Informatica MDM

If your environment is clean and well organized, but at the same time has many application domains with their own data sources, Informatica MDM can be a really good factor in maintaining "single points of truth" for all this data. However, the more application domains you have, the less "clean" your environment becomes. If your application domain landscape consists of multiple technologies (C#, Oracle, JAVA, web-based, windows services, console apps, third-party tools, etc), your environment becomes a real nightmare to maintain unless you implement a service-oriented approach. And this is where Informatica MDM fails completely since it promotes a "point to point" scenario. At least this is my experience. It could be that Informatica MDM supports a service-oriented approach, but I have not seen this. I could be that the developers in my organization who have expert Informatica MDM knowledge are just more "point to point" oriented. But even if that is the case, it's a valid argument against Informatica MDM, since it's already hard enough to find developers who are dedicated to this product, it becomes impossible to find SOA oriented developers.

SAP Master Data Governance

Large organizations with multiple business units operating across regions and geographies will benefit greatly from SAP Master Data Governance. Companies like ours where acquisitions are a norm, we face severe challenges with IT Data consolidation due to too much duplicate data. Our procurement, finance and sales data go a huge facelift with SAP [Master Data Governance].

SAP Master Data Governance

  • SAP MDG is a powerful platform that enables implementation of advance master data automation such as field auto derivation.
  • Like SAP ECC, MDG performs very well throughout all sites around the world.
  • SAP MDG comes equipped with the standard ECC or S/4Hana data models. This greatly simplifies rollout of the governance platform.

Cons

Informatica MDM

  • Mapping within the tool can be difficult. But that is slated for upgrade with the next version.
  • Many detailed screens for the developer interface. This makes it hard to find options sometimes.
  • Address validation sometimes leads to incorrect results. This is my biggest issue with the product.

Customers with SAP systems in their landscape can take a lot of advantages from having SAP Master Data Governance in their landscape. It has a very straightforward SAP-based UI, which makes it easier for the users to be trained. To create master data is likely to create a ticket in a service support system.

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.

I miss an educational forum, where people can discuss ideas and questions about the platform. Although we know that many things are customized for each company, it has many features and shortcuts that are global, and either you know, or you don't know. There is no content on YouTube or Google or [another] easy way to get these tips.

Alternatives Considered

Informatica MDM

Less expensive then the competitors, modules are self-sustained and able to function directly. It involves less coding, and a lot of things can be done in house!

SAP Master Data Governance

After using the original legacy Master Data management solution, the next logical step is the SAP Master Data Governance solution. We use the out of the box standard solution with the best practices philosophy.

Return on Investment

Informatica MDM

  • Informatica MDM allowed for a faster standup of our Salesforce environment.
  • Informatica MDM provided a means to keep our multiple source systems synchronized.
  • Informatica MDM can be pricey but is definitely a leader in the space.

SAP Master Data Governance

  • MDG is definitely an investment that takes a few years to recuperate. (If you are looking at pure, direct financial benefits.)
  • However, if you look at all the productivity gains in the business due to not having to stop the business constantly because of data issues, the payback period would be substantially shorter.
  • In particular, we were able to reduce master data maintenance staffing levels while increasing quality and decreasing workload for business requesters and approvers.
  • Not having to worry about data integrity issues has shortened the time to realize benefits for several of our major process change related projects and it has also decreased the risk of these projects running into significant delays (often at the last minute) due to master data being misjudged during the process resdesign.
