As DB2 application complexity grows, and as the need to avoid application downtime and inefficiency reaches a critical level, the need for efficient application testing becomes evident. But today’s application developers often find themselves struggling to complete the level of testing required to ensure deployment of reliable, high-performing applications that meet usability standards. Application Developers and QA Personnel often attempt to use the same test data and then frequently find that the data has already been compromised or corrupted.
Running the right number of tests to properly verify all new SQL code or enhancements within increasingly compressed development and testing cycles has become a serious burden for DB2 Application Testers. Also, many companies are still using confidential production data for testing purposes - in spite of legislation that mandates removal of all information about real customers and employees from application testing environments.
What application developers and DBAs need is a comprehensive set of testing tools that:
- Enable shared testing of a common set of DB2 objects without impacting other tester’s results or other tester’s data.
- Enable developers to run more tests with smaller amounts of data.
- Eliminate confidential information from test data to ensure ongoing data privacy regulation compliance.
