The annual Report by Gartner, the leading research and advisory company, identifies “Cool Vendors” in key technology areas, highlighting innovative vendors, and their products and services.

Simplity has been recognized in the 2017 Cool Vendors in Information Innovation and Governance report by Andrew White, et al., at Gartner, Inc. This accolade follows closely after Simplity’s listing of the Accurity Suite in the April 2017 Gartner Market Guide for Information Stewardship Applications [1].

The independent report by Gartner evaluates pioneering vendors, and their products and services in the information technology market, focusing on “a new approach to acquiring and curating data, while at the same time leveraging crowdsourcing to short-circuit the discovery effort and discern trusted data.” In addition, Gartner’s Report examines this new opportunity ‘’emerging to help firms build out their logical data warehouse (LDW) to access all their silos ‘as if the silos do not exist’.” The information provided in the Report is of significant value to all data and analytics leaders who use their data to drive innovation and govern their information assets effectively.

In response to this achievement, Simplity CEO Petr Mahdalíček announced that “Simplity is proud to be recognized as a ‘cool vendor’ in the Gartner Cool Vendors Report. We believe in our business-oriented approach at Simplity, and we will continue to focus on the specific requirements of our business users.” He reinforces that Simplity intends to progress with its innovations and further enhance its development initiatives. ‘’We will ‘keep our coolness’ and continue the challenge bending the boundaries of this expanding and complex industry.”
