What is CP-TDM?
CP-TDM stands for “Certified Professional –Test Data Management”.
The course is applicable for all roles and not just “testers”. Knowledge, experience & certification is consciously designed to focus on services and all aspects of TDM (Data Profiling, Analysis, data generation, data sub setting, and data Masking).
How is it useful?
Challenges like unavailability of test data, Poor Data quality, data storage are pretty much common across all projects. Lack of Test data results into challenges of test execution for key test scenarios. Regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, an understanding of PII (Personally identifiable information) and its protection, are today’s imminent needs.
This course introduces participants to the principles of test data management including recap of database and warehouse concepts. It starts with the need of test data, planning for test data, analysis of available data for different types of testing vis a vis available test environment. Participants are then introduced to data generation, masking, anonymization, profiling, sub-setting in depth to understand its significance and details.
The course emphasizes on practical implementation. It will help to understand real world problems and find their optimum solutions. There will be dedicated hands on lab exercises on any one TDM Tool for Data masking, Data Generation, sub setting. Candidates will be able to design a Test data approach and implement TDM solutions at an enterprise level.
With the case studies, we will explain in a real-life project scenario, how to analyze a given TDM case/ problem, decide the possible TDM solution/s (masking/ generation or other based on type of requirement), estimate efforts, designing and executing the planned solution.
