MDM / PIM / DQM Tool Selection Consultancy

The Disruptive MDM / PIM /DQM list has an interactive service to help you jumpstart in your tool selection for a solution for Master Data Management (MDM), Product Information Management (PIM) and/or Data Quality Management (DQM) as described in the post The Free Bespoke MDM / PIM / DQM Solution Ranking Service.

Select Your Solution

The result of this interactive online service is a selection of the 7 best fit solutions for your MDM / PIM / DQM implementation and possibly also a few solutions that could complement your choice as a best-of-breed supplement for special features as for example data matching and product data syndication.

With the 7 best fit solutions my suggested succeeding process could be one of the below 3 options:

Long Path:

Long pathYour organization, possibly assisted by a consultancy firm (in my case Astrocytia), makes a deeper evaluation of the longlist with the 7 best solutions typically by issuing a written Request for Proposal (RFP) to all or the most promising solutions in the selection. The response will give you a detailed understanding of the capabilities offered and a price indication including license price and model, required consultancy costs and internal resources needed.

Based on this you will make a shortlist of the typically 3 solutions with the best fit capability and total cost of ownership (TCO) ratio. You will invite the providers for a demo and engage in answering specific concerns. From there your organization can award the best fit solution provider with a contract and you can commence the implementation possibly assisted by an implementation partner (in my case Astrocytia).

Short Path:

Short pathYour organization, possibly assisted by a consultancy firm (in my case Astrocytia), can issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to the providers of the shortlisted solutions. Based on the response, including indications for total cost of ownership (TCO), you will invite perhaps two providers for a thorough demo and engage in answering specific concerns. From there your organization can award the best fit solution provider with a contract and you can commence the implementation possibly assisted by an implementation partner (in my case Astrocytia).

One Step to PoC:

One Step to PoCYour organization will invite the best fit solution provider for a Proof of Concept (PoC) possibly with the assistance of a consultancy firm (in my case Astrocytia). If the result is successful and the total cost of ownership (TCO) match your business case, you can commence the implementation based on a contract with the solution provider and possibly also with an implementation partner (in my case Astrocytia).
