SAS Data Integration Technology Recognized in Gartner's Magic Quadrant

SAS, a provider of business analytics software and services, has been positioned in Leaders Quadrant in Gartner's (News - Alert) latest Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools.

Precisely, SAS DataFlux data integration technologies including SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server, SAS (News - Alert) DataFlux Data Management Platform, SAS DataFlux Federation Server, SAS Data Migration and SAS/ACCESS achieved this prestigious title for their “ability to execute and completeness of vision.”

SAS Data Integration technology delivers a complete solution for data management in organizations across different industries. The company’s strong data integration capabilities are combined with emerging technologies such as big data and cloud computing.

These data integration technologies deliver data quality and federation capabilities to align even more closely to the converging data management landscape. They provide an interactive, visual data integration development environment that enables collaboration and easy reusability, all with a single point of IT administration, the company said.

To include in Gartner's Magic Quadrant, these solutions were evaluated on a number of criteria, including functionality, integration capabilities, global market presence and product road map. Vendors included in this list are strong in the more traditional data integration patterns. They also support newer patterns and provide capabilities that enable data services in the context of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).

“As big data becomes pervasive, we view data integration as a critical building block to any information management initiative,” said Jim Davis, SAS senior vice president and chief marketing officer, in a statement. “When it is coupled with SAS’ data quality products, customers can be confident that their enterprise data will be thoroughly transformed into complete, accurate and consistent information ready for analysis.”

Recently, SAS won a contract from the State of North Carolina's Office of the State Controller to develop the Criminal Justice Law Enforcement Automated Services (CJLEADS) application. The project replaced the manual process of integrating historical criminal data from multiple systems.

Recently, SAS announced that using SAS analytics Harland Clarke delivers CRM solutions that help banks and credit unions acquire, engage, retain and grow relationships with customers and members.
