionâs depth of features and functionality and maturity. The actual technology providers were asked to submit responses to questions on a survey, and the results were evaluated, researched and reported on by The Information Difference analysts.
