Evaluating master data management tools: New research report available at Fast Market Research

Recently published research from Ovum, "Evaluating master data management tools", is now available at Fast Market Research

 
PRLog - Jun. 13, 2010 - After a period of vendor- (and analyst-) fueled hype, the master data management (MDM) software market has finally settled down. We now have a much clearer idea of what this technology is intended to do and, perhaps more importantly, what it is not. Our Best Practices Insight report is not intended to provide a description of MDM. Rather, it focuses on the key technical criteria that organizations should look for when evaluating an MDM tool. The aim is to provide a framework for making informed decisions. It offers insight into not only the choice of technology provider, but also the main architectural and functional differences between MDM products on the market. Matching these technical requirements to business requirements will help organizations realize the benefits of what remains a fiendishly complicated issue in enterprise data integration.
