Discover Automated Test Data
Each time a tester or developer today needs new data, they must complete the world’s hardest jigsaw puzzle. They hunt slowly for the interrelated data needed to fulfil diverse test scenarios, searching across systems ranging from mainframes to microservices. The intricate data must align perfectly and fulfil every test scenario, as otherwise tests fail when there is no bug, and data undermines test coverage. The complex data should furthermore contain no commercially or personally sensitive data, which should be kept away from less-secure test environments.
To achieve true agility and quality at speed, a new and automated approach is needed to finding and making data during testing, development and CI/CD.
This webinar will set out a strategy for moving from manual data lookups to on-the-fly data allocation. You will see how techniques used today for finding data can be standardised and automated, rapidly building a catalogue of reusable data “finds”. Manual or automated tests can then parameterise and reuse these automated finds whenever they need data, with integrated data generation to create missing combinations on-the-fly. The result? Complete, consistent, and compliant data is allocated automatically to parallel testers, developers and frameworks, saving the time that’s too often lost manually finding and making complex data.
