Overall Satisfaction with Teradata Master Data Management

Teradata Master Data Management was implemented to help the company's business users have standards when requesting Metadata. The implementation was just across the finance department, however, it should have been scaled across the organization. Business users were able to get away from the spreadsheet and other manual processes. Locked out would include last minute requests that came in after the deadline.
  • Provides swim lanes that the business has to follow.
  • Provides basic validations.
  • Provides automation where the company was lacking.
  • It could use a facelift of the UI
  • Seems clunky and not user-friendly
  • The landscape that it needs for installation seems to be heavy
  • Overall, you will save time from bad requests. I would think that the average admin would spend 10 hours a month on this task.
  • It would save the business user about 5 hours a week in validation.
  • It would save the business and admin user about 5 hours a week each in frustration. This is priceless.
I have used almost every metadata product out there. Teradata about the middle of the road as far as I am concerned. It's not great, it's not horrible. Again, as in my previous comments, if you have a full Teradata environment, then go for the Teradata Master Data Management. If you have an Oracle environment, then there are better ways or processes to handle metadata.
This is suited if you already have Teradata DB installed. It provides a lot of great options for shuttling metadata around. If you are not using Teradata at all, then it's not worth looking at. It would be like fitting a square peg in a round hole with a star bit.
