It is imperative to adopt a test data management solution to relieve the costly drain of resources, storage and time required to manage, support and secure data across SAP environments.
Vernon Hills, IL (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
Hayes Technology Group, the developer of Gold Client® Solutions, the premier refresh and replication data management software for use within SAP environments, today announced that it has been identified as a sample vendor in the Gartner “Hype Cycle for Application Development, 2012” report. Hayes Technology Group is named in the Test Data Management category. 
According to Gartner, “The cost of building and maintaining test data is high, and it is rising because of the increasing need to have data that matches production data for audit validation, and provides the necessary security and privacy.” To achieve the greatest business impact, the report includes the following guiding principles:
- Organizations must ensure that accurate data and metadata are available during development, testing and training, while protecting privacy and sensitive data.
- Maximizing the value of these systems requires the efficient selection, masking and loading of data onto systems.
Gold Client Solutions offers a unique, surgical approach that allows teams to quickly select and copy subsets of only relevant data from production or non-production sources to non-production targets. The time and effort required to replicate data is drastically reduced by eliminating the need to copy the entire production database to non-productive environments. Users can easily set data transformation criteria and rules for securing exported data, synchronizing subsets of relevant data across connected SAP systems, copying an “intelligent slice” of relevant transactional and/or master data from a source to a target system and troubleshooting production problems outside of the production environment.
Additionally, a clean and easy-to-use interface makes complex scrambling functionality as easy as point and click. The extensive and powerful data transformation scrambles or masks sensitive data to preserve data security in potentially less secure systems.
“Companies are finding that it is imperative to adopt a test data management solution to relieve the costly drain of resources, storage and time required to manage, support and secure data across SAP environments,” said Matt Hayes, CTO and founder of Hayes Technology Group. “We believe being named by Gartner as a sample vendor in the hype cycle report further reinforces the high benefit of Gold Client Solutions to our customers’ data lifecycle strategies.”
