Monte Carlo Recognized as the #1 Data Observability Platform by G2 for Fourth Consecutive Quarter

Peer-to-peer product review site G2 is powered by the ratings and feedback of real customers, based on their experiences using products every day. So we’re incredibly proud to share that Monte Carlo was just named G2’s #1 Data Observability Platform for the fourth consecutive quarter. 

That means our customers find significant value in what we do — helping them operationalize data reliability workflows and eliminate data downtime at scale. We work hard to prioritize time-to-value, customer success, and integrations across the data stack, and it’s so gratifying to know our efforts translate to meaningful business outcomes for our customers. 

In the Spring 2024 awards, we won both #1 in the entire Data Observability category and #1 in the Database Monitoring category, along with 14 additional awards — including Easiest to Do Business With in Database Monitoring, Enterprise and EMEA Momentum Leader in Database Monitoring & Data Ops Platforms. 

Our rave reviews keep coming because we continually invest in providing great user experiences and helping teams improve and protect their data quality. Within the last few months alone, that’s meant launching new features like: 

  • Support for Pinecone vector databases — part of our forward-looking approach to end-to-end data observability for GenAI data pipelines
  • Our interactive Data Explorer for profiling data and investigating data quality issues
  • Enriched lineage across Airflow orchestration and Kafka streaming
  • Expanded support for even more databases (including Azure SQL, Oracle DB, SAP HANA, and Teradata) and table types (like Delta, Iceberg, Delta Live, and Dynamic tables)

We’ve also continued to provide our customers with ongoing support and strategic guidance around best practices for data observability and incident management. This leads to earlier visibility into data incidents and higher levels of data trust throughout the organization. 

“Before we onboarded Monte Carlo, the data operations team’s primary focus was to just monitor pipeline runs that failed,” said Ashley Van Name, Senior Manager of Data Engineering, JetBlue. “But now, they’ve got this extra level of insight where they are able to say ‘something is wrong with this table’ rather than just ‘something is wrong with this pipeline.’ Monte Carlo helps us see these issues, which we did not previously have a way to easily visualize.” 

Tanguy d’Hérouville, lead data engineer at Aircall, credits Monte Carlo with helping resolve issues around data trust. “Our stakeholders learning about an issue with data from us, rather than finding out by themselves, helps increase their data trust. We can show that even though incidents do happen, we are more aware and in control of the situation than we once were.”

And as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our customers’ entire data stack, we haven’t let our foot off the gas when it comes to partnerships. We’ve just announced our new partnership with the Microsoft ecosystem, and are now operating as a premier Snowflake Horizon Partner to better support our hundreds of mutual customers. We’re also maintaining availability within the Databricks Partner Portal and AWS Partner Marketplace.

In addition to these exciting G2 awards, we’ve been recognized as a Leader in the GigaOm Radar for Data Observability, and named as Exemplary in the Ventana Research Buyers Guide: Data Observability.
