Accelerate delivery and improve agility
Increase test coverage and quality
Reduce costs and response times
Shift-left testing is an approach to software testing in which testing is performed earlier in the software development process. To test earlier, however, requires the earlier availability of realistic test data.
Shift-left testing is common in agile development and DevOps, where software development is decomposed to short-duration “sprints”. Each sprint requires its own testing cycles, and so, creating realistic test data often becomes a bottleneck – eating up the agile productivity gains.
Low-quality test data can cause unreliable test results and low test coverage. This often results in low-quality software delivery, costly rework, and undermined delivery credibility.
The solution is to shift test data provisioning to the left, in support of frequent, high-quality software releases.
Achieve Continuous Quality with Speed
Preparing quality test data has always been a challenge, especially with agile development. And with the growing popularity of the integration of multiple applications, the provisioning of valid test data has become even more complex.
The prime advantage of adopting a shift-left test data provisioning approach is increased efficiency, whose benefits include:
- Lower development costs
- Higher quality
- Faster delivery
- Easier app release
Make developers responsible for testing
Test Data Organizer addresses the test data challenges of shift-left testing by enabling developers and testers to provision test data based on a specific set of criteria. It then extracts data from production sources and loads it to the appropriate testing environments, with masking.
By preparing the test data requirements together with the test cases, and then provisioning the test data on demand, shifts testing as far to the left as possible.
