Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""It has flexibility in extending the data model.""It has been leading the market with hierarchy management and all the different match concepts and algorithms. They're very robust.""MDM doesn't require a separate IDQ.""I like the number of options that are presented with Informatica, fuzzy matching, and your screen.""It has improved our organization because it has made our data more reliable. Data is the most important asset these days, and in order to trust your data, you need these tools to make sure that your data is clean and reliable.""Informatica MDM stands out as a tool that can give you the flexibility needed for doing channel-specific data quality or business validation.""Its data cleansing capabilities are very valuable. The match and merge and the audit trail functionalities are very good."

"Their documentation is excellent."

More Semarchy xDM Pros →

"Pre-sales technical support is much better than post-sales technical support.""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.""From multiple masters that are there in Informatica MDM, we can improve the financials.""The integration could be a bit better. The process is something new.""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.""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 UI is terrible and not user-friendly.""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."

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."
  • "There is no doubt that it is very expensive, but the brand value comes at a cost. Other MDM solutions in the market that haven't proven themselves like Informatica are also pretty expensive. We need to understand that MDM itself is very expensive to implement. So, Informatica is also pretty expensive. I would rate it a two out of five for being pretty expensive."
  • "It's offers value for money. They're more competitive with respect to pricing and offerings."
  • "Informatica MDM recently changed its pricing model. It's usage-based but I don't have much insight into the current pricing."
  • "Informatica MDM's price could be lower."
  • "I rate the licensing cost of Informatica MDM a five out of ten."
