In order to perform testing the right way, you need to automate. This is beyond just scripts that run, but building out the entire test landscape. With Next Gen Apps, the ability to spin up, load, test, and remove is key. Whether this is in the cloud or on premise, automating the creation of your test environments and data is critical to a successful DevOps implementation?

So what's involved : Cloud service provider (or on prem), a subset of production data that is protecting PII data, pipeline of tests, producing a record of those tests, and much much more.

Learning Objectives:
1) Discover how test data management plays a role in testing
2) Understand how and why test cases need to be managed
3) Learning the right way to test your Next Gen App.
