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 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

The vendor was helpful in not only the implementation but also in the upgrades in providing their expertise. They have shown bias for action in providing in the critical situations as highly critical business processes depend on this product.

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 over-promised and in the end could not deliver.

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

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.

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

We have a close relationship with IBM and this was strengthened with this implementation.
