COURSE OBJECTIVE

Successful Agile teams have learnt the importance of testing early and often. They are also recognising that data is the ‘glue’ that holds quality deliveries together. In order to perform comprehensive tests, there must also be trusted, high quality data that is as close to being available ‘on demand’ as possible.

 

About

BackgroundSuccessful Agile teams have learnt the importance of testing early and often. They are also recognising that data is the ‘glue’ that holds quality deliveries together. In order to perform comprehensive tests, there must also be trusted, high quality data that is as close to being available ‘on demand’ as possible.This workshop delivers a comprehensive insight into the world of data provisioning in a fast-paced, dy-namic development environment. Practices often focus on development strategy whilst overlooking the infrastructure needed to support the provision of quality test data. Developers with subsets for unit tests, and test teams working from shared spreadsheets, are no longer enough to support today’s security-conscious enterprises and complex matrix infrastructures.Using examples of best practice, this workshop offers practical support strategies for attendees to better understand what is needed to ‘Lead with Test Data Management.’Benefits of Attending:This workshop looks at the growing concern for Agile and complex development projects and programmes that are serious about the provisioning of strong, secure and usable distributive data. How will the roles of DBAs, testers and test data engineers evolve to increase overall quality, and reduce risk to the project and organisation? Learn about the warning signs so that you can avoid data provisioning failure and re-view solutions from some of the world’s largest Agile Quality implementations.

Learning Points:

  • Gain insight into the real world of Agile development from a testers and DBA’s point of view
  • Learn why test data is key to the success of any software deployment
  • Learn assessment techniques to determine if your team can provide the right test data
  • Learn how to influence a sense of collaboration between DBAs, testers and the development team
  • Learn how to track test data provisioning trends and when to adjust strategies
  • Review some real examples and the impact of the solutions
  • Review some of the tools available to help support unit test, continuous integrations, testing for functional, user acceptance and performance
  • Create a strategy to implement changes for a successful test data provisioning architecture
