Precisely Named a Leader for business-first Data360 data catalog Software

Master Data Management partner, Precisely, has been named a leader for data catalogue software by the 2022 IDC Marketscape report

Today’s large companies deal with complex data landscapes comprising hundreds, or even thousands of applications and tens of thousands of datasets. Aberdeen Research finds that most environments are growing by more than 30% per annum and are becoming increasingly diverse – with data sets coming from source systems, data warehouses and other on-premises processing engines, reporting tools and the cloud.

Traditional, IT-centric data catalogues are implemented to give a centralised view of these complex environments. However, these IT-centric catalogues often fail to meet the needs of business users – such as master data stewards, data scientists and decision-makers – as they failed to provide business context, made it difficult to find and understand data without a deep technical understanding, and were difficult to configure and adapt to additional business-centric use cases such as finding data for analytics, improving data quality, managing data privacy and governing reference and master data.

Precisely’s modern, cloud-native catalogue and data governance platform provide actionable intelligence to support a range of business use cases to improve data trust. Precisely’s comprehensive solution ensures business and IT teams have accurate and robust insights into critical data’s meaning, location, and data quality.

Precisely’s business-first approach has led to the platform being positioned as a leader in the 2022 IDC Marketscape report: Data Catalog Software 2022 Vendor Assessment. According to the report, Precisely should be considered “when looking for a business-focused solution with integrated data catalog, data quality, and data integration capabilities.”

Key differentiators of Precisely’s business-first data catalogue include:

  • Documenting ROI by connecting business initiatives with critical assets and data management capabilities
  • Building trust with dynamic data governance and quality metrics linked to business outcomes
  • Ramping up onboard and adoption with flexible metamodel and workflows
  • Optimising insights into data pipelines, lineage, and observability
