According to Gartner, Inc., “The term ‘data quality’ relates to the processes and technologies for identifying, understanding and correcting flaws in data that support effective information governance across operational business processes and decision making. The packaged tools available include a range of critical functions, such as profiling, parsing, standardization, cleansing, matching, enrichment and monitoring.”1

“Data quality has never been more important,” said Mike Tuchen, CEO, Talend. “It’s essential that companies can trust the data fueling their business decisions while delivering it at the speed required to remain on the cutting edge. We believe our position in the Leaders quadrant validates our vision and unique approach where data quality and governance are built-in and managed throughout the data value chain. We’re thrilled that Gartner has again positioned Talend as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant report.”
