Reduce Wait Time with Simulation + Test Data Management
Data has become the most significant roadblock that testers face today. In fact, up to 60% of a tester’s time is spent waiting for data. Chris Colosimo shows that many factors contribute to this wait time, including internal requirements from the test data management team to pull data in the proper form, wait times for sanitized or “test-safe” data, or, most importantly, building data sets that do not exist. Compounding these challenges is the inherit complexity of today’s data. You have to be a DBA to even begin to understand the structure and relationships needed to support your testing. There has to be a better way! Learn how to solve these challenges by providing a self-service method where users can model and repurpose their data on demand. Discover how to use a test data assistant automation to capture, model, and generate data for efficient use in API tests and virtual services. Take away a method to capture existing database transactions and store them in a repository, model the underlying data structure and define data relationships to maintain data integrity.
