OKLAHOMA CITY, June 1 TestData.com, LLC today announced the debut of
its online data generation tool at TestData.com. David Whitaker,
founder of TestData.com, launched the website after two years in
Data generation tools allow software developers to create large sets
of test data, which can then be used to stress test their
applications. The types of data created can range from simple address
lists to complex datasets modeled after database schemas.
Traditionally, these tools have existed in software form.
TestData.com is the first and only web-based tool of its kind.
"The launch of TestData.com marks a new age in data generation," says
Whitaker. "Since we are on the web, we can offer users a much less
expensive alternative to software-based data generation tools.
Previously, you would need to buy expensive standalone software to
generate your data. Now, you pay only for the data you need, which
for the vast majority of people amounts to saving hundreds of
Cost Benefits and Feature Set
TestData.com decided to bring the data generation market to the web
for a number of reasons. First, the least expensive standalone
software tool available was $600. TestData.com found that they could
offer a significant price advantage over these products by
establishing an average per-generation cost of $10.
Another benefit of TestData.com is its large collection of preset
data, which users can employ as building blocks to create their own
realistic-looking data. The website has hundreds of preset types to
choose from, including names, addresses, company names, zip codes,
objects, and more. "Because this data is stored on the website,"
Whitaker says, "we can build up a repository of data larger than any
software product can feasibly package onto CDs or DVDs, which means
your data will be more meaningful than any product on the market."
The website also offers users the ability to upload custom data for
use in their data generation projects.
