The Critical Need for a Strong Test Data Management Solution 

Bank Leumi faced a critical need for a robust solution to furnish testing environments with production-like data that could be refreshed daily. The existing manual provisioning method proved sluggish and prone to errors, resulting in inaccuracies within test data and potential breaches of compliance regulations. Recognizing the urgency, key stakeholders emphasized the necessity for a Test Data Management (TDM) solution to enhance operational efficiency and guarantee adherence to stringent data privacy standards.

These challenges not only impeded development cycles but also escalated operational costs, significantly impacting the bank’s capacity to promptly deliver top-tier digital products. This setback directly affected the bank’s strategic vision of pioneering the industry with cutting-edge digital solutions.


Streamlined TDM Integration and Data Anonymization

Bank Leumi meticulously evaluated potential solutions based on several key criteria to ensure they aligned with the bank’s stringent requirements. Firstly, the solution needed to automate the test data provisioning process, streamlining operations and enhancing efficiency. Secondly, the solution needed to incorporate robust data anonymization capabilities to ensure compliance with stringent privacy regulations, safeguarding sensitive information effectively. Thirdly, scalability was paramount, with the solution expected to handle the bank’s extensive database requirements, which encompassed over 400 databases. Lastly, the solution needed to minimize reliance on Database Administrators (DBAs), freeing up their time for more strategic tasks and reducing manual intervention in routine processes.

In its pursuit of excellence, Bank Leumi embarked on a meticulous decision-making journey, conducting thorough trials and consultations with multiple vendors. Amidst the myriad options, Accelario’s TDM solution emerged as the clear frontrunner, distinguished by its comprehensive automation capabilities, robust data anonymization, and proven ability to significantly reduce test data provisioning time.
