More IBM InfoSphere MDM Cons »

"The integration could be a bit better. The process is something new.""The advertising makes promises about data analytics that it does not keep.""Pre-sales technical support is much better than post-sales technical support.""They have too many diversified products. If you don't know Informatica, it's very confusing and feels very idiotic.""The solution doesn't directly connect to any of the analytical tools.""Their support should be improved. We have had some trouble with their support from time to time. Its scalability should also be improved. I would also like to have a bit more modern and friendly UI for the end-users.
