As reported in the previous post on this blog, there were some Movements in the Gartner MDM Magic Quadrant 2018.
But there was also a good deal of steadiness. Informatica still holds pole position in the race for going towards the top-right corner. Orchestra EBX, now disguised as Tibco EBX, is trailing them in the leaders quadrant. Old challengers as IBM, SAP and Stibo is watching them among the newcomers in the challengers quadrant and still as the only visionary – according to Gartner – we have Riversand.
In the niche players quadrant, we also still have Ataccama and Enterworks.
But there is still lot of free space in the top-right corner. There is still room for disruption. Gartner mentions some traditional forces still on the move being the good old 360 degree view on party data (customer, patient and the bit US biased provider) as well as Product Information Management (PIM) maybe in new wrappings as PCM or PXM.
Gartner still promotes this stuff as Application Data Management (ADM).
Else Gartner focuses on these tracks to disruption:
- Subscription pricing – both for on-promise and cloud
- The need for professional services – still a lot of money goes into that pit
- Cloud based deployment – going up from 19% last year to 24 % this year among Gartner’s respondents
- Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
