Currently using File-AID across our org. We're mostly using it for creating test data and compares.
  • Extract/load data from one DB or table to another masking the data for testing.
  • Compare extracts against each other to ensure good baselines.
  • I find it more obtuse to use than IBM Optim.
  • Related tables are difficult to incorporate.
It's pretty good at creating an extract of a whole table, but not the best at grabbing all related tables in my experience. Pretty intuitive on setting up your test data categories. I also really like that it can either run via ISPF or via Topaz which was included with our purchase.
Support has been amazing compared to Optim. Further, new features are very regular with File-AID - I can't remember the last time Optim had a significant update. File-AID support is very receptive to feature requests and reported bugs, including sending out hotfixes quickly.
