What is most valuable?

I really appreciate using the match keys and comparing the records before and after masking. This is done by joining multiple tables to form a single record. This helps to get a faster validation of data.

How has it helped my organization?

The product has helped to streamline the Test Data Management (TDM) process. Without this product, participation from several stakeholders such as DBAs, Admins, and the Environment refresh team were required.

What needs improvement?

Scripting complex data masking requirement in Lua can be converted into a simpler, user-friendly interface. Instead of a free text editor, which is used to code the functions (mostly "if-else" conditions), a drop-down like interface can be... more»

What do you think of IBM InfoSphere Optim Test Data Management?

Valuable Features Data masking with consistency across databases and applications is the most valuable feature. • Improvements to My Organization We only do data masking as of now because it is a compliance requirement. However, the benefits in sub-setting have not been realized yet. No application has availed of the service. • Room for Improvement Licensing could be improved. The PVU licensing mechanism is a limiting factor to expanding the use of the tool. • Use of Solution I have been using IBM Optim for five years. • Stability Issues We did have some stability issues. • Scalability Issues We did have some scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support I would give technical support a rating of 7/10. • Previous Solutions We did not...
