Gartner recently released an updated version of the Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions report and positioned Informatica & Orchestra Networks as leaders in this MDM market segment. 

 

 

Our key takeaways:

  • Specialized MDM vendors still lead the market and offer biggest added value. Vendors, delivering niche data solutions directly linked to i.e. specific business applications, seem to lack the focus and as result don’t meet the function & features of the leaders.
  • The multi-domain data trend continues to happen. This is the first edition of the Gartner Magic Quadrant on Master Data Management where Gartner consolidates the different data domains. This translates also a trend that we see it in the market where customers need an MDM solution that covers all their domains and not only customers, products, assets, etc. Reality is that customers need an MDM solution that they can use to address their complete data agenda.
  • Informatica still makes a difference compared to other vendors due to its end-to-end data capabilities which are also key for a successful MDM implementation. Data Quality, Data Governance and Data Integration are key components of any MDM platform and are available as integrated functionality in the Informatica MDM solution.
