Informatica was named the #1 data engineering vendor, beating more than 20 others in this year’s report
Informatica® (NYSE: INFA), an enterprise cloud data management leader, recently earned the top #1 ranking in the 2023 Data Engineering Market Study from Dresner Advisory Services. The report, which graded the top 25 data engineering vendors, evaluated vendors on three key capabilities:development and usability, process and transformation of data, and data sources and targets.
In addition to vendor ratings, 77% of report respondents said data engineering is critical or very important – an increase from 61% in last year’s study. Dresner indicated this reflects the increased demand for access to analytical data, as well as the increasing fragmentation of data sources and targets. Despite this urgency, the report also found only 26% rate their current approach to data engineering as highly effective.
“It’s a privilege to be recognized for our leadership in data engineering, particularly when placed shoulder to shoulder with so many other respected brands and vendors,” said Jitesh Ghai, Chief Product Officer, Informatica. “This, along with consistent recognition from other key industry analysts reinforces our market standing as an undisputed leader in the broader data management space, and the best of breed capabilities of our comprehensive Intelligent Data Management Cloud where we bring our customer’s data to life.”
