Heidelberg, July 15th, 2015 – Software and consulting company Datavard GmbH has been positioned on Gartner’s June 15, 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Structured Data and Archiving and Application Retirement”. The annual report is compiled by Gartner based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. Analysts recognize the vision and execution of Datavard, and positioned Datavard the furthest for completeness of vision in the Niche Players Quadrant.

Based on Gartner’s estimates, the size of the structured data archiving and application retirement market is $263 million — with additional related product revenue at $27 million — and growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10 percent. According to Gartner analysts, by 2016, 75 percent of structured data archiving applications will incorporate support for big data analytics.

“We are very pleased to have been recognized by Gartner, and particularly believe this confirms the power of our vision,“ said Gregor Stoeckler, CEO of Datavard. “We feel this placement reaffirms our pursuit of extending our solutions and reacting to the needs of our clients. We are among few Data Management specialists providing link to Hadoop since 2010. Our goal is getting customers in top shape for the future while simultaneously preserving their valuable resources.”

Datavard was positioned for its Data Management Suite OutBoard™. This application separates analytical and transactional data, as well as documents according to operational relevance and stores it automatically in up to 12 various database technologies with up to 95 percent compression.
