Why choose Tonic over K2View

Maximize data science, minimize data preparation
Faster time to value

Offering streamlined implementation through a modern UI, Tonic requires far less upfront configuration than K2View, to get your team generating quality data—and results—faster. Bring lower environments up to speed with production in days rather than months, thanks to our native data modeling, and drive digital transformation.

Maximize data science, minimize data preparation
Lower cost of ownership

Not only is Tonic simpler to configure, it’s easier to maintain over time as your data needs evolve. Seamlessly add new data sources, account for schema changes, or update generator presets to manage enterprise-wide policies and shifts without overcomplicating the task of keeping environments fresh and in sync.

Protect sensitive and proprietary data
Powerful automations

Minimize subjectivity in your data strategy and security decisions with automations built to ensure policy enforcement, compliance, and efficiency. Where K2View requires defining sensitive data types in your unstructured data upfront, Tonic offers proprietary sensitivity scans and NER models to automatically detect PII in structured and unstructured data.

Integrate and manage LLM app deployments
Targeted test data capabilities

Thanks to our founding focus on generating quality test data, Tonic offers you the features you need, without selling you technology you won’t use. No feature bloat or superfluous workflows to click through here—just an intuitive UI and satisfying UX to make data transformation a breeze.

Built for speed
Tonic’s native data modeling enables you to work with your data in its native form, immediately connecting to your data and capturing its schema; its automated and customizable sensitivity scan and generator recommendations accelerate configuration for rapid data de-identification and generation.
Intuitive UI
As a modern data platform built in step with AI developments and with today’s developers in mind, Tonic is known for its ease of use, optimized workflows, and proactive R&D, readily evolving to meet the growing needs of our customers.
Pricing sized to your needs

Tonic features that outperform K2View
Native data modeling

Work with your data in its native form, from files to relational DBs to NoSQL, without having to answer ambiguous entity-modeling questions first.

Flexible product tiers

Get you the capabilities you need—and none of the tech you don’t—at a price that makes sense for your team.

Patented database subsetting

Our patented subsetter works across your database to shrink PBs down to fully representative GBs by way of custom WHERE clauses or simple percentages, easily previewed and managed by way of a user-friendly Graph View.

Proprietary NER models for unstructured data

Automatically detect sensitive data to ensure that it doesn't leak through, without needing to define PII in an entity model upfront.

Ephemeral databases on demand

Spin up and down fully hydrated test and development databases with built-in expiration timers.

Comprehensive, accessible documentation

Our documentation is structured around what you’re looking to achieve, rather than abstract feature names, making it easy to find the information you need.
