IBM® InfoSphere® Optim™ Test Data Fabrication can help your organization address the challenges of creating high-quality test data. It leverages deep expertise and years of experience in constraint satisfaction and automatic test-case generation from IBM Research. The solution quickly and efficiently creates high-quality test data while minimizing the risks related to using sensitive production data.

InfoSphere Optim Test Data Fabrication supports multiple use cases. For example, you can augment existing data sets by generating test data when no real data is available. You can use the solution to help protect private information while avoiding the need to mask or otherwise alter production data. It can also support an agile workflow, enabling you to iteratively modify data to improve its quality and address evolving requirements.

Introduction to the Fabrication Process

7 minute demo

In this demonstration, you will begin the process of understanding how Optim Test Data Fabrication can be used to generate data for a relational database. This demo will populate a single table with realistic yet fictitious data.

Expanding Knowledge into how Test Data Fabrication Can Help

12 minute demo

Building on the introduction demonstration, this demo will expand on the single table example by adding a related child table. This shows how Test Data Fabrication can be used to create data for more complex data models.

Adding Columns to Existing Data Structures

7 minute demo

In this demonstration, you will see how Test Data Fabrication can be used to extend a data model. Here, a column is added to the existing model and all data is copied with the exception of the new column which will have fictitious data.
