SAN FRANCISCO – May 1, 2017 – StreamSets Inc., a provider of an innovative platform for managing data-in-motion, today announced it has been recognized in Gartner, Inc.’s “Cool Vendors in Data Management, 2017” report published on April 28, 2017. The four vendors named in the report were selected based on their ability to make access to data more efficient through different approaches in connecting to or collecting data.
Gartner’s annual “Cool Vendors” reports acknowledge new and innovative vendors, products and services that drive change in different areas of technology. This specific report focuses on the evolution of data management beyond the data storage discipline. “Innovation in data management has shifted from data persistence tiers to effective access and use of data,” the analysts note in the report. “Organizations now have a very good understanding of how to manage and store data using a variety of data management platforms, but still struggle to access and use this data effectively.”
StreamSets addresses the need to improve access to and effective use of data with a data operations platform that manages data movement as a continuous process. The StreamSets solution turbocharges developers to deliver data-driven applications faster, offers operators unprecedented visibility and control over dataflow performance, and gives management confidence that applications are continuously receiving complete, current and quality data.

“We’re at a critical juncture for enterprise data, where new types of data and innovative processing platforms offer tremendous opportunities — but only if you can guarantee continual, trustworthy and timely delivery of the data at the point of use,” said Girish Pancha, CEO and co-founder, StreamSets. “We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a ‘Cool Vendor’ in the evolving market for managing data in motion.”
