Can you mask test data consistently across combined SAP and non-SAP landscapes? EPI-USE Labs and DATPROF, both market-leading test data management solution providers, have connected their technical data masking solutions so their clients can do just this.





The test data management market is demanding effective privacy solutions, and the option to cover the entire chain consistently, both technically and functionally. Many sectors, such as energy and retail, have mixed database technologies that require specific solutions. To avoid isolated ‘silo solutions’, a combination of solutions is needed. That is why EPI-USE Labs and DATPROF decided to combine their expertise, and connect EPI-USE Labs’ Data Sync Manager™(DSM) with DATPROF Privacy. This is an innovative solution that enables their clients to mask data consistently across multiple databases, both SAP and non-SAP, to ensure a consistent data-set throughout their landscapes.


"Working with DATPROF adds another dimension to our solution, but more importantly, it provides a simple way to solve a challenging problem for our clients. It complements and extends our test data management solution for SAP to also create, and mask, test data outside SAP in a flexible and repeatable way,” says Paul Hammersley, Senior Vice President for ALM Solutions at EPI-USE Labs.


“This solution brings huge benefits to our clients, especially those with mixed data technologies,” says Bert Nienhuis, Chief Product Officer at DATPROF. “And a logical next step on the roadmap is connecting the subset and slicing solutions for SAP and non-SAP. This reinforces the mission of both DATPROF and EPI-USE Labs: simplifying getting the right test data at the right time.”
