This tool is super fast and it has solved many of our issues. It is also much better than many other solutions which are on the market. We've already tested different ones, but this one looks the best currently. We can deliver, first,... more»

What needs improvement?

If you want to automate something, you need to figure it out. There is no easy way (software is only for Windows). I am missing a lot of terminal tools, or API for the software. The software is working on Windows and, from some perspectives,... more»

What is most valuable?

TDM has tons of great solutions involved in one package. For me personally, what I find to be most valuable is its ability to do synthetic data creation. I love that because it has a lot of flexibility and you do not have to worry about one... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The benefits of doing something like the data creation is that you are going to be able to totally have control of your data from the get-go. You are not worrying about "what you see is what you get" kind of results from a production set.... more»

What needs improvement?

As the solution continues to evolve, the one thing I like about it is the API-friendly layers that they have added into the realm. So, I just would like to see more support around that and more usability. If we can continue expand upon that,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has really changed the culture in the company because nobody could ever imagine generating millions of records. Even production systems have just a couple of million records. When you want to test your applications with three or four times... more»
