Full featured, responsive support, but data governance integration could improve
Pros and Cons
  • "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."
  • "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."

What is our primary use case?

Informatica Test Data Management is used for test data optimization.

Our clients have several databases and for the test environments, according to the GDPR requirements, they need anonymized data. We run Informatica Test Data Management for anonymization.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Test Data Management for approximately eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is quite good, we have no major problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of Informatica Test Data Management is good. We use quite a large database and the performance is decent. However, we had to tune it for a while until we could achieve a good performance. The solution is able to be tuned, but it's not obvious if you have only recently implemented it to receive better results.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support from Informatica Test Data Management is great. We are responsive and we have received valuable information for our problems.

How was the initial setup?

The initial installation is reasonably simple.

We have quite a good practice for the new implementation and for upgrades. It took half a day for us to complete the process.

What other advice do I have?

Informatica Test Data Management is no longer available. Informatica has decided to stop selling the solution. They promised to support the existing configurations for many years but as a partner, we cannot sell the solution under these circumstances. They will upgrade the configuration of the existing customers, but for a completely new customer, you cannot sell it.

The new version will be part of the Informatica cloud solution, but it is not yet ready. It is not as well-developed as the on-premise Informatica Test Data Management version.

I rate Informatica Test Data Management a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
