Pros
"Informatica MDM stands out as a tool that can give you the flexibility needed for doing channel-specific data quality or business validation.""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.""We've used the solution for quite some time, so in our organization, the product is pretty mature.""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.""The data quality component is very good.""I like the number of options that are presented with Informatica, fuzzy matching, and your screen.""MDM doesn't require a separate IDQ.""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."

"The product is extremely flexible.""The most valuable features of TIBCO EBX are that is a complete tool and everything can be done inside, including data governance. We are able to model everything according to the needs of the company. If the company needs five people to agree to a change in data, they can do it with TIBCO EBX. They can model it with any particular rules. Additionally, there is dynamic data modeling, simple workflows using the GUI that comes from the server.""The data modeling is very good.""The data quality is very good."

Cons
"From multiple masters that are there in Informatica MDM, we can improve the financials.""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.""They have too many diversified products. If you don't know Informatica, it's very confusing and feels very idiotic.""The advertising makes promises about data analytics that it does not keep.""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.""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's issue is the licensing. Right now, there are a lot of new gen MDMs that are offering a lot in a single licensing model."

"The initial setup can be a bit complex.""The product does not scale well horizontally. We find the scalability to be quite inferior to other options.""The documentation needs improvement.""Everything is updated through forms, and working with UI web forms. It's more record-based processing. It is not mass-based processing. This is one of the things that are not good for TIBCO EBX. Another problem is we cannot join tables and prepare a view where the tables are joined. Someone can code it but it is not a feature of the solution without code. You have to take data from a table, combine it with data from another table and then present it. This could be done better."

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."

  • "The price of TIBCO EBX is too high. The solution can only be used in a project that has good sponsorship that can afford it."
