K2View, a leading provider of real-time, distributed data management solutions, today announced that AT&T has adopted K2View TDM as its platform of record for test data management. The adoption of K2View TDM will provide AT&T with high quality test data, better security and significantly faster performance, in support of the company’s DevOps goals.
“We’re on a journey to modernize our apps and to realize the benefits of embracing a DevOps methodology,” said Ward Chewning, vice president of network services and shared platform, AT&T. “But while implementing a DevOps methodology and moving to agile is great in theory, you hit a roadblock if you don’t have realistic data to test against. K2View TDM provides a self-service approach for our teams to access realistic data when and where it’s needed – without impacting production source systems.”
Prior to adopting K2View for test data management, AT&T teams used a process that required a central team to go through source systems and provision data. This process required retrofitting the data to the testing environment. By using K2View TDM and gaining access to self-service test data, AT&T has accelerated its development lifecycle.
“Organizations globally are adopting agile methodologies, but data access and delivery hasn’t kept up with this transition,” said Nick Lazzaro, CEO, K2View. “The problem lies with underlying technology and traditional approaches to data management, which require complex and costly processes to acquire, transform, and mask data for testing purposes. With K2View TDM, AT&T is enabling their teams to get the right data at the right time for testing. K2View’s micro-database approach allows you to model data once and use it over and over again.”
