Grid-Tools Limited, the leading vendor of test data management software and solutions globally, has engaged in a partnership with Primeur, a multinational company and one of the main producers of middleware solutions, specializing in managed file transfer, end-to-end security and governance. The two organizations will be working together to target Italian, Spanish and French organizations interested in best practice strategies and solutions for test data management.
Provisioning test and development data has always been a complicated, expensive and tedious process. Most organizations store and maintain roughly eight to twelve copies of production databases in order to provision test and development environments. As production databases grow larger and larger, the overhead costs of this start to multiply immensely. Organizations are forced to find further storage and server space and spend hours manually editing and manipulating large amounts of data to ensure it is project-specific. They must also adequately mask and de-identify data so it maintains compliance standards.
These aspects are even more critical for large enterprise customers with mainframe platforms - like banks, insurance companies and Public Administration – where, in addition to the problem of managing test data, it is essential to follow appropriate security policies.
Grid-Tools strives to solve the test data headache by offering fast and easy solutions for data creation, data masking and test data management. Primeur will now be enabled to offer these solutions to the Italian and Spanish markets.
Simon Mikellides, Grid-Tools Head of Global Sales and Strategic Alliances, commented on the new partnership stating, “Primeur is a dynamic company and a perfect strategic fit for Grid-Tools. They have a well established service division with experienced personnel, offices in Italy, France and Spain and a strong portfolio of high profile clients. Primeur understands their customers and understands how our products fit the market”.
“Paolo Chieregatti, Middleware Competence Center Leader at Primeur, stated, “Test Data Management is a big issue in complex IT environments. Customers are looking for innovative solutions to speed up application testing with compliance for security roles. We strongly believe that Grid-Tools provides the best technology for data creation, data masking and test data management. Primeur can help our customers to better manage the test data environment by combining Grid-Tools technology with a high level of skills.”
