Infosphere MDM Advanced Edition

Creating holistic customer view with Infosphere MDM

IBM is an existing partner for most our technologies.

Infosphere MDM Advanced Edition

Good product backed by a solid team

The product has rich capabilities and feature set. IBM also provided tools to complement the MDM installation - InfoSphere Information Server Information Analyzer, Data Stage and Quality Stage. The services team from IBM labs was very experienced with the MDM product. They bought the righ skillset of business, technical and project management experts.

IBM InfoSphere MDM Does Not Deliver

IBM over-promised and in the end could not deliver.

Infosphere MDM Advanced Edition

Having a pre-set data model made implementation easier and faster.

Overall, the product is easy to use initially and has the ability to handle our requirements.

MDM: Deploy, deploy again, and then think about what you want

We deployed the product initially in 2013, and it has sat in production since doing nothing. We are now deploying a 'phase 2' and are hopeful that better use of the product will be taken up. The main failing has been in Business engagement and actually understanding what capabilities of the tool we wish to deploy.

Infosphere MDM Standard Edition

Complex product, don't go cheap on the integration resources

Overall the product provides the capabilities we needed, but adapting to our existing customer file was difficult and presented several performance issues.

IBM Initiate Master Data Service

Implementing MDM solution is only part of the battle in establishing quality data and information governance... even if the vendor makes it sound otherwise.

Implementation took much longer than expected... many bumps along the road.

IBM Initiate Master Data Service

IBM's MDM product continues to improve. Early versions were less capable.

IBM's product at the time was lagging behind our first choice but other relationships drove the strategic decision to choose IBM. We were one of the first implementations for their Initiate product; this has evolved overtime to be their current offering.
