The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions is probably the most referenced vendor ranking service in the MDM space. You can see which vendors that are included in the quadrant – and their yearly revenue as estimated by Gartner – in the post MDM Vendor Revenues According to Gartner.
The entrance ticket for vendors in the quadrant is a yearly MDM related software (license and maintenance) revenue of minimum 15 Million USD.
This list (The Disruptive MDM/PIM List) does not require any minimum revenue for vendors to register their solution. Some of the already listed solutions are also included in the Gartner MDM Magic Quadrant and some are not (yet).
For organizations on the look for an MDM and/or PIM solution this means that there is a choice of considering both larger and established disruptive solutions and considering newer and specialized solutions for a longlist and a shortlist within a tool selection activity.
There are plenty of market reports about Master Data Management (MDM) and Product Information Management (PIM) solutions – some more trustworthy than others as examined in the post MDM Alternative Facts.
A common way of presenting the positioning of the solution vendors is doing it in a rectangle (called wave, quadrant, grid, landscape …) where being close to the top right is the best.
This list does not try to make a generic ranking of the vendors in a rectangle or any other shape. Relevant vendors can register and present their solution as they like. We can help making your longlist, shortlist and final selection. Either way, you can get in contact here.
Product experience Management (PxM or PXM) is a trending term in the Master Data Management (MDM) and Product Information Management (PIM) world.
As reported in the post Product Something Management the acronym PxM is one of several three letter acronyms starting with P and ending with M in play in this space.
Some of the topics handled in a PxM solution that can be seen as a development of traditional PIM solution are:
Analysis of product content including encompassing other data domains
Emphasis on product content that is search engine optimized (SEO)
Context aware presentation of product content
Personalization of product content
Exploiting Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the above-mentioned scenarios
Solution vendors on the market are positioning themselves in relation to PxM as some vendors are going in the direction of being a PxM vendor while other vendors embrace the span from MDM over PIM to PxM. This urges solution buyers on the market to focus on implementing PxM from a best of breed vendor in this realm or to look for one-stop-shopping.
You can meet both kind of solution vendors on this list.
