You want to get/set by an ID?
angular.module('app').factory('testFactory', function () {
    var data = {};
    var getData = function(id){
        return data[id];
    var setData = function(id, value){
        data[id] = value;

    return {
        getData: getData,
        setData: setData

Open in new window

testFactory.setData('123', { firstName: 'Alexandre', lastName: 'Simoes' });

So how would I set these values?

Key                          Value
name                   Simoes
name                     Smith

testFactory.setData( name: 'Simoes' );

testFactory.setData( name: 'Smith' );
