Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is stable.""The solution allows the complete governance process, starting from the data quality, those definitions, and it can get the data quality in the EDC.""The feature of auto-onboarding of the assets, enterprise assets via EDC is good.""The features that I have found most valuable are, first of all, that it comes as part of this whole bundle of Informatica tools. So if you've been implementing Informatica MDM across a business, you'd often find it comes with it. It's been thrown in as a sweetener. The adoption of it is often the challenge because as part of your MDM project, governance is seen as something beyond the MDM and is often restrictive. So this tool actually, for the first time, when you talk to data governance teams, gives a holistic view of what a data governance team can do with this tool."

Cons
"Right now, although they offer some templates, I would want more templates available to be imported.""I would like to see more API integration to have the capability to build a report using other third party reporting tools to streamline the operation.""The solution still is a bit manual in its functionality. We want t to be more automation-driven.""In terms of what could be improved, they need to create a rules repository. Business rules for the attributes that you have, keeping them in that central repository, and governance of them is something which Axon is lacking a bit. The Informatica Data Quality tool actually caters to that, so that's probably why they have not built that up in the Axon, but it is definitely something that can be built in to this product, as well."
