Andrew Brust, GigaOm analyst and author of the report stated, “Because of the rise in attention surrounding global data privacy regulations in recent years, data governance was seen as a mechanism to reduce risk and exposure. However, recently there has been a repositioning of data governance as a value-add, based on the principle that better governed data drives even higher business value.”
The GigaOm Radar Report identifies key differentiating features and capabilities for solutions in the sector. It further identifies evaluation metrics–top-line characteristics that help define the impact that a solution may have on an organization. While some competing vendors were also considered ‘fast movers’ for strategy and pace of innovation, Privacera leads in actual innovation, which is a testament to the company’s ongoing momentum and increasing demand for its unified data access platform.
