Broadcom Test Data Manager Room for Improvement

There are multiple things which can be improved in CA TDM. It has a feature called TDM Portal, where testers can find test data by themselves, based on multiple models. They can reserve the data so that it belongs to one group or individual. Obviously, that data is not available to anybody else. Without this tool, if somebody goes through the back end, via SQL and pulls that data, you can't do anything. But through the Portal, if somebody reserves the data, it's his. This feature is for one environment. But if a different group of testers wanted that data for a different environment, they can't use it via CA TDM. That feature doesn't exist. You have to build a portal or you have to bridge the two environments. That is a big challenge.

The UI could be improved and I see they are going to web-based. That's still in progress but I really hope all of that happens pretty soon and the entire UI gets migrated from the desktop to web-based.

The integration with various utilities is also really important. That still has to happen. That's a major area for improvement.
