Estuate was consulted for implementation of IBM Optim Test Data Management and Data Privacy Solutions at Alere. The requirement was to create training/test/demo environments for Alere applications and achieve considerable savings in database size compared to database cloning techniques. In addition, Estuate was also assigned responsibility of masking sensitive data from these applications so that only desensitized data was exposed for testing to vendor teams.
