Global Technology Leader Solving Most Complex Enterprise Data Challenges Cited for Providing Full Data Governance Around MDM Capabilities
McLean, VA — March 26, 2019 — BackOffice Associates, a global leader in solutions that solve enterprises’ most complex data transformation challenges, announced today it was cited by Forrester Research in its independent report, “The Forrester Wave™: Master Data Management, Q1 2019.” For the first time, BackOffice Associates was included among the “12 providers that matter most”, according to Forrester Research, in the Master Data Management (MDM) evaluation. BackOffice Associates’ top scores were in the Market Strategy, Product Strategy and Revenue criteria.
“After also receiving a Strong Performer designation in ‘The Forrester Wave™: Data Governance Stewardship and Discovery Providers, Q2 2017’, we believe being named in this latest Wave for MDM providers demonstrates BackOffice Associates’ proven capabilities in helping organizations navigate every step of their data journey,” said Kevin Campbell, CEO of BackOffice Associates. “As the speed of doing business and data volume continues to increase exponentially, we are committed to helping our customers establish trusted data sources and automated data governance practices that yield critical business outcomes.”
According to the report, “BackOffice Associates provides full data governance around MDM capabilities.” The report also states, “BackOffice is often used to complement SAP MDG because it is accelerating ERP consolidations/migrations but its MDM capabilities are broader than this usual use case.”
Regarding the overall MDM market, Forrester reports, “Where first-generation MDM was hard to implement, with lengthy projects to put change management processes in place to govern data, the second generation prioritizes agility to help lines of business improve their marketing and customer experience. MDM initiatives serve to find the right balance between protecting customers’ private data while delivering the best value through personalization. MDM implementations prioritize iterative and agile methodologies, which deliver faster time-to- value.”
