Basiq Dental has better test data and happy users thanks to DSM

With Data Sync Manager, a growing business improves their test data quality, refreshes data when needed and saves disk space

The benefit we get from using Data Sync Manager is that we quickly have test data available. This means I could start a job to get the data from the productive system for the coming night, and then tomorrow I can import the data into the development system. So in two days I can have the test data available in the development system.

Basiq Dental faced a simple challenge:

  • They needed quality test data in their non-productive environments without the long wait for a full system copy
  • They wanted to improve their testing process by having production quality data, but with a reduced footprint.

Before we had Data Sync Manager, we had to create our own test data. We also had to rely on a third-party supplier to make an SAP system copy. The disadvantage of that is that they had to make a full copy of our production environment. This took a lot of time, and also took a lot of space on the hard disk

The solution:
DSM empowers the team

Basiq Dental bought Data Sync Manager Client Sync for their ERP environment. This technology is empowering the team to refresh their own data as they need it.

We wanted to decide what and when to copy from the productive system. We wanted to have it in time - so we wanted it quickly. And we didn’t want the full size of the productive system. A partner of ours suggested EPI-USE Labs because their product would fulfill that need.”

Result: Basiq Dental has better data quality and ‘happy users’

We now use Data Sync Manager six times a year. Every two months, we have data refreshed, and we then copy it to our test system and our development system. The development team can use the test data again, and when the users of the system have to do testing, they can go to the test system with accurate data and do an acceptance test on developments that we have done to the system
