“The stand-alone metadata management platform will be refocused from augmented data catalogs to a metadata ‘anywhere’ orchestration platform.”
“We are incredibly honored to be named in the inaugural Market Guide for Active Metadata Management by Gartner. The industry is undergoing a monumental shift from traditional, old school approaches of metadata management to a new era: collaboration-focused, intelligent, and open by default,” said Prukalpa Sankar, co-founder of Atlan.
The Market Guide report, published 27 July 2021 (ID G00736613), states that “The increased demand for orchestrating existing and new systems has rendered traditional metadata practices insufficient. Organizations are demanding “active metadata” to assure augmented data management capabilities.” It goes on to say, “The stand-alone metadata management platform will be refocused from augmented data catalogs to a metadata ‘anywhere’ orchestration platform.”

Active metadata management is an emerging set of capabilities that enable continuous access and processing of metadata. It departs from traditional “passive” metadata management practices to enter a new era — one where metadata itself is becoming a form of big data, and utilizing metadata effectively is becoming crucial for enterprises hoping to drive augmented data management and modern data practices such as data fabrics and DataOps.
“We founded Atlan because we believed there was a better way for data teams to work together. Our approach was incredibly different when we got started. We built Atlan on a fully open API architecture and took a collaboration-focused approach to data management. I believe Gartner’s launch of this inaugural Market Guide for Active Metadata Management is an incredible validation of our vision and direction. We can’t be more excited to be pioneering the active metadata industry,” said Varun Banka, co-founder of Atlan.
