Improvisation in the area of the self-service user interface for test data management is required to cater to test data needs.

Areas of improvement: * Installation is too cumbersome. * GUI * Very clunky Windows 3.1 look and feel. Additional features: Unless I missed something, the direct connectivity to DB2i rather than going through a federated server.

The Core Optim was much better than the newer front-end release Designer & Manager, which added more complexity. However, the newer release has more elaborate reports.

I would like to be able to combine different masking functions on the same column map, making more complex masking without the need to write a Lua procedure.
