Data Sync Manager cleans up Vebego’s test data

“The Data Sync Manager suite ticked all the boxes for us” - Sylvia Odekerken, Service Manager at Vebego

We had support from the internal team for the product; they were highly involved throughout the selection process. And they were able to specify what they needed in an SAP data copy solution. They wanted an easy-to-use tool that could be used for all SAP modules – that was the most important thing.

At the EPI-USE Labs’ User Group event, we were able to get a clear understanding of the business case for using Data Sync Manager. And also connect with other people that use the tool, and share experiences. You have to be really critical about how you select a tool, so you won’t be disappointed and you won’t be surprised. We weren’t disappointed – we were very pleasantly surprised.

The Vebego team realised that they required an SAP® data copy solution for creating test systems. They identified the following criteria for selecting the best solution:

Based on these criteria, they selected eight vendors to evaluate. Only EPI-USE Labs met all criteria. Ultimately, Vebego chose to buy EPI-USE Labs’ Data Sync Manager™ (DSM) suite: Client Sync™, Object Sync™ and Data Secure™.

When we told our Account Manager that we had used the tool ourselves already, he was quite surprised! It was so easy; we basically just downloaded the transport, and uploaded it to our system. You make some configurations and if you are a little bit familiar with the system you can do that. And it was running. It was really really easy for us.

The solution:
DSM suite for landscape management

Vebego selected the Data Sync Manager™ (DSM) suite to support them with their landscape management. They use DSM for:

  • Periodic client refresh (Client Sync) for every major release
  • Data scrambling on Development and Test systems (Data Secure)
  • Solving specific issues quickly (Object Sync)
  • Improving test quality (Client Sync)

The internal team was curious to try the product even before the implementation. One of the key factors for selecting DSM was ease of use.

Benefits to Vebego

Vebego is able to refresh the non-productions systems with actual test/ development data without any personal sensitive/identifiable data. This is helping them to speed up testing with continuous agile developments. The solution also allows them to recreate production issues when it is needed for investigation and resolution.

  • Increased GDPR compliance by scrambling test data
  • IT costs and time saved
  • Improved copy processes with reliable test data
