8 top vendors for self-service data preparation products
The growing popularity of self-service analytics tools has resulted in a more flexible, iterative approach to data preparation, according to the new report “Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting a Self-Service Data Prep Solution, 2018–19.” Report author Paige Bartley, senior analyst for data and enterprise intelligence, says “The number of data consumers in the typical enterprise has grown massively over time, and over the last decade, business intelligence and visualization tools have increasingly added in guided functionality aimed at further expanding the scope of the user base to nontechnical business users.” Bartley offers his thoughts on eight of the top products in this space.
“The leading vendors, regardless of their architectural approach, are typically notable for their high scores in the data governance and the collaboration and machine learning categories in the technology features assessment,” Bartley explains. “Additionally, they edged out others in technology categories such as data manipulation, which had closely clustered scoring. For execution categories, market leaders had solutions that tended to score better on maturity and deployment.”
