The long-awaited Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions finally published earlier this week. After leading or collaborating on many iterations of this report over the past eight years and participating in the market this year from the vendor side after leaving Gartner last June, I was eager to see the results from my esteemed former colleagues. I urge every reader of this document to not simply peruse the diagram or even just the vendor summaries, but to read the entire document. In addition, be careful to remember that the time period covered here is largely calendar year 2018, with some data points reaching to the end of the first quarter of 2019.
I very much enjoyed diving into the content (maybe a bit more than writing it in the past!), and the majority of what I found is not only accurate, but resonates highly with the market vision and strategy here at Profisee (see my blog post from last summer on why I joined Profisee here: profisee.com/blog/mdm-for-the-masses/).
At the market level, there are several spot-on observations, and I have to admit, one or two items that made me raise an eyebrow. Some of the highlights:
While we at Profisee have maintained our position as a Challenger this year, and as always are grateful for the huge effort (and believe me, I know) that Gartner analysts expend in the production of this report, we are not content to rest on our laurels. I’m excited to report that we have just ended the most successful fourth quarter, and the most successful year, in our history. We look forward to continuing this trend into 2020 and beyond.
See you out there!
