Webinar: Get your ducks in a row - line up your environments and test data for continuous delivery


Hosted by Grid-Tools (now part of CA Technologies Inc.) and Forrester Research

30th June 2015: 4-5pm BST, 11-12pm EDT, 8-9am PDT

In this next webinar featuring Forrester Research we address the problems faced getting environments and test data to line up for continuous delivery. This is not just about delivering software faster, as is the current trend; with proper testing, continuous delivery also involves delivering better quality software.

Cloud technology and automated provisioning have made setting up environments and pre-production infrastructure quicker, cheaper and easier than ever before. However, providing testers and developers with up-to-date test data to match these changing environments remains a major problem. Teams are often provided with out-of-date production data, which cannot cover the majority of test cases that need to be run, leading to poor quality software, budget over-runs and project delays.

Grid-Tools and our guest Forrester Research will:

• Outline the issues faced when provisioning test data

• Look at the ways test data can be brought in line with instant environment provisioning

• Identify core technologies which might be used
