Environment and Data Management
CPT has been involved in providing Test Environment Management and Data Management Services since 1993. Test Environment Management is the discipline of building and maintaining test infrastructure on which an organization can test software. The tests are performed in order to understand the functional behaviours and non-functional performance of the software under test. CPT’s comprehensive test environment management activities to date have been of varied complexity and with a variety of delivery outcomes across many of our key clients.
CPT’s Test Environment Management service centres on an independent, centralised team that have the responsibility as the Test Environment custodians responsible for:
- Setting and/or implementing test environment policy
- Entry/Exit criteria
- Ensuring the test environments readiness
- Coordinating test data refreshes
- Troubleshooting environment issues
