K2View TDM, a fast-growing, leading provider of data solutions distribution, announced that it will become AT&T’s new platform for test data management. The adoption marks a major partnership between two Dallas-headquartered companies.
In the past, AT&T’s process for testing data required a central team tasked with going through source systems and provision data, which required retrofitting the data to the testing environment. With the new partnership, and K2Views patented approach, AT&T will have access to high quality and real-time test data, enhancing security and overall performance speed and accelerating the development life cycle.
K2View’s DevOps methodology combines software development and IT operations. When companies are implementing a DevOps methodology, oftentimes there’s a lack of access to high-quality test data, according to K2View.
“We’re on a journey to modernize our apps and to realize the benefits of embracing a DevOps methodology,” said Ward Chewning, vice president of network services and shared platform at AT&T, in a statement. “But while implementing a DevOps methodology and moving to agile is great in theory, you hit a roadblock if you don’t have realistic data to test against. K2View TDM provides a self-service approach for our teams to access realistic data when and where it’s needed—without impacting production source systems.”
K2View calls itself the only data solutions company that offers a product to clients that encompasses all data in one place. Regardless of how many different systems the organization has, the flagship product, called K2View Fabric, enables organizations to access all relevant data in a quick, easy, and secure way.
“Organizations globally are adopting agile methodologies, but data access and delivery hasn’t kept up with this transition,” Nick Lazzaro, K2View’s CEO, said in a statement. “The problem lies with underlying technology and traditional approaches to data management, which require complex and costly processes to acquire, transform, and mask data for testing purposes. With K2View TDM, AT&T is enabling their teams to get the right data at the right time for testing. K2View’s micro-database approach allows you to model data once and use it over and over again.”
K2View was founded in Israel in 2009, but moved its headquarters to Dallas in 2016. After experiencing 100 percent growth during the past three years, the company decided to extend its international presence last year by opening two new offices in Germany and the Netherlands. Lazzaro told us at the time that K2View was moving into its fourth phase with the international expansion. In November, it was named one of Dallas’ top 100 fastest-growing privately held companies by SMU.
