The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Customer Data Solutions is out. You may have a free look at it for example going through Talend’s press release on the matter here.
It’s not a crowded picture. There are few solutions in there and several come from the same brand. And there are no challengers and no visionaries.
Gartner expect that challengers may arrive later for example as those who are building up multi-domain MDM solutions right now. Should be interesting to see what comes first: Challengers in the customer MDM quadrant or a multi-domain MDM quadrant. Other analysts have a single view of MDM vendors.
From where will we see the visionaries then? Gartner says current niche players may spread into the visionary field. If we will see new vendors emerging into the visionary field it may in my eyes be based on the Growing Variety in Big Master Data which includes widening the term customer data into taking care of all kinds of party master data.
