Get a Complimentary Copy of The Forrester Wave™: Master Data Management, Q1 2019:” The 12 Providers That Matter Most And How They Stack Up

“In our 29-criterion evaluation of master data management (MDM) providers, we identified the 12 most significant ones — BackOffice Associates, EnterWorks, IBM, Informatica, Magnitude Software, Pitney Bowes, Reltio, Riversand, SAP, Semarchy, Stibo Systems, and TIBCO Software — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report shows how each provider measures up and helps enterprise architecture (EA) professionals select the right one for their needs.”

Michele Goetz is the Vice President & Principal Analyst at Forrester serving enterprise architects, chief data officers, and business analysts trying to navigate the complexities of data while running an insight-driven business. Her research covers artificial intelligence technologies and consultancies, semantic technology, data management strategy, data governance, and data integration.

“Vendors in the Forrester MDM Wave needed to meet enterprise scale requirements demanded by more diverse ecosystems within traditional environments as well as big data and the cloud. So, as you embark on the MDM journey and begin to evaluate vendors and their tools, don’t overlook the innovations being introduced in favor of a workhorse. To do so means that your MDM effort will be out of date and misaligned with business scenarios quickly after launch.”
