Proteros Data System’s Frurion™ card-payment product suite provides a number of tools that are used to prepare test data and provide simulations of card-payment authorisation transactions and settlement files. The Frurion™ Data File Generator is used to create test data to any flat-file definition, particularly settlement files in card-payment testing and can be used in conjunction with the Frurion™ Excel Interface.
Once the structures have been defined the files can be populated with test data from a variety of sources including Excel spreadsheets and XML structures. Using Proteros’s transformation tools to define the relationships between source and target fields the population of the file happens automatically.
However, the uses for the Data File Generator do not stop at generating test data. Its powerful engine can be scaled up to take in large live data volumes. It can be run either through its UI interface or scheduled to run overnight in batch mode.
