We believe that metadata management capabilities are critical for the efficient use of data lakes, which are enabling a new era of more robust and effective big data discovery and analytics.

Cambridge Semantics, the leading provider of graph-based Smart Data discovery and exploratory analytic solutions, was recognized in the August 2016 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions report by Gartner, Inc.

Cambridge Semantics was one of nine vendors to meet the criteria for inclusion in the report, including Adaptive, Collibra, Data Advantage Group, Global IDs, IBM, Informatica, Oracle and SAP. Gartner analysts recognized Cambridge Semantics for its Anzo Smart Data Platform, Anzo Smart Data Integration and Anzo Smart Data Manager solutions.

“We are extremely pleased to be included in this Gartner report that evaluates industry players in metadata management,” said Alok Prasad, president of Cambridge Semantics. “We believe that metadata management capabilities are critical for the efficient use of data lakes, which are enabling a new era of more robust and effective big data discovery and analytics.”

According to the report, “Metadata facilitates the understanding of an organization’s information assets and how they are managed. It serves as a means to realize additional value from an organization's data assets that, in turn, can enable business benefits. These benefits include improved compliance and corporate governance, better risk management, better shareability and reuse, and the ability to better assess the impact of change in the enterprise while creating both opportunities and threats.”

In the section on Market Trends, the report states, “Fueling smart machines and, ultimately, an algorithmic business, existing and emerging semantic approaches, data classification models and information analysis techniques will enable the information of everything — mapping relationships between the different data elements.”

“In harnessing data for business outcomes, data leaders must understand the flood of data in
multiple formats. Information has been available in disparate repositories for decades, but in today’s
digital business environment organizations face new demands to access and use data across these
repositories — by mapping relationships between the different data elements.”
