Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools, 2006
Business drivers, such as speed to market and agility to change business processes and models, are forcing organizations to manage their data differently. Data integration is a critical component for an enterprise information management strategy that can address data-oriented issues.
Gartner's Magic Quadrant for data integration tools evaluates companies that offer a platform with a broad spectrum of data integration capabilities, ideally with a common metadata repository and data quality functions. Platforms were ranked primarily on functionality for ETL, federation, replication, synchronization and process integration, as well as their capabilities, such as service-oriented architecture (SOA) readiness and support for unstructured and semi-structured data.
