Enterprises running Oracle applications face the challenge of scaling to support a complex and growing environment. Often, two or more nonproduction systems are required for each production system to facilitate development, testing, and training. As production systems grow, so does the complexity of maintaining an efficient Oracle support environment.
Traditional system copy approaches, which have been the mainstay for data duplication, centre on making a complete copy of the production system, including its entire data repository as well as transactional data.
This process is very inefficient and expensive, both in terms of time and resources. Nonproduction systems also represent a significant data security problem. In today’s heightened
regulatory environment, auditors are now beginning to expose the risks associated with utilising
production data in test and development environments. As organisations gear up to be compliant with data privacy regulations, they are beginning to realise that protecting sensitive information, such as bank account information and even health data, across multiple applications and versions, not only requires deep knowledge across all applications, but is also time consuming and resource intensive.
Informatica Accelerators for Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft contain prebuilt definitions of business entities and assignment of data masking policies. The prebuilt data masking rules support common industry security regulations for PII, PHI and PCI data.
