Session Description

The toughest and most trying aspect of any new major IT investment decision is wading through the vendors and their references.  Save time and money by meeting with seasoned veterans of all the leading MDM, CDI, PIM and Data Governance solutions – at one event and in two hours!

We’ve brought together four “panels with the pros” comprised of  2-3 customers, 1-2 consultants, and a product marketing representative or two from each of the major MDM solutions providers.  In 120 minutes, you will cycle through and have an opportunity to question (or listen to others’ questions) from the below leading MDM solutions providers:

These are not scripted or staged “infomercials”… rather they are opportunities to meet with, and discuss implementation experiences and best practices from those who have begun their MDM journeys. 

Whether you are evaluating one or more of these major MDM solutions, or are an existing customer of that solution, you will gain insight into how other major enterprises are managing their user of that product family for their MDM program(s).
