Generic Ranking of Vendors versus an Individual Selection Service

Many analysts market reports in the Master Data Management (MDM), Product Information Management (PIM) and Data Quality Management (DQM) space has a generic ranking of the vendors. Some of these reports were back in December last year mentioned in the post Major Generic MDM / PIM / DQM Solution Rankings. (Since then a new Gartner MDM Magic Quadrant has been published).

The trouble with generic ranking is that one size does not fit all. Therefore organizations on the look for a solution need to examine the market anyway and spend a lot of time and/or money with consultants in doing that.

On this list there is no generic ranking. Instead there is a service where you can provide your organization’s context, scope and requirements and within 2 to 48 hours get your solution list.

The selection model includes these elements:

  • Your context in terms of geographical reach and industry sector.
  • Your scope in terms of domains to be covered and organizational scale stretching from specific departments over enterprise wide to business ecosystem wide (multi-enterprise).
  • Your specific requirements.
  • Vendor capabilities.
  • A model that combines those facts into a rectangle where you can choose to:
    • Go ahead with a Proof of Concept with the best fit vendor
    • Make an RFP with the best fit vendors in a shortlist
    • Examine a longlist of best fit vendors and other alternatives like combining more than one solution.
