Exploring Successful Approaches to Test Data Management

Report Author(s): Philip Howard


Test Data Management (TDM) is about the provisioning of data for non-production environments, especially for test purposes but also for development, training, quality assurance, demonstrations or other activities. Test data has always been required to support application development and other environments but, until the relatively recent advent of TDM, this has been achieved in an ad hoc manner rather than in any formalised or managed way. The predominant technique has been copying some production data or cloning entire production databases.
