Leaders address all verticals, geographies, data domains and use cases. The capabilities provided in their products include recognition of multidomain data quality issues, alternative deployment options such as SaaS, self-service support for roles such as the information steward, data preparation functionality for business users, use of machine learning and algorithms, data quality support for IoT, support for a trust-based governance model, and delivery of enterprise-level data quality implementations. Leaders have an established market presence, significant size and a multinational presence (either directly or through a parent company)."

"Trillium's position as a Leader comes in a year during which we announced: support for the industry's leading CRM platforms, a SaaS solution delivered via the cloud, and data quality solutions certified for the leading Big Data platforms. Additionally, we've made a time-to-value commitment: industry-leading data quality delivered within 30 days," said Leonard Dubois, chief marketing officer for Trillium.
