Even With 20 Entities MDM Can be Hard

This week I attended the Master Data Management Summit Europe 2018 and Data Governance Conference Europe 2018 in London.

Among the recurring sessions year by year on this conference and the sister conferences around the world will be Aaron Zornes presenting the top MDM Vendors as he (that is the MDM Institute) sees it and the top System Integrators as well.

Managing an ongoing list of such entities can be hard and doing it in PowerPoint does not make the task easier as visualized in two different shots captured via Twitter as seen below around the Top 19 to 22 European MDM / DG System Integrators:

20 entities

Bigger picture available here.

Now, the variations between these two versions of the truth and the real world are (at least):

  • Red circles: Is number 17 (in alphabetical order) Deloitte – in Denmark – who bought Platon 5 years ago or is it KPMG.
  • Blue arrow and circles: Is SAP Professional Services in there or not – and if they are, there must be 21 Top 20 players with two number 11: Edifixio and Entity Group
  • Green arrow: Number 1 (in alphabetical order) Affecto has been bought by number 8 CGI during this year.

PS: Recently I started a disruptive list of MDM vendors maintained by the vendors themselves. Perhaps the analysts can be helped by a similar list for System Integrators?
