Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like the number of options that are presented with Informatica, fuzzy matching, and your screen.""MDM doesn't require a separate IDQ.""New tools are coming out that will enable you to achieve 90 percent of use cases with the out-of-the-box configuration, but I would like to keep Informatica tight here. Otherwise, you need a Java user edit course and other things to do multiple things that you cannot configure out of the box. They have to go through those use cases to do something if those can also be configured rather than coded.""In the latest version, I like the outlay of the business roles creation. I like seeing that visualization as you're building it, as opposed to going through metatables or XML mappings. We liked that piece, and it makes it more intuitive for the business.""Its data cleansing capabilities are very valuable. The match and merge and the audit trail functionalities are very good.""It has flexibility in extending the data model.""The data quality component is very good.""We've used the solution for quite some time, so in our organization, the product is pretty mature."

"A good solution for large enterprises.""The most valuable thing is what it does: data management.""Useful for building master data.""SAP Master Data Governance integrates well.""We've found the solution to be quite flexible.""Some of the features that I have found to be beneficial are the search and uploads functions.""The solution is great at standardizing all of our records."

Cons
"The advertising makes promises about data analytics that it does not keep.""They have too many diversified products. If you don't know Informatica, it's very confusing and feels very idiotic.""The biggest pain point for us is the documentation. Typically, you have to go through knowledge forums and knowledge groups to find out about the syntax issues for interfacing with new products. Typically, you've got to deal with someone who has been through the pain before. Their documents are not really up to date with current innovations happening in the industry. As big as they are, you can't really expect it, but that's our pain point.""Their support should be improved. We have had some trouble with their support from time to time. Its scalability should also be improved. I would also like to have a bit more modern and friendly UI for the end-users. There should definitely be a simplified way to configure and set it up.""The solution doesn't directly connect to any of the analytical tools.""We promote our code changes from a lower to a higher environment, which is highly complex when working with a multi-domain MDM like Informatica. This is the biggest obstacle for Informatica MDM, and I think they should change it because that's very time consuming.""Pre-sales technical support is much better than post-sales technical support.""The integration could be a bit better. The process is something new."

More Informatica MDM Cons →

"The UI could improve by being more neat and clean. Sometimes users find it difficult to use it.""Overall, they just a little bit more flexibility in terms of assigning roles or adding new roles. We have a longer approval process, so we need to break it down into more roles than what is typically available and we need to hard-code it.""The user interface is not user-friendly.""The solution lacks some flexibility.""The price can be improved.""The implementation could be easier."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's pretty high for us. It's more on the higher side, like low to middle high."
  • "It is expensive. That's probably the biggest drawback. The business has heartache paying the license, but that's mainly because they don't realize what value it brings. The key thing about the MDM solution is that it is in the backend, and no one sees what it is actually doing. You don't know it is a problem until it is not there."
  • "Informatica MDM's pricetag should come down. They have to cut some costs."

  • "The cost of the product is not ideal."
  • "The cloud solution is subscription-based, it is paid monthly or quarterly. If the solution is on-premises, it is a one-time fee. As far as I am aware there are no additional costs."
  • "We have an enterprise license. The whole SAP landscape pricing model is based on the number of users, and the number of transactions. The price could be better, there is always room for improvement in the price."
