Test data provisioning for compliant database development


Published on

As database teams look to deliver more value to the business in shorter release cycles, having a robust strategy for managing test data is vital for success.

Many approaches to provisioning test data are not fit for purpose. They’re slow, fall short when it comes to giving developers realistic data to work with, and put the security of sensitive information at risk.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to implement a test data provisioning solution that accelerates your development cycles and meets the needs of data privacy regulations such as HIPAA, SOX and the GDPR.

You’ll also learn:
• How to refresh multiple development environments with new data in seconds
• The benefits of combining database virtualisation and masking
• The latest market analysis on Test Data Management from Bloor
