When evaluating data observability and data quality tools, it can often be difficult to understand what features and functions really matter. Gartner’s recent report, “Innovation Insight: Data Observability Enables Proactive Data Quality,” analyzes the space and highlights root cause analysis and recommendations as important market differentiators for data observability providers.
Gartner analyst Melody Chien wrote:
“Detection and monitoring features are mandated, while <bolderbold>root cause analysis and recommendations<bolderbold> are considered an <bolderbold>important market differentiator<bolderbold> among vendors. Monitoring tells you what’s going on; recommendation tells you how to fix the issue and therefore, at the end of day, system downtime or data errors can be prevented.”
The report validates Anomalo’s product and goal of providing best-in-class data quality monitoring through root cause analysis and recommendations. <bolderbold>Using machine learning<bolderbold>, Anomalo makes it easy to identify, root cause, and fix your data quality issues, ultimately giving you greater confidence in your data.
Gartner’s report defines data observability tools as offering holistic monitoring of your data systems to provide visibility and insights into your data pipelines and infrastructure. While this definition is probably familiar, what stands out in this report is that detection and monitoring features are no longer differentiators—they’re table stakes.
According to Gartner, today’s data observability tools stand out in the market if they perform root cause analysis and provide recommended solutions. It’s these features that allow a data observability tool to truly satisfy the customer’s end goal: resolving and preventing data quality issues.
