WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. – August 11, 2014

DBTA Readers Choice AwardSyncsort, a global leader in Big Data software, announced that Database Trends and Applications (DBTA) Magazine readers voted Syncsort DMX as the best overall Data Integration solution in the inaugural DBTA Readers’ Choice Awards.

According to DBTA, they launched the awards because, “the opportunities and obstacles presented by developments such as Big Data, cloud, mobility and the challenges of managing and extracting value from data have never been greater. At the same time, the array of technology options for storing, protecting, integrating, enhancing and analyzing data has exploded. To help add perspective and acknowledge the products and services that have been deemed to provide unique value to customers, DBTA created this new competition.”

DBTA reported that they received votes from over 22,000 readers across 31 categories.

In the DBTA Reader’s Choice Winner’s circle, Syncsort CEO Lonne Jaffe stated that, “As Big Data goes mainstream, businesses with well-planned data architectures require frameworks for a new reality where Big Data technologies integrate and extend the capabilities of existing architectures. Syncsort excels in this approach, leveraging the knowledge that IT teams have accumulated over the years, while maximizing the benefits of the latest technologies to deliver new insights and significantly lower costs.”

“Data integration is critical to many organizational initiatives such as business intelligence, sales and marketing, customer service, R&D, and engineering, to name a few. Whether seeking to achieve a comprehensive view of data across disparate database management systems, mainframes, Hadoop or the cloud, the goal for many companies is the same: to help reduce costs and drive better decision making to fuel business success,” said Tom Hogan, Group Publisher of Database Trends and Applications Magazine. “The Reader’s Choice awards are meant to shine a spotlight on the best information management solutions in the marketplace, with the winners selected by the experts whose opinions count above all others – our readers.”

In addition to the Reader’s Choice Award, Syncsort was also chosen for the second year in a row by the editorial team at DBTA as part of the prestigious DBTA 100 2014, which recognizes the 100 companies that matter most in data.
