Test Data Management
It is the goal of Test Data Management (TDM) to systematize
the generation — and improve the quality, safety, and
utility — of test data. TDM has become an IT imperative.
Table views, index orders, key relationships, and file and
report contents, must reflect reality to be useful in
testing. Generating realistic values and formats with safe
data in ideal ranges -- and populating large targets -- can
take a long time with other tools or programs. To gain a
competitive edge, look for a TDM solution which will help
you can generate multiple test data targets for test
database loads, flat-file structures, and custom report
formats from scratch -- all without access to real data.
Many firms are leveraging TDM to anonymize, subset, or
otherwise mask real data for production or on-demand or
virtualized testing scenarios. Having a viable,
well-reviewed TDM strategy is the best way to assure that
the most realistic test data will be on hand. Outlook

Micro Focus - Agile Enterprise
To become an agile enterprise, enterprise architects,
portfolio managers, and other executives must gain insight
into the status of each application in their portfolio, so
they can make effective resource and investment decisions.
And when a business decision is made, it must be pushed down
into the application teams for implementation and tracked
across its lifecycle, from its origins in strategy, through
development, and into deployment and production. But each
team is unique. Each may choose its own development
methodology, application lifecycle management tools, and
metrics to track. Some are moving to DevOps to increase
agility. As a result, the information that feeds business
decisions is difficult to obtain and is inconsistent across
teams. Outlook Series' Michael Lippis interviews Victoria
