It has been discussed a few times on this blog if Gartner should make a single (multi-domain) Master Data Management quadrant latest in the post MDM for Product Data Quadrant: No challengers. A half visionary.
Well, if Gartner will not Forrester will, as Forrester has just released their MDM wave focusing on multi-platform platforms for MDM. Yep, there is nothing like analyst firms insisting in using their wording as multi-entity, multi-domain or multi-platform MDM within their special visualization as quadrant, landscape, wave and other bulls…. eye stuff to blur things a bit.
If you are a Forrester client or otherwise like to pay money to Forrester, you can get the report here. If you would like to feed one of your eMail addresses into the Informatica marketing machine, you can get the report here.
There are only four and half multi-platform MDM vendors in the universe according to Forrester. Three and a half of them are no surprise. Maybe Talend is. I guess one or two more of the Trois acteurs français dans le marché du MDM would like to be there as well.
