Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools
March 1, 2017
The data integration tool market was worth approximately $2.8 billion in constant currency at the end of 2015, an increase of 10.5% from the end of 2014. The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic, creating a new need for rapid data integration. This need for rapid data integration requires tools and platforms with increased ability to read, analyze, and react to local and foreign metadata in a dynamic model with distributed processing capabilities.
