Session: Enabling Reliable Testing through Test Data Management (TDM)
Presenter: Sumeet Mandloi
Test Data Management (TDM) is an emerging and specialized discipline within a QA organization that focuses on identifying, provisioning and maintaining test data in different environments. This provides an end-to-end solution to streamline and manage test data. A well implemented TDM strategy can rapidly reduce inefficiencies, help extract greater value from expensive data and make validated test data available in an organized, secure, consistent and controlled manner. By using the right test data and test data management strategy, QA teams can get one step closer to reliable testing. This session addresses the importance of test data management in today’s world, steps involved in the construction of a good test data management strategy, and the benefits associated with one.
Career spanning 16 years in Quality Assurance, Test Automation, Environment and Release Management with some of the big industry leaders such as UBS, Citibank, TD Ameritrade and Dow Jones where I was instrumental in building effective and efficient Quality organization. I have been focussed on driving the best results by creating various test automation and performance testing frameworks in improving the product quality, support faster time to market and create brand value. My goal is to bring quality to the forefront of product development and change the mindset to “Quality is everyone’s responsibility”. Also, move the quality organizations from Defect Detection to Defect Prevention or as some people call it “Shift Left”. My recent BDD (Behavior Driven Development) framework built using some open source technology such as Cucumber, Spec, Cucumber Unit, Ruby and Java helped Dow Jones being the finalist at the European testing awards 2016 in Best Test Automation category.
