Test data management is a method used to create dummy datasets
and test a program or software on it before actually using that
software for the actual dataset of an organization. This method
is adopted in the testing phase to make sure that the software
can function efficiently on providing different sets of
Such data management services are specially offered by certain organizations and companies that work in the domain of Trial and testing. Such companies are referred to as data management service companies. These companies act as a middle man between the software manufacturers and the potential software users/ buyers and help to provide them with quality services.
TESTRIQ is one such company that offers testing services in a number of domains including data management services, load and performance testing etc.
It is the ideal type of data that would lead to the smooth functioning of the software, without any failures or errors.
It is the type of data that is not ideal for software to
function efficiently but it can still be used by the software
with minimum or no errors.
It is the type of data that is totally rejected by the
software, which raises a lot of failures or errors.
How Do We Test?
It is necessary to gather the correct type of data that can be tested on a particular software.
For the testing process to be accurate, it is necessary that the test data should be validated first.
A reusable dataset can ensure cost-effectiveness.
A number of activities required in the data management process like scripting, cloning, etc. can prove to be more successful due to automation.
