Q&A Highlights
Question: Reltio: Question about Master Data Management Capabilities
Answer: Riversand technology is leader in the MDM space and makes a product called MDMcenter. Gartner and Forrester put these guys in a leader and visionary quadrant topping Informatica, oracle, and sap. They have a product used by many fortune 1000s and multinational companies. I have rolled out MDM solutions for a bunch of customers using different platforms and Riversand's is the best. They have cloud based and on premise solutions. It can scale from small projects to biggest implementations of the planet, different geographies/locations, langauges and near infinite entities. Their licensing can vary based on required modules; but they offer Matching, Deduplication, Searching, Workflow, Modeling, Analytics, Integration, Domain / cross-domain, Governance tools to change / commit / rollback. The applications modeling and framework is flexible so it can handle any domain, product, retail, manufacturing, customer, vendor, finance, investment vehicles, jewelry, oil and gas, person, auto, high tech, oil gas, fast food, grocery, etc. Hands down this is best product in its class. It's top shelf. Given the choice and having used other products, I'd choice Riversand over the other competing products. If you didn't check them out yet, you definitely should.

  • "The cloud solution is subscription-based, it is paid monthly or quarterly. If the solution is on-premises, it is a one-time fee. As far as I am aware there are no additional costs."
  • "We have an enterprise license. The whole SAP landscape pricing model is based on the number of users, and the number of transactions. The price could be better, there is always room for improvement in the price."

    I cannot offer insight into the licensing policy of each vendor as they are very varied and indeed can change deal to deal. Oracle for instance might give you limited database license if you use it specifically for MDM - but will audit you and bill you for full use even if you add one custom table! What it also means is that if are going with the big ones - you can negotiate!!

    I can, however, help you with key MDM requirements as defined by Gartner.

    -Loading/synchronization/business services/integration (which is basically ETL) - but it gives you the ability to implement in different styles - centralized, registry, co-existence, consolidation
    -Information quality, semantic consistency : this is for DQ capability and survivorship
    -data modeling - strength based on metadata management, policy enforcement, dating and versioning
    -Stewardship support (such as 360 degree view, where used, decay analysis, ownership)
    -Governance (a combination of a lot of the above really)
    -multiple use cases (Operational and analytical) - here you can use ERP/PLM/CRM as operational examples and APS and DWH as analytical use cases.
    - multi domain (product, customer, supplier, account, HR, location, person) - Tricky, as many vendors including Oracle claim to be multi domain - but they do not use a single framework to manage multiple domains - that is really not multi domain because the CDO's office still needs to manage multiple frameworks and the cost of ownership is very high.
    - data quality dashboards
    - Task management (Advanced)
    - multi device support

We argue why MDM is worthless, if it is not built to make applications that consume master data such as ERP, CRM etc cannot use it instantaneously)
