With Optim™ Development Studio 2.2, built-in integration with Optim Test Data Management enables developers and database administrators to use copy-and-paste function to generate an Optim Test Data Management request. The request can then be used for the efficient creation of a consistent, right-sized, referentially intact subset of data for testing. This methodology also enables you to enforce data privacy standards that were originally defined in the data model that used InfoSphere™ Data Architect. Developers can see which columns are private to ensure that the generated script enforces the requirement to include the Optim Data Privacy option for de-identifying private data. This article offers an end-to-end example scenario depicting a data architect, a database administrator, and a developer completing the steps needed for the solution.
