Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The scalability of the solution is excellent.""It gives you accountability to centralize your data and have it available to different applications.""This is the best tool on the market for master data management.""We've used the solution for quite some time, so in our organization, the product is pretty mature.""It has flexibility in extending the data model.""The data quality component is very good."

More Informatica MDM Pros »

"One good feature is that SAS MDM comes bundled with the entire stack so we are in a position to place it with the client. So when a client wants an analytics tool plus BI, and they want to bring in other elements, that is when we look to MDM, because it is a single vendor."

Cons
"I think they should work really hard on UI.""The 100% availability or the configuration for clusters is not very well designed.""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."

"The initial setup was slightly complex. We did face a couple of issues such as the SAML integration not being very smooth. And linking communication with the metadata server was a bit of a challenge. Eventually, we were able to configure it properly."
