by Keith Kohl, VP Product Management, Trillium Software
Last week, Gartner Group released its Data Quality Magic Quadrant (MQ) and Trillium Software is once again in the leader quadrant (the coveted upper right)! In fact, ever since Gartner has been publishing the Data Quality MQ, Trillium has been in the upper right leader quadrant, 11 straight years.
The MQ recognizes the strength and stability of the Trillium Software System (TSS). Our product simply works and is reliable for our customers. We have hundreds of customers and thousands of implementations all over the world.
We continue to add new products and enhance our existing core product, TSS. The latest is the TSS 15.3 release with the new Discovery Center. We accelerated this release based on feedback from our customers. The Discovery Center is a new browser-based, cloud-ready interface for Trillium Discovery. It’s very visual and guides non-technical users through a discovery or profiling process.
As Gartner recognizes, we are seeing more customers move to cloud deployments. Trillium Cloud, our secure, proven environment provides operational flexibility for any Trillium product. Because we offer all of our products either on-premises or in the cloud, we often don’t have the “deployment” discussion with customers and prospective customers until we are in final negotiations.
When talking with our customers, I’m often amazed how much mind share we have within large organizations and not just in the IT department. I have been in meetings with customers with a large contingent of people from their Marketing department where Trillium is being used to create and ensure a single view of customer or product.
Last year in the MQ, we were “cautioned” by a long time to value/getting into production (I’m paraphrasing). We improved on the long time to value, especially with launching Trillium Cloud where we are up and running in less than 30 days, and in some cases in a matter of days. This year, some of our customers were concerned about ease of installation, etc. We’re listening and will correct this.
I am very proud of Trillium Software and I congratulate all of the hard working Trillium employees on continuing to lead the data quality market. Get the full report here.
