Masks data across heterogeneous data sources. Provides data dumps to external developers.

What other advice do I have?

Instead of implementing custom, hand-coded data masking scripts and procedures in-house, go for a well-documented, supported, enterprise-wide, and applicable product. The rest can be achieved with some customization. The development of an identical software product simply wouldn't be worth the effort. The learning curve is not long and the product documentation is available in the Informatica knowledge base. Visit the Informatica Velocity portal for best practices, project lifecycle, and roles/skill sets needed, before investing.

The data masking feature has been the most frequently used one.

What other advice do I have?

This has been created as an add-on to the robust and famous Informatica PowerCenter server. (If the available, internet bandwidth is strong.) I would like to rate the product as follows: * Usability/Ease of use (developer): I would give it a rating of 9/10, as it enables quick code development. * Help file: I would give it a rating of 6/10, as it needs a considerable amount of improvement to be user-friendly. * Admin control: I would give it a rating of 7/10, since the Informatica admin was unable to start up its service for unknown reasons.
