Master data management is arguably a discipline rather than a toolset, but the importance of big data – and emergence of regulations like GDPR – have put an increasing emphasis on data governance; and consequently, vendors have moved to fill the gap. Companies like SAP and Oracle, whose products centre on enterprise databases, are well placed to offer their customers tools that can round up master data from across those applications and maintain it in a central repository. They are joined by third-party solutions from the likes of Informatica, Tibco and Talend which have a background in middleware and integration.

This report covers the following areas:

  • The drivers towards and use cases for MDM tools, based on the experiences of hundreds of UK IT leaders.
  • Analysis of market-leading and -trailing vendors, looking at their history, funding sources, solutions, pricing and perception.
  • An examination of the potential for disruption by new players like Profisee, Dell Boomi and Reltio.
