Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to Gartner, “Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have strong results and strong delivery capabilities, and will continue to have them. They typically possess a large, satisfied customer base (relative to the size of the market) and enjoy high visibility in the market. Their size and financial strength enable them to remain viable in a challenging economy. Leaders have mature offerings and track records of successful deployments, even in the most challenging environments, across all geographies and in many industries.”
The Gartner report describes Master Data Management of product data solutions as a category of software products that:
- As the name suggests, MDM of product data focuses on management of the domain relating to products, though the solutions can be used to govern other “thing”-type data, whereas MDM of customer data technology focuses on the domain relating to “party” data.
- Support the global identification, linking and synchronization of product information across heterogeneous data sources through semantic reconciliation of master data
- Create and manage a central, database-based system of record or index of record for master data
- Enable the delivery of a single product view (for all stakeholders) in support of various business benefits
- Support ongoing master data stewardship and governance requirements through workflow- based monitoring and corrective action techniques
