COULD YOU BE MANAGING YOUR TEST DATA BETTER?

Conquering the task of Db2 z/OS test data management can seem formidable even to the most seasoned veteran. So we developed a complete guide, please click on the picture below.

Our guide for taking on test data separates the process into three manageable tasks:

• Isolate production from all other environments
• Refresh test beds with mass data
• Supply specific data for unit testing

This strategy covers the unique challenges of data provisioning for each task, how often the test data should be refreshed and offers a few new tools for your playbook.

Find out if your current strategy is up to the task!

IBM Champion, Gold Consultant, and author Craig Mullins recently reviewed our BCV5 copy tool on his blog and he had this to say….

“BCV5 copies Db2 for z/OS table spaces and indexes within the same Db2 subsystem or even between different Db2 subsystems much faster than unloading and reloading the data.”

“The most impressive aspect of BCV5 is its speed and efficiency.”
