This year the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Product Data Solutions is published very shortly after the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Customer Data Solutions. Now 1 day in between. I hope this is a sign of that the two MDM quadrants eventually will melt into a (Multi-Domain) MDM Quadrant as touched yesterday in my post about the Customer MDM Quadrant.
The product MDM quadrant states: “Product master data is one of the most important information assets an organization has; second-only, perhaps, to customer master data”. In my humble opinion, I think you can refine that statement. It depends on the number of customers (or other party roles) versus the number of products you deal with. Highest number names the most important domain to start with in your organization.
As usual Informatica seems to be the fastest MDM vendor measured on providing a free copy of the Gartner quadrants. Find the 2015 Product MDM Quadrant here from Informatica.
