Informatica Riding High about the MDM Forrester Wave™

Forrester MDM Wave I have the pleasure of boasting that Informatica was positioned as a leader on the latest Forrester Wave™ Report covering MDM Solutions. We are so pleased in fact, that we want to share the report with you – for free.

The report used a combination of four data sources to assess the strengths and weaknesses of selected solutions:

  • Hands-on lab evaluations
  • Vendor surveys
  • Product demos
  • Customer reference calls

The vendors were chosen based on product fit, customer success and Forrester client demand. The report evaluated vendors on 65 criteria which were grouped in three high-level categories – current offering, strategy and market presence.

Informatica was noted for our strength in mastering and integrating data. The report noted that we “define the master domain across the data ecosystem.” In their interviews with customers, Forrester reported, “Customers purchasing Informatica MDM are often looking for an out-of-the-box solution to solve particularly complex business challenges impacted by master data.” They noted that Informatica’s specialization “helps customers link master data management to business outcomes.”

As a service provider, we were particularly pleased with the results of Forrester’s calls with our clients. After all, the proof of a truly superior product is in its day-to-day, real-world operation. The reports states, “Informatica continues to compete and increasingly closes sales in head-to-head reviews. Clients state its strengths are configurability, scalability, performance, and understanding of the business impact.”

But please, read it for yourself! We want to share this good news by offering a free copy of the Forrester Wave™ Report, Q1 2014. We have built a great team here at Informatica and we proudly believe that the study results support  our approach and performance.
