A Best Practice Guide
Whitepaper OverviewDownload PDF Test Data Strategies For Application Testing – Best Practice Guide
A basic building block for a coherent strategy for software quality is the management of appropriate and accurate test data.
This whitepaper explores the key principals and techniques as they relate to the management of a test data environment for targeted data extraction, data de-sensitization, use of pair-wise optimized input scenarios, data synchronization with test scenarios, as well as simultaneous user interface and database validation.
Total testing enables a much wider view of what is important in software testing (beyond the user interface) and provides a strategy for real time saving and greater quality.
The best practice guide also examines strategies which have been used to improve both test efficiency and software quality for applications based on iSeries, Oracle and SQL Databases utilizing methods to create, manage and validate test databases.
The profile and significance of software quality has increased through commercial and compliance pressures driving the need for IT teams to simultaneously reduce risk and delivery timescales.
