Test data Provisioning
What to do when your test data is too time consuming?
Data Provisioning Resources
The concept of data subsetting is surprisingly simple: take a consistent part of a database and transfer it to another database. That’s all. Of course, the actual data subsetting isn’t that simple.
Subsetting is copying a part of the data from one database (source) in to another (target). Therefore, you need a source to provide the data (typically a production database). The target is typically a dev or test environment.
The impact of having a full copy of anonymized production data on Continuous Testing is no different whether tests are automated or performed manually. It’s a discussion about representativeness and speed.
