Today it was announced that Syncsort acquires Pitney Bowes Software Solutions. In the announcement it is said that “The acquisition, Syncsort’s largest ever, brings to the company best-in-class location intelligence, data enrichment, customer information management and customer engagement solutions that are highly complementary to its existing portfolio”.
Syncsort has its data quality tool from the Trillium Software acquisition.
Both Pitney Bowes and Syncsort were well positioned in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools as reported in the post Data Quality Tools are Vital for Digital Transformation.
Pitney Bowes has also been recognized as a MDM platform vendor by Forrester as mentioned in the post Several Sources of Truth about MDM / PIM Solutions.
Will be exciting to see how long Syncsort will move into the data management space. Will Syncsort stay with name and address data quality and customer data or will they, as many other vendors on the market, move towards a multidomain MDM and more comprehensive data management offering?
