Broadcom Test Data Manager Other Solutions Considered

Apart from CA TDM, I've used IBM InfoSphere Optim, which was number-one TDM tool for quite some time, and I've used Delphix. Now, a couple of more tools have come into the market, like K2View. At one point in time, about two years back, CA TDM was only tool that could do synthetic data. CA TDM and Optim have different ways of working. CA TDM vs Optim has the major advantage of synthetic data creation. No tool was able to do that. Only in the last two years has IBM Optim come up with synthetic data capabilities, but what they are doing is creating a superset. If you have sample data, it will create a superset of that data. That is not the case with CA, as well as other tools. There are multiple sites that also create synthetic data, but the major challenge comes into the play once you need to put that data back into the database. View full review »

IBM Optim is one competitor as is Informatica. IBM has come up with the synthetic data feature in the last years although I don't recall the name of the tool they acquired. Informatica vs IBM Optim does not provide synthetic data yet. Normal TDM features, like masking, are provided by both IBM and Informatica. People usually go for Informatica because it is easier for them to adopt the tool. Informatica is a very popular tool on the market for basic TDM-related activities and it's not as costly as TDM.
