The Information Difference also observes, "In the current market we see a significant trend towards a second generation of MDM projects. Many companies that started one or two specific initiatives some years ago in particular domains or business unit are now pushing for a more joined up approach whereby the scope of the master data initiative is expanded."
"Informatica's continued innovation and investment in MDM is reflected in our improved position this year on The Information Difference's technology axis, making us the only vendor at the forefront in both technology and market strength," said Rob Karel, vice president of product strategy, Informatica Quality Solutions, Informatica.

"Mastering data across today's global organizations is a complex and challenging undertaking, but one with off-the-charts business rewards," said Andy Hayler, president and chief executive officer, The Information Difference. "Informatica's large base of pleased customers, combined with its technology and market leadership, make the company a formidable competitor in the MDM lists.
