The latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management (MDM) Solutions was published last month.
There was not much movement in the vendors positioning compared to last year. Only, as told in the post The Latest MDM Magic Quadrant, Informatica went further top-right with their suite of 360 solutions and Semarchy went up and above SAP MDG as the top challenger.
Semarchy was also among the ones with the highest revenue growth, so their Intelligent Data Hub approach seems to work pretty well both technically and commercially.
The growth race had Reltio as the winner as reported in the post Growth on the MDM Market.
Some years ago Gartner dropped mentioning other MDM vendors than the ones meeting the quadrant criteria. This year a small section of those has returned as Honorable Mentions. These are Magnitude Software, who recently has returned to branding their MDM offering as Kalido, Software AG, PiLog. Unidata, Boomi – the integration-oriented solution from Dell, and the data quality specialist Syncsort – who has acquired Pitney Bowes’ software and data business.
The market overview section was smaller and less informative this year. In here Gartner confirms that digitalization remains the most significant driver for growth in the MDM market and that privacy regulations also continue to drive exploration of MDM initiatives.
You can, against a minimal of personal info, download the report from Semarchy here.
Thanks Henrik for providing some food for thought. The Reltio POV on this can be found here: https://www.reltio.com/blogs/think-outside-of-the-gartner-magic-quadrant-for-master-data-management-solutions-to-deliver-connected-customer-experiences/
Thanks for commenting and sharing the link, Kate. I agree that the the MDM market is changing and it can be a little bit difficult to sense that when you read the Gartner MQ report.
