Recently at Informatica World, 2010 in Washington, DC, Richard Clark was a featured speaker during one of the general sessions. He was the former Counterterrorism Czar, serving multiple presidencies in the White House, working for the Pentagon and the Intelligence Community, and is currently the Chairman of Good Harbor Consulting Services, LLC – a 360° Security Risk Management firm. There was no one better suited to discuss corporate information security and risk management where the entire theme of the event was Beyond Boundaries.
I recently visited a client running multiple SAP applications with three non-production copies per environment – a separate copy for Test, Development, and Training. When asked what data they were using for the non-production copies, they stated they preferred to use data from production because they were guaranteed to have the latest, up to date information which should eliminate any testing issues associated with the data itself.
