We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The synthetic data generation is really good... 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."
"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 the 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."
"It provides the ability to roll back to a point in time or roll forward without the assistance of a DBA."
"Delphix interfaces are simple to use and very user friendly."
"Data being available anytime is a life changer."
"The most valuable feature is creating virtual databases."
"The integration with various utilities is also really important. That still has to happen. That's a major area for improvement."
"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... 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."
"My only complaint about this solution is the price."
"Delphix is a strong solution for virtualization, but it's not strong enough for creating data, so we have to use another solution for creating new data."
"GUI could be improved."
"This product should be extended and made to be a more comprehensive storage solution."
"The cost of this tool is pretty high... CA provides licenses for different utilities like masking but even if you break it up, the pricing is still high."
"The cost is $370K annually for the Delphix Masking Engine and Delphix Virtualization Engine."
