Generate and maintain comprehensive test data

Rapid deployment of mainframe applications requires sophisticated data creation and testing facilities for z Systems data held in z/OS files, DB2 or IMS databases or WebSphere MQ.

Test data must accurately reflect the complexities and variations of the real world. If comprehensive test data is not created during the development lifecycle then costly application failures could occur in the live production environment.

Macro 4's InSync® solution provides easy-to-use data manipulation facilities for creating, copying, extracting, converting, reformatting and validating the full range of application test data that is essential for developing reliable z Systems applications. Using InSync® you can quickly and easily extract production data and disguise it for use in testing. This approach allows you to test applications more thoroughly, using realistic data, while complying fully with data privacy regulations.

Data manipulation is also essential when correcting failures in live systems, where it is imperative to find and fix data errors with speed, precision and full audit reporting. A key capability of our solution is a comprehensive batch processing language, designed to swiftly manipulate data in production batch applications.

A test data creation solution from Macro 4 makes it easy for you to:
  •  Complete rigorous testing in shorter timescales, with smaller data volumes, using sophisticated functions to extract data that meet all test conditions
  •  Enhance productivity and minimize the need for training as developers use similar interfaces and commands to work with all types of mainframe data
  •  Comply with data protection laws by using our Data Privacy feature to ensure the anonymity of test data
