Test data management tools for managing capture replay scripts
Grid-Tools have announced the inclusion of Data Test Professional to the ‘GT Datamaker Complete Testing Tool-Set’. Data Test Professional is now offered to IT testing departments as a client desktop tool (at £450 per seat) to manage and create scripts.

Huw Price, Grid-Tools Managing Director, stated, “Grid-Tools maintain the ‘data-centric’ approach to testing whereby, our focus is to ensure the quality of our client’s test data is of the right quality to produce the best test results possible. Data Test Professional is essential for companies using capture replay script tools like HP LoadRunner or QTP. I say “essential” because we really believe that managing the data feeding these tools is crucial for quality testing. Simply put, the better the data you pump into your test, the better the test results.”

Tools to improve data testing efficiency
GT Datamaker editions offer test data generation to create accurate test data, data masking, data scrambling, data modelling, data quality assurance, subsetting, database compare, a test data warehouse and ‘Test Data on Demand’. With the launch of their new product, Data Test Professional, Grid-Tools have come full circle with their suite of testing tools. The entire suite provides a successful and compelling proposition to companies looking to improve testing efficiency, reduce IT expenditure, ensure legal compliance and add essential infrastructure to their testing methodologies.

Grid-Tools’ Data Test Professional has a highly convincing list of features, notably the fact that the tool allows companies to get the most out of their investments in HP LoadRunner, QTP and Forecast applications.

The tool is also incredibly easy to use, as there is no need to write code. This saves time in the testing process, allowing testers to focus their energy elsewhere, instead of manually creating data. Grid-Tools argue this point, stressing the tool provides immediate ROI via the time-saving aspect.

DTP can be used with all versions and upgrades.
