Test Data and Test Environment 

Executive Overview

With the increasing adoption of Agile & DevOps practices, creation and maintenance of complex data sets in different test environments has become a challenging task. With TechArcis Test Data Management (TDM) and Test Environment Management (TEM) automation, enterprises can reduce build effort and errors, which will bring tangible benefits their way.

We can also help with service virtualization for effective creation and management of Test Data.  While reducing testing costs, we will facilitate faster disaster recovery along with easier management and deployment of test cases. TechArcis solutions help businesses deal with such complex and diverse data sets as well as high data volumes efficiently to ensure reliability and quality of their software applications.

TechArcis Offerings:

  • Automation of Test Data and Test Environment for testing
  • Testing effectiveness due to availability of accurate data
  • Test coverage due to better quality of test data
  • Risk mitigation due to decreased data exposure
  • Data privacy via data masking techniques
  • Compliance with regulatory guidelines and requirements such as HIPAA, SEPA, Basel, SOX, Solvency, PCI etc.
  • Post- build re-baseline testing of test environment to make sure new defects aren’t introduced

Service Introduction

Test Data Management (TDM) and Test Environment Management (TEM) are key pain areas for several organizations. As businesses are collecting an ever-increasing volume of data related to their daily operations and customer preferences, a growing emphasis is there to interpret, analyze and test such data with different groups and people within the business to know how it can be best used and shared.

With the increasing adoption of Agile & DevOps practices, creation and maintenance of complex data sets in different test environments has become a challenging task. With TDM and TEM services of TechArcis, businesses can now deal with such complex and diverse data sets as well as high data volumes efficiently to ensure reliability and quality of their software applications.

TechArcis TDM and TEM Services

Enterprises can achieve accurate test results only with consistent data sets that have a controlled variety of data instances, which in turn represent different real-life situations in the production environment. Unless they have predictable and well-organized test data sets and test data management tools, enterprises won’t be able to run an automated, repeatable testing process. With DevOps emphasizing testing the applications every time they are delivered (continuous integration and delivery), accessibility to good sets of new, refreshing test data has become essential for the very existence of DevOps.

With TDM offered by TechArcis, enterprises can enjoy improved:

  • Testing effectiveness due to availability of accurate data
  • Test coverage due to better quality of test data
  • Risk mitigation due to decreased data exposure
  • Data privacy via data masking techniques
  • Compliance with regulatory guidelines and requirements such as HIPAA, SEPA, Basel, SOX, Solvency, PCI and other standards.

In such a scenario, neglecting TDM can wreak havoc to enterprise testing and eventually, the product quality. Testing improvement programs will not bring adequate results if the test environment provisioning of an enterprise gets delayed. That’s where our TEM services can help. But if enterprises continue to neglect TEM that has now become an integral part of SDLC, they can face several issues such as:

  • Increasing costs of storage requirements triggered by fast expansion of big data, mobile and social media.
  • Increasing investment in the enterprise’s non-production (test) environment, which could have been used otherwise in critical business areas
  • Greater disruptive changes in organizations’ operational live production environment vs. non production (test) environment.
  • Not making accessible the correct test environment on time.
  • Inadequate test environment support to software testing teams.

TechArcis TDM Approach

Our Test Data Management Services are based on a four-stage approach:

Strategy and Plan: We help enterprises to

  • Review business requirements and application technology base
  • Identify impacted applications (both direct and indirect) and the related data sources
  • Review data requirements with the test team to execute all planned test cases

Maintenance: We help in

  • Test Data refresh and automation
  • Test data synchronization
  • Maintaining a collaborative, consistent and transparent communication platform
  • Test data archiving, removing unneeded test data and refreshing data as and when required

Implementation: With our help, enterprises can

  • Use a web-portal to share, access and re-use data linked to tests
  • Automate test data, where possible, via workflow technologies
  • Build framework and use the right tools to support test processes
  • Management of Processes, Standards, Test cases, Base data, Rules, Models

Cost Planning: We also help enterprises with the cost planning by letting them budget in advance and select tools and technologies that fit in their budget to implement a seamless TDM approach.

Client Testimonial

“We run a mission critical platform for financial industry, these are real time applications processing vast amounts of financial transactions. Before we found TechArcis, our testing was based on sample data. TechArcis solution enabled DevOps and also helped automate Test Data and Test Environment availability with production data. This has made our Continuous Integration, Development and Deployment program (CI/CD) take-off”

TechArcis Differentiators

With our TDM and TEM consultancy and implementation services, we can help you with:

  • Test data refreshing and refining
  • Building, refreshing and archiving data
  • Review of data issues, test result and completeness
  • Changes in documents necessary to test
  • Test Data Management system and making accessible required test data

In case of enterprise migration to the continuous delivery model, we can help with our TDM and TDM automation framework guidelines through a 5-step process:

  • Step-1: Forming a migration team, designing strategy and architecture, and setting timelines.
  • Step-2: TDM Audit, checking and reviewing standards and compliance, defining and documenting security policy.
  • Step-3: Defining and documenting strategy, validating strategy and strategy-based tool selection.
  • Step-4: Implement processes based on strategy, review and refine combination of tools and processes.
  • Step-5: Facilitate standardization across organization, implement update and maintenance strategy.

We believe that the fastest and most efficient way to attract an enterprise’s senior leader’s attention to Test Environment Management is test asset rationalization. We help businesses do this with testing support to their enterprise’s SDLC.  Another mechanism we use is lean process engineering that brings down the resource overheads and enhances the TEM team’s throughput.
