Cloudingo

Cloudingo is great at mass merging account and contact records based off a specific criteria instead of having to do it manually within the record in SF. It also is easy to analyze a record while in a mass merge to see if you need to edit some values. However, having other standard objects would be very beneficial and even having it for custom objects could be helpful.

Informatica MDM

Informatica MDM features have extreme power over large data extraction and its data integration functionality are effective and powerful data analytics tools and the overall data quality management using Informatica MDM is effective and profitable. The development project easy management and Applications performance monitoring with Informatica MDM is excellent.

Pros

Cloudingo

  • Cloudingo displays a single dashboard view of the quality of data you have in Salesforce. You no longer have to guess how much of your CRM is "clean" or "dirty".
  • Cloudingo allows you to test functionality in Salesforce Sandbox prior to conducting changes in Salesforce Production. I highly recommend thoroughly testing functionality prior to making changes in your live CRM.
  • Cloudingo allows you to mass merge and converts records automatically and manually either individually or in groups. This saves a lot of manual time in trying to keep your CRM's data clean.

Informatica MDM

  • Fuzzy matching in built features are excellent.
  • Data workflow creation process is smooth.
  • Creating child parent relation using UI is excellent.

Cons

Cloudingo

  • I would love to have a multi-user mode. I realize this very difficult though given I as an admin can see records my peers cannot.
James Winslow | TrustRadius Reviewer

Informatica MDM

  • As far as I can see it exclusively uses the concept of "point to point" connectivity for fetching data. What this means is that Informatica MDM must have "knowledge" of all other systems, and keeps a direct connection to these systems. This is bad practice in environments that would benefit more from a microservice architecture. In those cases, it's especially bad, because not only does this break the SOA architecture, but it also "promotes" the idea of "point to point" connections among developers. The "point to point" mentality is the single most important danger to any SOA environment.
  • It's very hard to use! The learning curve is really steep. Also, it's really boring by design: having to open a large application, learning all of its intricate details, maintaining all connections and scheduled data load moments means you need developers that are seriously devoted to this application. This means those developers are kept from working in the field they know best and caused them to become developers in the first place, which is Oracle/Database developing. This makes it hard to find employees willing to perform this function.

We spend enough money on Salesforce that the cost of Cloudingo when compared with its benefits is extremely small. We've been able to see measurable KPIs move as a result of the work we've done with Cloudingo

Very usable. I have not spent enough time to fully grasp the capabilities. The interface is fairly intuitive, and I think with more time, I would grasp it very well.

I have had to reach out to Cloudingo support several times. They almost always respond that same day. Often times they will call me directly to fix the problem or walk me through best practices. They even reach out after the fact to make sure that everything worked okay. They are also kind and personable.

I'm not sure since I never used support. My colleagues never had any issues with it, therefore my rating would be an 8 with a certain range of uncertainty.

For us it was just a matter of committing the 10 minutes to install it from the AppExchange. It automatically builds out a dashboard based on standard filters and you get a lot of insight from them. We then copied some of the standard ones and pulled two from a filter library that rounded out what we needed. I wish I had done this months before given how little of my time it actually took.

Alternatives Considered

Cloudingo

We considered DemandTools CRMFusion. As a small company with a limited budget, it was considerably more expensive than Cloudingo. It also was an installable, on-premise piece of software which is a big drawback. While the reviews of CRMFusion on TrustRadius were very positive, it appeared to have a steeper learning curve as well. So the combination of cloud-based, easier-to-use, and lower price led us to select Cloudingo over CRMFusion.

Informatica MDM

Informatica Cloud MDM was not available at the time of implementation. It has a direct connection with Salesforce, but as far as I can determine it is a solution that only addresses Salesforce and does not enable the sourcing of data from multiple external systems. Flat file support is lacking

Return on Investment

Cloudingo

  • Neglected and not used due to destructive automation
  • Fear of cleaning up data
  • Not wanting a human to do proper cleansing
