Business moves fast—which means that software development teams need to move even faster. The emergence of new software development models, such as the agile development process and cloud testing environments and DevOps are driving a new era of computing.

To make the most of the new era of computing, organizations need effective and efficient testing strategies for continuous testing – complete with processes for governing test data.
