One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Informatica MDM vs Informatica PIM. One user says about Informatica MDM, "The flexibility to interact with many different sources and targets, like Oracle, MySQL, flat files, Informix, and SAP thru PowerExchange, then applying different transformations that you can configure in an intuitive way, gives both business and IT teams the opportunity to track the data lineage. It also provides value to the data workflows you create and integrates to feed the MDM solution together with data quality processes."Another user says about Informatica PIM, "It is a new product with business user-friendly web user interface, dashboards, graphs, flexible task-based workflow, ability to use library out-of-box data quality rules or define custom DQ business rules, channel-specific exports, fully customizable BPM workflow engine for task management and notifications, enterprise scalable performance, flexible data model, and hierarchy management."In your opinion, which is better and why?

reviewer587889A lot of things are important in MDM: DQ capabilities, match & merge, workflows, user friendliness, integration and connectivity, the data model, .... The most important is to start with a very good understanding of your company's needs and processes before you start selecting a tool.
