Forrester and the Mural OpenSource MDM Community


We just launched Mural, our Open Source MDM (Master Data Management) project but Forrester's latest Wave Report already says: "Sun Microsystems debuted in the top slot among Strong Performers with solid data deduplication, architecture, and open-source options".

An MDM system allows a single, consolidated, presentation from multiple data sources. Mural brings the experience from JavaCAPS, and adds OpenSource and the benefits of bundling GlassFish Server and MySQL to the mix. I need to write some spotlights on Mural, stay tuned.
