Press release from: Grid-Tools Limited

Oxford, UK – Award-winning Datamaker™ from Grid-Tools Limited, the leading vendor of test data management, test data generation and data masking software and solutions, will be the focus of a presentation at HP Discover in Frankfurt this December.

Herman Willemen, HP’s ALM Business Development Manager for EMEA, and Huw Price, Managing Director of Grid-Tools, will give a joint talk entitled Test data engineering powered by Datamaker™. The focus of the presentation will be to reveal how HP Software Professional Services can address issues such as how to deliver a faster and more efficient data masking process, how to maintain business and referential integrity between desensitized files, creating synthetic data to increase testing rigor and how to underpin a ‘testing on demand’ capability.

Datamaker™ is the preferred test data management solution of HP and is now seamlessly integrated with HP ALM Quality Center 11. It enables organizations and businesses to maximize their competitive advantage by provisioning rich sets of high quality, ‘fit for purpose’ data which can be linked directly to test plans and defect modules within HP ALM Quality Center 11, shortening test cycles and improving quality.

Huw Price, Managing Director of Grid-Tools said: “As testing now accounts for up to 60 per cent of the development lifecycle of an application, selecting the right test data engineering tools and processes is a significant issue.

“We are delighted that HP identified the advantages that Datamaker™ offers and we very much welcome the opportunity to present insights into how organizations can transform their application delivery solutions.”

Grid-Tools will also be exhibiting at the event, where Datamaker™ will be demonstrated and discussions about its capabilities and role in test data management can take place.
