We performed a comparison between Broadcom Test Data Manager and Informatica Test Data Management (TDM) based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Test Data Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The synthetic data generation is really good... You can write rules and create permutations and combinations according to your needs. Or you can take a snippet of the Prod data and replicate it."
"CA is one of the few tool suites that has end-to-end features. Whatever role you are playing, whatever personality you are trying to address, it has that feature. For example, CA Service Virtualization goes hand-in-hand with TDM."
"Broadcom TDM's best feature is the self-service portal."
"The combination of extract, mask, and load, along with synthetic data, is what is generally needed by any of our clients, and CA TDM has really good compatibility in both of the areas."
"Informatica Test Data Management is a complete solution. I'm not very deep in the technical aspect of the solution, but most of the workflows are now completely automated. There are some minor elements where we have to still add manual parts to the implementation."
"It has a feature called TDM Portal, where testers can find test data by themselves, based on multiple models. They can reserve the data so that it belongs to one group or individual. Obviously, that data is not available to anybody else... This feature is for one environment. But if a different group of testers wanted that data for a different environment, they can't use it via CA TDM. That feature doesn't exist."
"Broadcom TDM takes a long time to import documents, which wastes time that could be spent on other things."
"The integration with various utilities is also really important. That still has to happen. That's a major area for improvement."
"Informatica has a data governance suite, and at the moment, there is no connection between the data governance elements, such as the data catalog, and the Informatica Test Data Management software. For example, the data discovery which is part of both solutions is two separate things. If you have a data discovery in the data catalog, then we cannot use it for Informatica Test Data Management purposes and vice versa. The same software vendor, has two different products, with the same functionality. There's was no need to separate things. This is something which was a problem in a use case of the customer where this was the reason why they didn't choose the Informatica solution."
CA Test Data Manager offers an automated solution to one of the most time-consuming and resource-intensive problems in Continuous Delivery - creating, maintaining and provisioning of the test data needed to rigorously test evolving applications. CA Test Data Manager uniquely combines elements of data subsetting, masking and synthetic, on-demand data generation to enable testing teams to meet the agile needs of the organization.
Informatica TDM empowers testing teams to generate test data sets for both simple and complex test case scenarios; spot and address data privacy risks with a complete library of prepackaged data masking algorithms; and define and reuse test data subset and masking policies across multiple applications and locations without the need to recode.
