Semarchy Named a Cool Vendor in MDM by Gartner

Leading Analyst Firm Selects Innovative Companies in the MDM Market

Menlo Park, CA – May 26, 2015 

Semarchy, the Data Convergence Company today announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” based on the March 30, 2015 report titled, “Cool Vendors in Information Governance and MDM, 2015 by Guido De Simoni, Roxane Edjlali, Saul Judah, Bill O’Kane and Andrew White at Gartner, Inc. The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors that may help information managers reach their information governance and MDM goals.

Gartner’s report points out, “Effective information governance and master data management (MDM) programs unlock the value of information in information silos.” The report also provides recommendations for information managers involved in information governance and MDM programs including the following:

  • Support your data ecosystem for improved context management with agile data-as-a-service platforms.
  • Use emerging vendors that specialize in information governance in a big data environment.
  • Adopt innovative solutions for socializing and enriching your approach to information governance and MDM by focusing beyond the organization and its known customers and partners.

“It is a true honor to be named a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor,’” said Salah Kamel, CEO and founder of Semarchy. “We believe this designation validates our commitment to the Evolutionary MDM approach and mission to deliver the fastest time-to-value multi-domain data management software for all reference and master data. We see today organizations choosing Semarchy for two reasons: Firstly, because our Convergence Platform includes all the capabilities required for their data management initiative: MDM on-premises or in the cloud, data governance dashboards, data integration, address cleansing. Secondly, because we help them deliver and prove the value of their initiative in a matter of weeks through the Proof of Value exercise,” adds Kamel. “We simply help organizations knock down the financial and organizational obstacles that prevent them from benefiting from a data governance and MDM program.”

The information provided in the report is of value to all information managers, such as data stewards, storage management leaders, chief technology officers and chief data officers (CDOs) involved in Information governance and master data management initiatives.
