Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of data integration and Big Data management software solutions, announced today that a leading global manufacturer and marketer of home appliances (the "Customer") that implemented Attunity Gold Client has recognized increases in test data management efficiencies and productivity, while avoiding significant costs on alternative options.
This leading global appliance manufacturer has billions of dollars in annual sales, and dozens of manufacturing and technology research centers worldwide. With several global data centers and hundreds of SAP production instances, the Customer had conducted a Global IT Quality Survey to identify pain points related to testing. The IT team identified opportunities to improve quality assurance related to its ERP and CRM systems, specifically in the areas of assembling test data, refreshing QA systems, and being able to create smaller environments for testing that reduce total costs and increase efficiency.
The customer recognized that improving test data management could help remedy many of its challenges in productivity and efficiency. They chose Attunity Gold Client because of its flexibility and ease of use, which are important attributes in an SAP environment. In addition, the Attunity solution helped them avoid six-figure costs associated with alternative test data management options and projects such as upgrades and data migrations.
Historically, teams at the Customer equated test data with full production system copies. Attunity Gold Client has been able to completely change the way they view test data. The solution also makes it possible to do master data delta refreshes, as well as transactional data time slices between system copies. The Customer now has an agile and flexible approach to test data for its ERP and CRM systems worldwide, supporting its SAP environments including SAP HANA.
"We are pleased that we were able to help this global leader improve its test data management efforts to be much more efficient and affordable," explained Matt Hayes, VP SAP Business at Attunity. "Our work with this valued customer demonstrates the bottom-line impact that SAP application lifecycle management can have for large-scale organizations. It is rewarding to see and we look forward to helping many more companies like them with similar challenges."
