Broadcom Test Data Manager Valuable Features

The combination of extract, mask, and load, along with synthetic data, is what is generally needed by any of our clients, and CA TDM has really good compatibility in both of these areas.

CA is one of the few tool suites that has end-to-end features. Whatever role you are playing, whatever personality you are trying to address, it has that feature. For example, CA Service Virtualization goes hand-in-hand with TDM. In addition, TDM has automation. CA has most features that complement the whole testing cycle.

CA TDM has open APIs. If we are going to use a set of Excel data and pull out the feed and we want to help the Service Virtualization by providing a set of dynamic responses to the request that that service layer is getting, how do we do that? We can use the API layer at the moment the whole process stabilizes, after three months or so. In other tools, that takes longer. This open API capability is good in CA TDM.

The entire tool is good and I like the synthetic data generation, that's really good. It's valuable because you don't have Prod data so, instead, you can create multiple copies of similar data. You can write rules and create permutations and combinations according to your needs. Or you can take a snippet of the Prod data and replicate it. All of that is really helpful.
