“Informatica customer data management solutions have helped top brands improve their customer experiences through gathering, validating and mastering customer data across diverse sources, and managing it to ensure it stays clean, consistent and connected,” said Amit Walia, executive vice president and chief products officer, Informatica. “By infusing multidomain MDM with graph technology and intuitive relationship discovery capabilities, the synergy that results from using MDM – Customer 360 in concert with MDM – Relate 360 is a game-changer for businesses competing on customer experience, particularly as customer channels and data, not to mention expectations, continue to grow in diversity and complexity.”
Greater than the Sum of their Parts
Built on the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform, MDM – Customer 360 and MDM – Relate 360 work synergistically to ensure that all an enterprise’s customer-related data can be trusted and used to provide insights into customer needs and behaviors, predict the best actions and most relevant up-sell and cross-sell offers in real time, drive engagement, and improve operations across sales, marketing, customer service and other customer-facing functions.
Built for the Business
Informatica MDM – Customer 360 and MDM – Relate 360 are the two most recent apps added to our suite of master data fueled applications. Informatica MDM – Customer 360 and MDM – Relate 360 MDM applications are designed with a business-friendly, configurable user interface, and make data accessible through existing apps or through pre-configured, role-based interactive dashboards designed for customer engagement and relationship discovery. Configurable prebuilt workflows and data model make it easy to ensure data is clean, complete and fit for purpose and conforms with internal and industry policies and regulations.
“Businesses of all sizes and in many industries continue to struggle to maintain a consistent, shareable and accurate single version of master data across their organizations — a requirement that is growing in importance. With the increasing focus on the digitalization of enterprises, management of their key master data is also becoming more important. The ability to achieve and maintain a single, semantically consistent version of customer master data is crucial for customer centric organizations. More importantly, trusted data (which starts with trusted master data) sits at the center of a digital business platform, so demand for effective MDM will continue to increase in the next few years.”- Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management Solutions, published January 19, 2017
