QA teams can spend upwards of 50% of their time preparing test data. Not only is data management tedious and time consuming, it’s error prone and a security risk when working with sensitive customer information like Social Security and account numbers. Also, linking data to tests is a lengthy manual effort and provides no visibility into requirements coverage.

What if you could cut your data prep time in half?

You can, with HP’s Test Data Management. Come see how HP TDM attacks this problem area by:

- Automating the extraction of production data by utilizing reusable extraction rules
- Editing and properly masking data
- Automatically populating target environments

Then see how HP TDM integrates with HP Quality Center and HP Performance Center to provide data-driven test execution and analysis, and industry-leading requirements coverage.

  • 1. Quicker time-to-test using HP's new Test Data Management Speaker: Durga Sammeta Speaker: Sr. Marketing Manager ©2010 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice
  • 2. Needs and Challenges Realistic data is needed to test multiple scenarios. Where is the data? In production or backup systems. NEEDS CHALLENGES — Access to meaningful — Limited or no access to data to test production systems — Extract relevant subset — Extracting subset of data of data and refresh from distributed databases is iteratively time consuming — Reduce security — Unauthorized users compliance violations accessing sensitive data puts business at risk — Reduce time to prepare test data — Unable to reuse data in different testing environments 2
  • 3. Did you know? How much time does IT spend on maintenance vs. innovation? Over 70% 3
  • 4. Did you know? If you spend $100 on 1TB storage disk, how much does it cost to maintain it? Over $700 4
  • 5. Did you know? If an outsider data theft costs around over $50,000, how much does the insider attack costs the company? Over $2.5 Million 5
  • 6. Research “With internal theft accounting for more than 70% of all data theft, test and development environments are often soft targets.” Forrester “An insider attack against a large company causes an average of $2.7 million US in damages, where the average outside attack costs only $57,000 (Almost 50 times as costly).” Ernst & Young “Administrative costs for 1 TB of storage are five to seven times higher than the storage costs.” Dataquest/Gartner 6
