The Data Sync Manager Product suite (DSM) from EPI-USE Labs is composed of Object Sync, Data Secure, Client Sync and System Builder modules. Data Sync Manager is based on EPI-USE Labs unique intellectual property that defines the SAP business object model in a central metadata repository for over 1,500 SAP business processes.
‘Object Sync’ enables business analysts to provision test data directly from a production system to a test system while masking within seconds and maintains the integrity of the complex SAP data model. “Object Sync does not require system refresh as the ongoing method can be automated by API. Moreover, clients can even copy data, apply changes, and compare results,” affirms Phillip Stofberg, CEO of EPI-USE Labs.
‘Client Sync’ enables infrastructure teams to provision a new Quality Assurance (QA) system or refresh that system directly from Production by only copying a subset of the historical transaction data. It does so in a consistent way and delivers quality test data to the target system in record time.
‘Data Secure’, another component of the product suite, allows cross system data masking of the SAP test data, in addition to dynamically masking data provisioned on-demand with ‘Object Sync’.
The solutions provided by EPI-USE Labs are based on a single code-base to ensure clients have effortless service and are implemented in partnership with distinguished firms like Edenhouse, Intelligence, and Winterhawk Consulting. “We differentiate from our competitors for shipping content to the client in an automated manner, integrating all business object definitions across systems with SAP objects defined in them,” says Stofberg.
The firm’s DSM solutions were put to use by a large telecommunication company to apply SAP support packages into their production landscape. Previously, the telecommunication firm took three months to perform regression testing and had to run manual test scripts. With EPI-USE Labs’ software the firm could copy data, apply changes, run processes simultaneously on two systems and even compare results within a single day-span. This automated solution saved the firm huge time and expense.

The firm offers ‘Testing-as–a– Service’ and ‘Sync-to-the-Cloud’ solutions for more flexible test data management and higher ROI. “We desire to move beyond SAP, and expand software solutions into application management service space enabling automation into Intellectual Property (IP) testing,” concludes Stofberg in explaining the future direction.
