Unlike other solutions, Siperian MDM Hub enables organisations to focus on a specific business initiative and deliver a rapid return on investment and then expand the solution over time and across the organisation to support other business processes and data entities. Siperian's flexible and highly scalable approach enables companies to start small within a business unit in order to deliver rapid return on investment, extend the solution over time to other business processes across the enterprise and evolve to support unified customer views containing complete operational context -- all without locking the company into a single vendor's proprietary architecture.

"Being named a leader in the Forrester Wave is a significant reflection of our flexible approach to MDM and to our customers," commented Peter Caswell, president and CEO of Siperian. "They truly have elevated the use of our platform to enterprise-levels by implementing Siperian MDM Hub not only for customer master but also for other entities such as product, location and reference."
