Test Data Management

The Challenges
Test Data Management is a strategy for organizations to manage their test and development processes to meet application development and testing requirements, streamline cloning processes and secure data so organizations are equipped to deliver the clones needed to meet upgrade and patch cycles and maintain data security.

Robust Test Data Management processes are critical to maintaining applications and databases, but creating the necessary clones is a labor intensive activity for any IT department. Multiple clones must be configured and managed across applications, databases, servers, and storage devices, all the while exposing sensitive customer data to potential leaks. With identity theft a growing concern among consumers, regulators and law makers, a strategic approach to test data management is needed.

Test data Management can be optimized by:

  • Automating the cloning process
  • Ensuring sensitive data is not exposed during test and development
  • Actively monitoring the database cloning process to ensure only valid clones are being created
  • Deploying data masking while maintaining referential integrity needed for testing
  • Data Subseting where appropriate
