Have you wanted to learn more about K2View's Test Data Management (TDM) product? If so, you are in luck; last week, Hod Rotem, VP of Global Solutions at K2View, provided a live demo on TDM. Below are just a few of the highlights from the webinar.

And if you missed it, no worries! You can find the archived version here.

The TDM Data Problem

The monotony of going line by line, column by column to extract and analyze data under traditional data management costs the business time and money – and that is primarily due to the inefficiencies of traditional data management. You need to remove these traditional constraints and instead access and analyze your data holistically. K2View utilizes the Digital Entity, which is a literal digital version of a person, place, or thing, enabling your company to logically keep data organized and remove the former restrictions of data management.


You may be thinking, "Being able to access my data in its entirety is great, but this probably means there are interruptions when pulling the data." However, this is not the case.

With K2View TDM, you can access and move your data as needed in real time, without impacting any of your development or testing teams. You can freely view your data holistically with zero impact on any of your teams. Lack of interruptions means your systems remain up and running, which, in turn, means less time is spent, and efficiency is increased.


What if a massive data breach could be practically impossible? Admittedly, that may sound like a fairytale, but K2View TDM actually does this. Each Digital Entity is encrypted individually, and fields containing sensitive information are protected with data masking increasing the overall security integrity.

The Re-Do Button

Imagine you are in the middle of a days-long test cycle when you discover a mistake. Maybe your teeth clench, or you find yourself releasing a low sigh at the thought of having to start your test cycle over again. If only there were a "re-do" button. But wait! With K2View there is. DataFlux operates as a time machine by creating multiple snapshots as testing progresses.

These snapshots enable you to reset to a period before the error, so, instead of restarting the whole cycle, you can go back to when the error occurred, whether it was ten minutes or hours prior. DataFlux also has the added advantage of not interrupting other testers, even when they are in the same environment; this is due to the "re-do" only impacting the specific data unit.

These are just some of the capabilities of K2View's TDM. This is just the start of solving the DevOps Data Problem – if you want to learn more, be sure to download our white paper.
