Good workflow models and pull-down lists with very good data modeling

What is our primary use case?

We're using the solution for reference data, master data management. To basically implement data governance around the reference data. One of the big initiatives is to capture all the information that the branch operations team is looking to capture. Or operational information or reference data. We're a credit union. We're like a bank. It's all about managing the data of the branches, and the ATMs, and some of the business partners that are at the branches.

Pros and Cons

  • "The data modeling is very good."
  • "The documentation needs improvement."

What other advice do I have?

We aren't using the latest version of the solution. We're a few minor versions behind. There are some questions coming up, of what our direction is going organizationally. There are some new directions that may include moving to the cloud from on-premises. That could have an impact. There's also an appetite for high availability and scalability and all of that as we are a very large organization. On the other hand, some of the competition that is using the same tool, are some of the really big banks and such. There are other organizations, other financial institutions that use it. Their…

Highly customizable and good Data Modelling feature, stable workflows but performance is below par

What is our primary use case?

We have multiple sets of data coming in from various upstream systems, SAP being one of the main and most dominant systems. We have non-SAP as well, such as Microsoft systems, Oracle Database, and some other legacy databases. We need an MDM tool where we can merge the data and get the main records out of it after merging and matching everything. The tool has merge and match features and allows us to get the golden record out of it as a single source of truth and then use it as a master of our data, as a Master Data Management tool. We also stored the Data Governance Rules using the information… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The product is extremely flexible."
  • "The product does not scale well horizontally. We find the scalability to be quite inferior to other options."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers and end-users. Whether I would advise another company to choose this solution or not depends a bit on the use case they are going to develop. I would say that, if a company has a basic use case, a basic means of getting data from a few sources like Oracle, SQL Server, Teradata etc., then maybe it is sufficient. However, if you are having an enterprise-level situation for SAP or Oracle Apps , it might scale up that well. Performance is also an issue as it does not optimize the underlying clusters to a great extent as compared of its competitors. One good thing is that, with…

The support is fast and good, and the program is user-friendly

What is our primary use case?

I use this program in my work in the pharmaceutical industry. We develop projects around a product master in the company.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is easy and straightforward."
  • "The design should be easier and more visual."

What other advice do I have?

This is a rather technical solution and you must know that it takes some preparation before you can start working on it. In the future I would like to have a clean proof of the design of the data modem. It should be easy and visual. I will rate the solution an eight out of ten because I think there are some things to improve and that could be better.
