Innovative Systems Recognized in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools for 13th Time in a Row

PITTSBURGH – May 7, 2019 – Innovative Systems (Innovative), a global leader in the development and delivery of high-performance enterprise data management and risk management solutions, is pleased to announce that it was chosen for inclusion in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools report. This year continues Innovative’s history of being positioned on the Magic Quadrant each year of publication since its inception in 2006.

According to Gartner, “Evaluating and selecting data quality tools is much less of a specialized IT task than it was formerly. It now requires much more collaboration with business leaders and users. Pricing models, total cost of ownership and the availability of skills in the market remain of key importance to buyers.”

Gartner also states that Niche Players within the Magic Quadrant “often have strong offerings for their chosen areas of focus and deliver substantial value for customers in those areas.” Innovative believes that its service, pricing, and value, along with its long history of leading-edge technology, are the foundation for its loyal customer base that has, for dozens of the largest organizations in the world, continued for decades.

“As one of only 15 organizations worldwide to be included in this important report, Innovative is proud to have been recognized,” said Robert Colonna, founder and CEO of Innovative. “Our data quality platform was developed through five decades of experience in improving data through artificial intelligence and our crowd-sourced knowledgebases that scan 100 billion+ data points annually. We were pioneers in this field, and this expertise has given us an edge that no other data quality software has.” Innovative’s high-performance Enlighten® enterprise data quality suite includes capabilities for data profiling and discovery, data cleansing, individual and corporate matching, address validation and geocoding, data enrichment, data monitoring, and a 360° view. Enlighten offers unrivaled processing speed, a business-user-friendly interface, and built-in knowledgebases that deliver high levels of data accuracy and enable rapid installation. All solutions can be deployed on-premise or via the cloud.

“Today’s world runs on data,” said Brandon Ekberg, Innovative’s senior vice president of global operations. “We understand the importance that data plays in every aspect of an organization. It’s no longer acceptable to have data that is ‘clean enough’ because inaccurate data costs organizations millions of dollars every year through wasted marketing materials, fines imposed on compliance departments, or lost customers due to poor service. In every area of a company, poor quality data affects the bottom line, and that is what why our clients depend on our products and continue to partner with us year after year.”
