Presentation in English

In many cases people say that Rome wasn’t built in a day! But nowadays we want a continuous delivery of software. With DevOps we are trying  to build ‘Rome’ every day , but still we aren’t able to control everything... yet. Today more organizations start automating their test, focusing on continuous integration and delivery,  and start to think about agile teams with multidiscipline members. But we still haven’t gotten control of our test data!

No control means we don’t know if a bug or fault is related to the data or the code… So how can we build Rome? If we start the build process, maybe we start building Stockholm, Amsterdam or maybe even Aarhus?

But Imagine if we are in control of the Test Data? What impact this would have? This would be enormous. You are finally able to control the build pipeline, the test reports show real software quality bugs or improvements.

During this presentation we want to show you what happens when you are in control of your test data! How you get control of your test data and how you are able to automate it.

So you can build Rome in a day!

3 key takeways:

  • The impact of having control of your test data is crucial for faster software development
  • Getting control of the build process of software
  • How test data can be managed by the software quality and dev teams.




Maarten Urbach has been working in the test data management area for more than 7 years. He has helped out large organizations solving their test data management bottleneck for improving their software quality. From insurance companies to governmental institutions, Maarten Urbach has experienced many complex IT organizations.

Today he talks at several software conferences and shares his experiences over the last couple of years. What are the best practices and how can you solve the tdm bottleneck?
