"Datamaker is especially useful to overcome database corruption during testing, and to get testers thinking about their need for referential data in testing and development environments."
"Data Inheritance" is a concept and best practice methodology defined and practiced by Grid-Tools and developed for the Datamaker™ solution by our senior team of software developers.
Do you have problems managing and controlling your test and development data? Is your test data strategy to have hundreds of spread sheets that need to be maintained by hand? Where do you store your test data and can it be re-used, manipulated or enhanced? Datamaker™ brings all of your test data assets into one central location. This test data warehouse can then be accessed by all your testers and developers and includes previously created test data, data in transition and data created using Datamaker™.
Data is brought into the tool, or the "Test Data Warehouse", where it can be inherited and used to create further test cases and scenarios. By "inherited" we mean "re-used" again and again, across multiple versions. Testers can manipulate, edit, explode, bulk up and enhance old test data and modify it based on the type of test being conducted. By inheriting test data, testers will save large amounts of time and energy otherwise spent on manually creating test cases.
The Grid-Tools Test Data Warehouse is a unique and innovative concept. You simply will not find any other vendor with such a groundbreaking solution. It is the test data management technique of the future.
A central test data repository, used to store, manipulate and manage your data, allows data to be re-used, improved and shared across your organisation. The repository will quickly grow into a valuable asset for your company and quickly revolutionize your development and testing strategy.
