Infosphere MDM Advanced Edition

Complex Tool - Difficult to Implement

Did a limited implementation about 4 years ago and relied entirely on 3rd part for support. Purchased expanded license a year ago but have yet to implement due to the complexity.

MDM is hard, get buy in from your business first. Align people and process first

MDM is hard to implement. IBM Initiate Registry style MDM was even harder to implement, not from the techynology perspective only but mostly from process and people perspective. IBM consultant with previous experience from similar customer background help a lot to boost business leadership's confidence and get a buy in from people and process perspective

IBM InfoSphere MDM Does Not Deliver

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

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.

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.
