"When looking into various test data management solutions, we found that Datamaker was very useful for getting the right kind of data for testing and development. This was incredibly important for us and one of the main factors in our tool selection. Yes, we needed data for testing and development, but we also needed many data scenerios. Datamaker gave us a small amount of data, but a rich spread of data."

The painful truth is that too many test managers think that by using the HP/Mercury QTP solution they are using correct and valuable test data. However, they are only making an ineffective process just a little more efficient.
Grid-Tools Data Design™ is truly different from all of the "noise" in the marketplace today, as its primary focus is on ensuring you are using the right kind of test data. Datamaker Data Design™ focuses on the following elements:

Datamaker Data Design™ offers the ability to create rich combinations of data automatically, ensuring testing projects relying heavily on underlying data are much more effective. The tool offers a realistic method to create fantastically rich sets of test data that would have been impossible using manual techniques.
The two respective technologies involved in the tool improve the effectiveness and efficiency in key areas of testing and test automation including: ensuring better code coverage, the detection of numerous defects and bugs and the management, manipulation and creation of test data.
Each of these methods is flawed, as none of them provides the rich combinations needed for high quality testing.
Data Design™ comes with two distinct test case design engines. When you invoke this directly you will be given a choice of which you would like to use.
Cause-Effect Graphing (C-E Graphing) takes you to the Graphing-based test engine. Quick Design (QD) takes you to the Pairs-Wise based test engines. This includes Orthogonal Pairs and Optimized Pairs. C-E Graphing is intended for business critical, mission critical, and/or safety critical functions. It ensures that you not only get the right answer, but that you get the right answer for the right reason. It addresses the fact that multiple defects can sometimes cancel each other out. C-E Graphing ensures that defects are propagated to an observable point where testers can see the problem. QD is aimed at testing user interfaces (e.g., web pages, screens in client server applications). It is also applicable in designing configuration tests and quick shake-downs of even critical functions. Both C-E Graphing and QD address reducing the nearly infinite number of potential tests down to small, highly optimized test libraries. They both have full constraint rules support (One and Only One, Exclusive, Inclusive, Requires, and Masks) to ensure that the tests created are physically possible, while still supporting full negative testing.Back to the top
