Datactics wins award for data quality tech and explainable AI

  • Northern Ireland tech firm Datactics has been awarded the Platinum Mutable Award in Bloor Research's 2021 Report, for the Belfast-based company's Self-Service Data Quality (SSDQ).

    The award recognises software vendors that enable their clients to deal with data management processes in an intelligent and business-focused way.

    Daniel Howard, Senior Analyst (Information Management and DevOps) with Bloor Research said:“Datactics is a self-service data quality platform that puts significant stock in, and devotes substantial functionality to, the idea of explainable AI and machine learning. As fervent proponents of explainability in AI, we certainly approve.” 

    Explaining the typical client use case for its technology and services Datactics CEO (Stuart Harvey) said: "SSDQ allows client subject matter experts to measure, identify and fix data for themselves rather than being reliant on already over-stretched IT teams.

    "As a data quality engine, Datactics co-exists with data governance tools relating to lineage and meta-data. We support our clients in automating data improvement processes that de-duplicate information and leverage the benefits of human-in-the-loop AI to reduce manual effort and improve accuracy."
