Soda, a leader in data quality monitoring and observability, has been named one of the 2021 Gartner® Cool Vendors™ in Data Management .
Soda is on a mission to bring everyone closer to the data. Soda prescriptively solves the problem of discovering the issues that matter by giving everyone a single, integrated, and centralized platform to track and score the health of data. This empowers data teams to define what good data looks like, and resolve the root cause before there is a downstream impact. Maarten Masschelein, CEO, Soda, said, “We are thrilled to be named a 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor, which we consider as recognition and validation for our approach to solving the number one data management challenge faced by modern organisations: ensuring high quality, trusted data is available to enable confident decision making, serve and delight customers, and improve processes."
“Data teams need the right solutions to help improve trust, foster a spirit of collaboration, and deliver business value. Our experience across data management, data engineering, and business process management, inspired us to build Soda and remove the fear of not knowing, and the pain of finding out too late that a data issue has had a downstream impact. Driven by our community and a shared belief that data quality is a team sport, we want everyone who has a stake in the data to understand it, trust it, and stay on top of it. Soda combines predictive capabilities with a simple, but powerful rules-based system that allows data teams to create coverage very quickly, and achieve the end-to-end observability they need to collaboratively identify and resolve problems.”
The Cool Vendor report identifies the up and coming vendors in data management solutions. The Soda platform and developer tools enable organisations to proactively manage data quality issues by providing both business and technical users with a single platform to discover, analyse, prioritize, and collaboratively resolve data quality issues. This approach brings everyone closer to the data and means that management and governance processes for data quality can quickly and easily form around data assets.
Soda’s recognition as a Cool Vendor comes just four months after the company raised €11.5M Series A Funding. With support from a rapidly growing community, Soda is looking to solve common data problems with common solutions. It does this through a combination of the recently released Soda Data Observability and Collaboration Platform, and a suite of Open Source Software (OSS) developer tools. Soda Cloud is available as a free trial version, enabling users to start monitoring data in minutes, while the Soda Developer Tools kit is built to fit naturally into the data engineer’s workflow and is available on Github.
