The MDM space is filled by a number of well-known players. In addition to Informatica, you’ll also find IBM, Oracle, SAP, and a host of other vendors. But who’s the leader of this space?
The Information Difference is an analyst firm that specializes in MDM, and this firm has been watching the MDM space for years. Recently, The Information Difference compared 12 different MDM vendors, ranked them using 200 criteria, and published their findings in a report of the MDM landscape for Q2, 2013. The firm compared the vendors’ MDM offerings across 6 categories: data governance, business rules, data quality, data storage, data provision, and data movement.
To arrive at the final rankings, The Information Difference assigned each vendor a technology score and a market strength score. The technology score was derived from levels of customer satisfaction (as determined from a survey of key customers), 3rd party analysts’ impressions of the technology, the maturity of the technology, and the breadth of the MDM solution’s functionality. The market strength score was derived from MDM revenue and financial strength, as well as the size of the vendor’s partner ecosystem, customer base, and geographic coverage.
Want to know who turned out on top? I won’t keep you in suspense any longer, it’s Informatica. This Thursday at 8am Pacific, The Information Difference and Informatica will present a webinar to discuss the findings from The Information Difference’s “MDM Landscape Q2 2013” report. You’ll learn why Informatica was selected as the leading vendor, and who the players are. You’ll also learn the size of the current MDM market, how fast it’s growing, and the master data that’s most commonly implemented today. Information Difference will present a chart comparing each vendor’s technology breadth and depth, market strength, and customer base, and discuss its ratings in detail across the 6 categories used in the ranking.
