Anybody who has ever been involved in software development knows that creating applications requires test data. Without the data to test your programs against, there is no way to ensure that the programs are doing what you want them to do.
Managing it can consume a lot of time and effort. Supporting multiple programmers, multiple database environments, and making sure you have sufficient test cases is easier said than done. We’re not just talking about developing new applications, but also modifying existing ones!
In this webinar we will look at the trends impacting application development and testing, including automation, shift-left testing, agile development, and DevOps. We will discuss the impact of these trends and how all of them drive up the speed and complexity of creating and testing applications. We’ll define the components and requirements of test data management and examine the pitfalls that can lead test data management becoming a bottleneck, slowing down your developers.
Along the way, we will take a look at the policies and regulations that protect sensitive data. Compliance with these regulations means that you can’t just use production data without taking into account personally identifiable data, healthcare data, and other types of sensitive data that developers should not see.
Register for this webinar with IBM gold consultant Craig Mullins as he discusses the issues and requirements of data management and how UBS Hainer’s XDM solution can be used to streamline and optimize your test data management efforts.
