BEST PRACTICES: TOP 15 MDM SOLUTIONS FIELD REPORTS - PART 2

Aaron Zornes, Chief Research Officer, THE MDM INSTITUTE

Evaluating MDM and data governance solutions is comparable to purchasing your first home – too many new variables, lack of transparency in the pricing and high pressure sales tactics. On top of this flux, IT executives have to contend with the marketing dogma of ongoing “stack wars” among the mega vendors and the dogmatic “we are the world” viewpoints of MDM, RDM and (even) Business Process Management (BPM) vendors.  To cope during 2013-14, many large enterprises will increasingly mandate a unified approach to both data and process architecture/design/management tools.  This session will focus on the "why" and "how" of MDM and data governance technical evaluations by providing insight into:

  • Understanding the pros and cons of the dominant architectural models and evaluation criteria – e.g., pro-active data governance, identity resolution, hierarchy management, scalability, big data and Cloud integration capabilities, etc.
  • Assessing the vendor landscape – e.g., registry, data hub, ultra-hub, EAI/EII, portals, SOA-based web services, data service provider, system-centric BPM, human-centric BPM, etc.
  • Applying a rigorous methodology to product evaluations for both mega vendor solutions (IBM MDM, Informatica MDM, Microsoft MDS, Oracle MDM, SAP MDM/MDG/MDS) and  more pure play (Collibra, IBI MD Center, Kalido, Orchestra, SAS/DataFlux, Software AG, Stibo, Talend, Teradata, TIBCO)
