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.

There's no doubt that MDM is a very capable tool, however due to the complex configuration it can sometimes be difficult to get everything to function correctly. The out-of-the-box configurations gives you a lot of options, but we're finding this isn't usually friendly enough to be usable without additional customization.

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.

TIBCO MDM

  • The out-of-the-box UI and APIs are somewhat kludgy outside of for integration purposes.
  • Configuration can be somewhat difficult, even with the configurator we sometimes face difficulty getting elements to be configured properly.
  • There are many dependencies for the product to run and it sometimes is dependent on specific versions (WebLogic) of tools to operate correctly.

Informatica MDM 8.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

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!
