META Group, Inc. announced the availability of its newest Vendor &Technology Evaluation report, covering the data quality (DQ) software tool market. Managing data quality and consistency across the enterprise is a critical and growing issue for many organizations faced with integration challenges fueled by initiatives such as CRM, ERP and data warehousing. Based on its findings, META Group expects DQ adoption rates to expand 20-30 percent annually during the next three to five years. The report evaluates vendors that offer solutions used in the identification and remediation of problems with enterprise information assets.

"Information should be considered part of the IT portfolio, and data quality solutions should be seen as a means to increase the value of that portfolio, in addition to reducing business risk and identifying business opportunity," said Doug Laney, vice president and director with META Group's Technology Research Services, and lead author of the report. "The data quality market will increasingly intersect with the data integration solution, compliance solution, business application, and e-commerce market. However, DQ solutions will mature independently, improving their openness to integration with solutions in these other markets."
