Last week Gartner released its "Magic Quadrant" for Data Quality Tools vendirs, as reported in this news item. I wonder, though, with all the consolidation going on, and the focus on value-added applications that need to embed data quality technology (e.g., MDM, CDI, CRM, SCM, and other three-letter acronyms), whether the concept of "data quality" tools may soon be outdated? If data quality is imperative to the success of any data-oriented business application, then quality concepts must be architected into the fabric of the application development environment.
My prediction: infrastructure companies (RDBMS, Enterprise Architecture, Data Modeling tools, Application Development, Metadata Management Repositories, etc.) will soon be incorporating parsing, standardization, and linkage as part of their offerings.
