CHAIRMAN’S SECOND DAY SESSION: PRODUCT EVALUATION CRITERIA & FIELD REPORTS FOR TOP 10 MDM SOLUTIONS

Moderator: Aaron Zornes, Chief Research Officer, THE MDM INSTITUTE

Evaluating MDM solutions is comparable to purchasing your first home – too many new variables, lack of transparency in the pricing, and high pressure sales tactics. During 2010-11, most large enterprises will focus on MDM by deploying a 3rd generation database-centric hub to deliver a panoramic customer /citizen/supplier view across multiple channels, business lines, and heterogeneous IT environments.  Other “type A” organizations will undertake phase two of their MDM programs to either go enterprise wide with a single master entity (customer, product, or supplier) or endeavor to go “multi-entity” by adding a second master data domain to the scope.  This session will focus on the "why" and "how" of MDM technical evaluations for both scenarios by providing insight into:

  • Understanding the pros & cons of the dominant architectural models & evaluation criteria – e.g., active Data Governance, identity resolution, hierarchy management, scalability, etc.
  • Assessing the vendor landscape – e.g., registry, data hub, EAI/EII, portals, SOA-based web services, data service provider, etc.
  • Applying a rigorous methodology to MDM product evaluations & implementations for both mega vendor solutions (IBM MDM Server, Informatica MDM, Microsoft Master Data Services, Oracle MDM, SAP MDM) & pure play (D&B/Purisma, DataFlux, IBI MD Center, Stibo, Tibco)
