The report noted that MDM programs potentially encompass the management of customer, product, asset, person or party, supplier and financial masters. As the name suggests, MDM of customer data focuses on the management of the domain relating to customer data, whereas MDM of product data technology focuses on the domain relating to product data.
Siperian MDM Hub(TM) is a true multi-entity MDM platform that supports multiple data domains, including customer, product, employee, location and any other data type, all on the same platform.
With customer data as the platform's core strength, Siperian customers have started their MDM journey with customer entity and then expand the usage to other entities over time for greater value and a higher return on investment. While all of Siperian customers have adopted Siperian MDM Hub to manage their customer-related efforts, nearly half leverage the same platform to expand to other entities such as product. Siperian's flexible, integrated, model-driven MDM platform enables its system integration partners to develop cross-industry, multi-entity MDM solutions delivering fast time to value.
As a best-in-class provider and the leading multi-domain MDM solution, Siperian enables our clients to handle both operational and analytical MDM by supporting any type of data including customer, product, location and reference data, commented Peter Caswell, president and CEO of Siperian.
