Gartner has named Adaptive as a Leader, in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions

Adaptive Inc., the Metadata Management Platform company, is delighted to announce that Gartner, in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions, has named Adaptive as a Leader based on its ability to execute and for completeness of vision.

Adaptive’s flagship product, Adaptive Metadata Manager™ helps organizations solve complex information management challenges by providing a semantic platform that can enable Data Catalog, Data Governance, Business Intelligence and Regulatory Compliance programs across large enterprises.  Adaptive’s suite of products are leveraged by blue-chip organizations in many industry sectors and provide a significant competitive offering for our third-party alliance partners who apply their domain expertise to implement their own best practices and solution offerings.

Executive leadership is required to implement an enterprise-wide data governance capability that protects an organization’s data assets properly especially with the recent regulatory mandates on data privacy.  Adaptive provides a platform that enables this core capability to be implemented very quickly and leveraged by many stakeholders within the organization.

 Adaptive CEO, Jeff Goins, comments: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from Gartner.”  Goins further notes: “Based on our vision of building and providing an extensible platform we believe that clients gain the ability to solve many information management problems with one investment in Adaptive.  The most recent release of our Adaptive Metadata Manager product provides a powerful combination of machine learning and data governance capabilities which are key to understanding and managing data assets on a holistic scale.”

 According to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions report:

“Demand arising from a variety of data and analytics initiatives drives strategic requirements for metadata management solutions.”

 “Metadata and its uses go far beyond technical matters. Metadata is used as a reference for business-oriented and technical projects, and lays the foundations for describing, inventorying and understanding data for multiple use cases.”

 “Metadata supports understanding of an organization’s data assets, how those data assets are used, and their business value. Metadata management initiatives deliver business benefits such as improved compliance and corporate governance, better risk management, better shareability and reuse, and better assessments of the impact of change within an enterprise, while creating opportunities and guarding against threats.”

“Leaders are frontrunners with offerings that support the full range of metadata management capabilities. They exhibit a clear understanding of, and vision for, where the market is headed, and are good at meeting customers’ requirements for a variety of use cases. They support both business and technical metadata scenarios, with the help of strategic partnerships to optimize delivery of their solutions. They establish market trends by providing new functional capabilities and by identifying new types of business problem to which they can bring significant value. Leaders have an established and/or fast-growing market presence and a multinational presence.”
