Informatica Positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions

As One of Only Two Leaders, Informatica is Positioned Farthest Right on “Completeness of Vision” Axis

Redwood City, Calif.,– January 24, 2017 – Informatica®, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Informatica as a leader in its inaugural Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions report. Informatica has been positioned as a leader based on ability to execute and completeness of vision.

The complete report, published January 19, 2017, including the quadrant graphic, is available at: https://www.informatica.com/magic-quadrant-mdm.html.

To present a more holistic picture of the market for MDM solutions, the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions consolidates and replaces two prior Gartner Magic Quadrant reports: Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Customer Data Solutions and Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Product Data Solutions. According to Gartner, “This new Magic Quadrant addresses the current focus of the MDM market on all-encompassing solutions as more clients recognize their digital business platform should be built on trusted master data.”

The authors of the new Gartner report state, “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.”

Additionally, the report notes, “Gartner estimates that overall software revenue from the MDM solution market came to $1.786 billion in 2015, an increase of 4.4% from 2014 (this revenue increased by 14.3% in constant currency). Over the same period, we estimate that the enterprise application software market grew by 3.4% in real U.S. dollars.” The report continues to say, “It is clear that a slow but steady shift in the MDM market is underway. Gartner believes that this will continue and that it is likely to gain momentum as awareness increases that the benefits of MDM are most transformational at the level of business process.”
