Quality and reliability of software applications has been very vital due to increase in applications complexity and scalability. However, it is challenging for Testers to deliver reliability. Test team not only have to follow proper test process and methodologies, but also ensure accuracy of test data. Testers also need to ensure that test data correctly reflects production environment, both functionally and technically.
A well documented Test Data Management (TDM) can help to increase efficiencies and provide greater values. These test datas can be made available with in organization in secure, organized, consistent and controlled manner.
By documenting right test data and test data management strategy, QA teams can get one step closer to reliable testing.
