"The advantage is that the matching engine is very good, so that's why customers generally prefer it. From the inbuilt data model perspective, IBM MDM is good."
"The most valuable features of Informatica MDM are its reliability, match functions, and integration capabilities. The out-of-box functionality of deduplication and built-in data models ensure faster implementation."
"Its data cleansing capabilities are very valuable. The match and merge and the audit trail functionalities are very good."
"The fuzzy matching capability is a great feature."
"MDM is very stable - it can handle millions of hits daily and still run 24/7."
"The most valuable features of Informatica MDM are it is cloud-enabled and has all the elements that are supposed to have in terms of MDM as a solution. All the features that are there. It is very well-integrated with any of the SAP and non-SAP applications. It is quite user-friendly. The user experience that you receive in Informatica MDM is quite good."
"The most valuable feature of Informatica MDM is hierarchy management. It's not something that's typically available and effective within ERPs."
"I like the number of options that are presented with Informatica, fuzzy matching, and your screen."
"Informatica MDM stands out as a tool that can give you the flexibility needed for doing channel-specific data quality or business validation."
"The tool is difficult to understand from a customer perspective and for developers."
"Informatica MDM can improve the data catalog and data marketplace."
"We currently have issues with real-time integration."
"From multiple masters that are there in Informatica MDM, we can improve the financials."
"New machine learning could be added to Informatica MDM because the solution is outdated and is not moving with the current trends. The solution is good, but it definitely needs a lot of improvement and needs to speed up as per the market."
"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."
"Informatica MDM could be improved by adding drag and drop options, business data insights, and visualization reporting."
"If I compare it with other MDM solutions in the market, one thing that can definitely be improved is automation to help with the configuration. Currently, when we are creating any staging of base object tables, all the columns have to be configured manually in the Informatica Hub Console. A lot of tables and different kinds of business columns have to be configured manually. There should be an automated process for this, especially in the Dev environment. When people are creating tables and columns from scratch, if there is a backend automated process for that, it would be really helpful. In Stibo, a similar feature is there wherein you can tag attributes to certain objects. It would be helpful if Informatica also provides a similar option. It would reduce the manual effort. It could be that such a feature is already there, but I am not aware of it."
"The UI is terrible and not user-friendly."
