Just as a high-performance engine needs the right fuel, your testing team rely heavily on high-quality test data to ensure success. Unfortunately, test data management is an enormous and time-consuming task for many organizations. Enterprise landscapes are highly complex and interrelated. To get good data, referential and logical integrity must be preserved, and not all relationships are explicit. That complexity, combined with the fact that there are often multiple, massive data stores with multiple formats, makes extraction an intricate task at best. Further complicating the process is the passage of time. Your data never sleeps. Values change with operations and with the clock. Rules change with revised requirements and new configurations. Test data that was valid last week—or even earlier today—may be invalid now. Gathering test data has historically been a manual and labor-intensive task requiring the involvement of many outside resources including IT, security personnel, business analysts and subject matter experts. Test data management is a recurring task, the costs for which are often hidden. In fact, for many organizations, up to 60% of ongoing testing effort is spent finding and extracting representative test data. Certify Data is an innovative solution designed to automatically identify and extract representative SAP data so that it can be directly embedded into Worksoft Certify test processes as the test steps are constructed. Certify Data can then maintain test data in existing tests by performing managed data updates.
