Informatica Positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions

Within Leaders Quadrant, Informatica Placed Farthest to the Right on Completeness of Vision and Highest on Ability to Execute Axes

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 2, 2017Informatica, the enterprise cloud data management leader, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Informatica as a Leader in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions once again, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The complete report, including the Magic Quadrant graphic, is available complimentary at https://www.informatica.com/magic-quadrant-mdm.html.

The current Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions, authored by Bill O’Kane, Alan Dayley, Michael Patrick Moran and Simon James Walker and published on Oct. 30, 2017, identifies Informatica once again as being one of only two Leaders in the Leaders quadrant. Within this quadrant, Informatica is placed farthest to the right on the completeness of vision axis and highest on the ability to execute axis.

According to the Gartner report, “Businesses of all sizes and in many industries continue to struggle to maintain a consistent, shareable and accurate single version of master data across their organizations — a requirement that is growing in importance. With the increasing focus on the digitalization of enterprises, management of their key master data is also becoming more important. The ability to achieve and maintain a single, semantically consistent version of customer master data is crucial for customer-centric organizations. More importantly, trusted data (which starts with trusted master data) sits at the center of a digital business platform, so demand for effective MDM will continue to increase in the next few years.”

The report notes that the overall MDM market continues to evolve in complex ways. Examples of more dynamic factors include: “The growing number of companies looking to expand their MDM programs, perhaps by adding content or unstructured data (such as graphics and documents), additional application-specific data, social data, or other (master and nonmaster) data domains. In this way, MDM is often seen as the starting point for a broader EIM program within an organization.”
