An IBM Optim White Paper
Ensuring the accuracy, reliability and quality of your critical business applications has never been more important. Why? Because companies across industries depend on mission-critical enterprise applications to drive their business initiatives. In turn, those applications rely on relational databases to store and manage the underlying enterprise data. The ability to enhance, maintain, customize and upgrade those sophisticated applications is critical for achieving long-term business goals. Companies are striving to speed the deployment of reliable, high-quality applications, while staying within tight IT budgets.
Now, more than ever, companies face new challenges when designing effective and efficient testing strategies for enterprise applications. Incomplete or flawed test data means inaccurate testing, which can lead to application failure and business disruption. More common approaches to building test environments include cloning application production environments and writing custom extract programs. However, those methods can be labor intensive, error prone and costly. No company wants to risk losing customers, market share, brand equity or revenue by delivering applications that have not been thoroughly tested. For this reason, end-to-end application testing is a strategic priority throughout the application development life cycle.
So, how can IT organizations improve testing efficiencies and reduce the total cost of owning and maintaining enterprise applications? This white paper examines how proven test data management capabilities can help you deliver reliable applications and achieve maximum business value from your application investment.
