We have just completed a new eBook on a very hot topic for anyone in the field of software quality assurance: How Test Data Generation (TDG) integrates with CI/CD pipelines and test automation tools to unlock the full potential of accelerated software development.
Achieving Test Automation Synergy provides a step-by-step look into the world of test automation and how QA professionals can maximize business value by integrating three essential technologies and following best practices.

Here is a summary of its contents:

Embracing Quality at Speed: Explains the industry trends driving the adoption of test automation with the latest market research data.

Thinking Differently About Test Data:Introduces a new way to think about test data as an intelligent, on-demand resource for test automation.

The Importance of Test Data Quality: Covers the many aspects of data quality that should be considered when provisioning test data for test automation.

Integrating TDG with CI/CD: Presents an architecture and a deployment model for continuous testing by establishing a fully integrated test automation environment.

Maximizing Test Automation ROI: Provides best practices and practical advice for maximizing your test automation Return on Investment (ROI).

Innovating Test Data Solutions: Covers a variety of test automation use cases that can be accelerated with the addition of real-time synthetic test data.

Realizing Operational Benefits: Summarizes the business impact and tangible operational benefits that are achievable with test automation synergy.

BEST PRACTICES

SOLUTION SPOTLIGHT

New Financial Services Case Study

We have prepared a new case study that features a real-world testing challenge confronting a global financial services company in banking, credit card, payment and loan services.

The Deposits Originations team was faced with a difficult challenge in testing the software used for account origination and deposit transactions across several product offerings. Each offering has multiple categories of input values and operational parameters.

The test data required for testing hundreds of combinations of potential data values for thousands of unique user accounts was daunting. The challenge was to reduce their test data provisioning time from between 2 to 30 days down to same day provisioning. At the same time, they needed high quality data for testing all permutations and edge cases while interfacing with 10 APIs used for data interchange. 100% data security was required for all test operations.

Download the case study presentation to learn more about how they met this challenge and successfully integrated test data provisioning with test automation tools and CI/CD pipelines.
