1. Summary

The success of any data-related project depends on the quality of data. Enterprise customers manage massive amounts of data, and it’s imperative that data is reliable so that strategic business decisions can be made faster.

Bad data can lead to biased machine learning (ML)-based decisions, damaging brand trust and customer satisfaction. The impact of bad data on organizations ranges from revenue and productivity loss to system outages and missed opportunities.

That is where data quality platforms can help. By ensuring that data is more reliable, enterprise data-quality initiatives can improve operational efficiencies, employee productivity, customer satisfaction, and revenue.

This Radar report will help enterprise buyers become familiar with vendors offering data quality platforms focused on the detection of data quality issues. Meaning, the solutions do not remediate data quality problems, but they actively monitor and validate data quality and let users know when it’s compromised. Most of the platforms monitor data right after it is ingested; therefore, they can prevent compromised data from reaching target systems and consequently causing business problems. Some platforms also offer root-cause diagnostics to guide users to the specific source data responsible for detected quality issues.

All the platforms reviewed in this report provide a unified environment for data quality validation and monitoring. Platforms in this report can work well for both small and large companies whose day-to-day operations depend heavily on data and its applications.
