Intelligent database management and verification

Total application quality for SQL Server, Oracle and IBM iSeries

TestBench is our solution that uniquely addresses the validation of all database effects and the creation of cut down, representative test data to reduce test times and data footprints. Data confidentiality is addressed and the unique user-managed data rollback capability reduces environment downtime, improving testing productivity and accuracy.

Traditionally, software test automation tools concentrate on testing only what the eye can see.

We believe this strategy – looking for defects in only one area – to be an unacceptable compromise. We take a more holistic approach that embraces this visual layer but is equally rigorous in examining the underlying activity in the database. TestBench integrates with other testing solutions from Original Software in a way which is accessible to both users and testers to ensure you retain ‘total application quality’.

In short, TestBench is a class-leading, totally comprehensive, proven test data management and verification solution.

TestBench Benefits

Generates smart data schema
We think data without context is outdated. TestBench’s smart data retrieval means users will immediately know what the data means, where it’s coming from and what to do with it. Intelligent data streamlines application testing and development, creating a more efficient workflow.
Compliancy with the Data Privacy Legislation
Never leave your data out there for all to see again. TestBench’s consistent scrambling scheme effectively protects your data, processes and end use applications, helping you maintain your competitive edge.
Increase test repeatability opportunities
TestBench allows you to set manually or automatically restore points for when your application takes a wrong turn, returning it to an acceptable state. Nobody wants to start from the beginning or dig to find the root problem, both of which are time-consuming and require significant effort.
Enables faster results validation
Split-testing, but for applications. TestBench allows you to see and understand the differences between version, empowering you with vital decision making knowledge of what works best, what needs further development and what simply doesn’t work. This feature will save you time and money later on when making changes may affect large portions of the application.
Optimises the test permutations to guarantee maximum coverage
Using only the data you want for sampling decreases testing times while delivering the results you need to know. By customizing the data sets you want to use, you can maximize test efficiency while minimizing the man-hours needed to decipher the results – saving time and money.
