As reported in the post Data Quality Tools are Vital for Digital Transformation also Gartner recently published a market report with vendor positions. The two reports are, in terms on evaluating vendors, like Roman and Arabic miles. Same same but different and may bring you to a different place depending on which one you choose to use.
Vendors evaluated by Information Difference but not Gartner are veteran solution providers Melissa and Datactics. On the other side Gartner has evaluated for example Talend, Information Builders and Ataccama. Gartner has a more spread out evaluation than Information Difference, where most vendors are equal.
