Data Integration Magic Quadrant Methodology 

Gartner defines data integration “as the discipline comprising the architectural patterns, tools and methodologies that allow organizations to access, harmonize, transform, process and move data spanning various endpoints and across any infrastructure.”

The market research firm says the market for data integration tools includes vendors “that offer a stand-alone software product or products used to enable the construction and implementation of data access and data delivery infrastructure for a variety of data integration scenarios.”

The data integration software category includes tools with support for bulk/batch data movement, data virtualization, data replication and synchronization, stream data integration and data services orchestration.

Tools covered in the Magic Quadrant report offer capabilities such as data movement topology, complex data transformation, augmented data integration support, metadata and data modeling support, data preparation capabilities, design and development support, DataOps support, integration portability, data quality and governance support, runtime platform support, service enablement support, API services, a range of connectors and adaptors, and support for delivery of data integration functionality as cloud services.

Vendors must also meet a number of revenue or customer count, geographic, and market presence thresholds to be included.

Vendor positioning in the magic quadrant is determined by two axes: vendors’ ability to execute and their completeness of vision. Based on the analysis results vendors were identified as leaders, challengers, visionaries or niche players.

Evaluation criteria for a vendor’s ability to execute cover a company’s products and services, sales and marketing execution, pricing, market responsiveness and track record, customer experience, operations and overall viability. Evaluation criteria for a vendor’s completeness of vision include market understanding and strategy, sales strategy, product strategy, business model, innovation, vertical market and industry strategy, and geographic strategy.

Vendors in the Leaders quadrant “are focused on new demands for automation in various aspects of data integration,” the Gartner report said. These include design, ingestion, schema mapping, schema drift detection and corrections, next-best transforms, automated lineage and impact analysis, and infrastructure management and orchestration. “These capabilities for augmented data integration demand a new data integration design – one that supports a balance of connect and collect data integration strategies,” according to Gartner.
