"Mastering Customer Data through Informatica MDM"

What do you like best?

It helps in mastering data from any sources and also without any manual intervention you can get the best version of records. Using this tool helps in configuring the data sources, match and merge rules and validations rules with such and easy and effective way that the developer just needs to do that using configuration and rest match and merge is taken care by mdm. To get the best records and single version of truth which can be further used by many downstream applications and hence can trust this mdm source as the reliable record.

What do you dislike?

This tool does not have the capabilities to apply match and merge rules on fact data. Any kind of sales data can never be stored in MDM database. A record has to be a dimension data to get stored into this tool. And, also can participate only then if it is a dimension. Matching like exact and fuzzy can not be applied on any sales data due to which it becomes difficult to store sales data . Hence, you can only go with party data model and not any common star, snow flake or any other schema model.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Using this tool helps in configuring the data sources, match and merge rules and validations rules with such and easy and effective way that the developer just needs to do that using configuration and rest match and merge is taken care by mdm.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MDM has made life easy by helping in providing the best version of truth by auto matching and merging of records. Records in this gets matched and merged and hence only best and single unique records are left. The redundancy is nearly finished in this MDM. Records are the single source of truth and downstream application can also maintain non redundancy.

"Best MDM tool I have worked with"

What do you like best?

IDQ tool is Informatica's one of the good data quality tool offered so far. MDM 10 makes smoother interaction with the tool.

What do you dislike?

In IDD the manual conditioning for report output needs advanced queries to be set up there. It makes business users not so comfortable. A further modification in IDD tool to allow more options to provide an easy output.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a multi-domain MDM implementation in your organization, Please choose Informatica MDM as it is heavy in its offering in services wise.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working on Customer, Location Master Data delivery. While talking about location master data, Informatica's Address Doctor tool gives exact and fuzzy matching results to the appropriate expectation. Despite of the address sources like ISO, Melissa data etc. , MDM tool provides a technology agnostic output in delivering the right output to the Address.

What Master Data Management (MDM) solution do you use?

"Perfect tool for MDM"

What do you like best?

I have been an Informatica developer for over 10 years now and we have recently got Informatica MDM which has completely changed our data quality experience. It easy very easy to debug and find the cause for the issue effectively. This a very easy to use ETL tool and helpful for maintaining the CDC.

What do you dislike?

Though it is very easy to understand for people using any different ETL too, but it might be tricky for some one new as there is not enough material to help them get through various databases. There is a lot of scope for improvement and speed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Informatica MDM is now our main data hub helping us to keep up with the history data and CDC.

Its hard to use this product unless you know it well. Or may be its already eased out, and its just my inability to use it efficiently.

The primary business problem i solve is the Root Cause Analysis when it comes to any Data issue I face. Being an Analyst i need to drill down to the ultimate depth to know whats causing a break in data, and Informatica is like a boon.

"No "Bells and Whistles""

What do you like best?

I cannot say I have seen anything very impressive.

What do you dislike?

Strictly a data hub with little or no additional functionality.

System is slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to evaluate other products!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have only just gone live with one of our smaller countries. It wil be a staggered global implementation. Too early to see any real benefits. I'm sure there will be some simply because we have gone to MDM but not necessarily because of Informatica.

I am currently the Global Customer Master Data Manager for a multi-national company with 8000+ employees, I was not employed here when the product selection was made. I wish I had been!
