Farouk DawoodSenior Manager Data Architecture at a financial services firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The features that are most valuable are the governance, the end-profiling and the ETL which allows you to see the metadata repositories."
"There are not really many areas of the product that need improvement because the product stays up-to-date with data management needs."
"The most important features are the mastering of the data and the UI intuitiveness."
"The staging and hierarchical features are the most valuable."
"We also want better cloud integration, so we could do things in the cloud if we needed to. This would be a good feature to add in a future release."
"The product is really only created for large organizations."
"They need more feature flexibility, as it is not fully developed."
"Its look and feel needs improvement. It has a lousy look and feel. Informatica PIM is designed specifically for the retail industry. They need to make sure that it is also applicable to all the other industries and verticals."
"It may be costly for small organizations but adds value for large organizations with demanding workflows."
"We switched to Informatica PIM because it was cheaper than the Oracle solution. It is cheaper initially, but they will bundle it later. This is what happens in the industry."
