The Information Difference MDM Landscape Q2 2017 is out.
In the survey behind the vendor with the happiest customers was Agility Multichannel, followed closely by EnterWorks, then Stibo Systems, then Orchestra Networks and Informatica.
If you look at the positioning below these are by the way the ones with highest score on the technology axis (vertical) – but are not rated in the same order on the market strength axis (horizontal).
The pack of vendors is organized by Information Difference only somewhat in line with Gartner as seen in the post Who will become Future Leaders in the Gartner Multidomain MDM Magic Quadrant?
Riversand and Tibco are not positioned by Information Difference, nor is Magnitude Software, which is the new wrap of Kalido, that had Andy Hayler of Information Difference as a founder.
Gartner did not position Agility Multichannel, Viamedici, Profisee, Terradata, Veeva and Talend in their quadrant.
All in all we see a market with a lot of unsettled business also considering exciting newer players as Reltio, Semarchy and Uniserv.
Magnitude’s President and CEO killed Kalido over a few beers in 2015. Idiots. It was an awesome product but they chose to survive on exorbitant maintenance and support revenues rather than invest. It is the Magnitude way and fundamentally why I and 15 other people left by either their or our choice. Happy to discuss all of the above with customers, prospects or advisors…
That is a sad story Peter. Some of the other players invest a lot still and there is a lot to do if a vendor wants to stay in the there in the long run.
Any thoughts as to why neither Riversand or TIBCO are positioned in this report?
My guess is lack of reference customers available to Information Difference.
