London, UK, 10th January 2018 - Validata Group announces today the new release of its Data as a Service (DaaS) solution to help Temenos clients bring agility and acceleration to their testing, migration and upgrade projects by delivering production data more efficiently.
An upgrade or transformation project can take too long , cost a lot, and setting up the right environments can be an excruciating process – and can extend projects by weeks. IT teams have long complained about slow refreshes that involve manual pre- and post-processing, leaving them with two options: either execute data refreshes that introduce system downtime and impact developer productivity, or skip the refresh process and risk the consequences of developing against low-quality data.
Validata is a dynamic data platform that enables successful implementation of DevOps and Continuous Delivery as it delivers the right data in the right place at the right time. It addresses the challenges of core banking upgrades and the need for better data orchestration, delivering application data with the scalability, automated capabilities demanded by fast-moving project teams.
The solution allows for on demand access to latest production data and create production-like data sets for testing which increases project velocity and eliminates delays due to the lack of ‘fit for purpose’ data. It provides a ‘sandbox’ with all data in one place, for query and report design and facilitates on demand data access across sources so analysts can explore data with no impact to other production processes or systems. With on-demand access to a fresh, virtual copy of the full data set at all stages of your project pipeline, the time to detect defects is also greatly reduced, enabling your organization to build higher quality applications faster.
The ability to test, rewind test data, and then test again, reduces development cycles and allows teams to maintain test data quality which results in 50% faster Temenos project/release cycles with higher software quality.
It reduces the workload burden by replacing existing data extraction and management processes and remains in constant synchronization with all sources provisioning data at any point in time.
A masked copy of the production data is updated from production on-demand, and is re-masked after each update. Developers and testers get access to virtual copies of masked data, which can be refreshed in minutes instead of hours.
Validata installs on-premise or in a cloud environment such as Microsoft Azure, ensuring reduced data security risks and compliance with key regulations. Vaios Vaitsis, Founder and CEO of Validata Group states, “ The biggest benefit of using DaaS as a strategic data management platform for testing and migration, is time; getting things done faster, in hours, instead of days or weeks. Temenos clients are able to test in current environments with realistic, working datasets, seeing a material improvement on quality and productivity and achieving ROI payback in just nine months by cutting data storage requirements by 70% and freeing DBA team time by 75%.”
