Test-Driven Data Management

Test-Driven Data Management

Test Data Management (TDM) best practices have remained largely static for some 30 years now, with new technologies building on the same broad approach. Yet QA teams today face increasingly stringent compliance requirements and are under pressure to test ever-more complex applications in shorter cycles. A new TDM methodology is needed now more than ever. This eBook provides a complete guide to Test-Driven Data Management. It begins by setting out the ten most pressing problems associated with typical TDM techniques, considering why TDM needs to go beyond just copying, subsetting and masking data. Part Two then makes the case for a new approach to TDM that is truly test-driven, suited to parallelised development and highly frequent application releases.
