Why is it significant to properly manage test environments? How should we do it? What are the best practices and strategies to use test environment management tools and services?
Test environment management strategy involves guiding and managing the test environment hardware, software, databases, applications, and test data. Slowed testing and inconsistent results are caused by poorly managed environments while problematic, testing issues are caused by inadequate test data management.
Most test environment issues can be boiled down by proper test environment management. In order to manage test environment efficiently, the following are necessary:
A dedicated Test Environment Management (TEM) team.
Defining the team terminology and sticking to it.
Creating an easily accessible knowledge base.
Defining the test environment strategy.
Improving efficiency and productivity in testing.
Test management tools that can assist the TEM.

Every organization should have well-organized and effective testing strategies in order to increase test efficiency and deliver high quality software. Test data is one of the most important factors in overall testing life cycle. Scenario-specific, realistic, right-sized, masked test data created in test environments ensures the following: - Scenario-specific test data availability before test execution increases test efficiency/quality and reduces overall testing cycle time. - Realistic test data in lower test regions reduces production defect leakages. - Right-sized test data in test environments reduces space utilization and increases the response time. - Masked test data ensures security compliance

When a legacy application is modernized, transaction flow may be changed to adjust to the standards and capabilities of the new platform. If tests are automated using a traditional testing tool, those user interface changes would require a significant amount of test maintenance to get tests running on the new platform. AscentialTest provides a short-cut by allowing users to develop tests against the legacy application as a baseline and then converting them to the new user interface. This whitepaper on “Testing Legacy Application Modernization,” highlights: High level overview of how tests are created in AscentialTest Ways to convert the legacy objects to the new platform Components of Object definition How to ensure that the modernized version of the application produces the same results
