Informatica Positioned as a Visionary

In its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Product Data Solutions report, Gartner has positioned Informatica as a visionary.

According to Gartner, the MDM of product data solutions are “software" products that;

  • Support the global identification, linking and synchronization of product information across heterogeneous data sources through semantic reconciliation of master data
  • Create and manage a central, persisted system of record or index of record for master data
  • Enable delivery of a single product view to all stakeholders, in support of various business benefits
  • Support ongoing master data stewardship and governance requirements through workflow-based monitoring and corrective action techniques

Additionally Gartner states, “the use of MDM of product data solutions ranges across different scenarios”1 in support of:

  • Customer-facing business processes commonly found in e-commerce across different channels or “omnichannels”
  • Supplier-facing procurement and/or product development business processes
  • Enterprise- or ERP-centric view, starting with information architecture spanning all business processes and ending with consolidation of data from a corporate, global perspective
