"The Provisioning tool is something that is really handy for everyone. It is my pick as the best feature."
"It has been leading the market with hierarchy management and all the different match concepts and algorithms. They're very robust."
"MDM is very stable - it can handle millions of hits daily and still run 24/7."
"The data quality component is very good."
"Its data cleansing capabilities are very valuable. The match and merge and the audit trail functionalities are very good."
"MDM doesn't require a separate IDQ."
"I like the number of options that are presented with Informatica, fuzzy matching, and your screen."
"We've used the solution for quite some time, so in our organization, the product is pretty mature."
"It's a stable solution. I have no complaints."
"Has a good user interface and the ability to update large sets of products quickly."
"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."
"They have too many diversified products. If you don't know Informatica, it's very confusing and feels very idiotic."
"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."
"From multiple masters that are there in Informatica MDM, we can improve the financials."
"Pre-sales technical support is much better than post-sales technical support."
"The advertising makes promises about data analytics that it does not keep."
"The on-prem solution is harder to learn than the cloud-based versions."
"Informatica MDM could improve the interdependency with integration. The solution sometimes becomes a bit difficult to change considering a lot of interdependency with the integration. There can be some improvement in the workflows and they can introduce more artificial intelligence."
"The ability to create bespoke workflows could be improved."
"The solution does not have a good match and search capability."
