One of our regular major headaches on performance testing projects is test data. Either we can’t use production data because it is sensitive, or we don’t have enough data, or the test data we do have is not is the correct format for new version of the application we are testing.

StarBase consultants have access to the latest data generation tools that can solve these type of problems by:

  • obfuscating data whilst maintaining referential integrity
  • growing 100,000s of perfectly formed records from a small sample of real data
  • transforming data and building new fields on the fly

Using both our innovation and these tools, StarBase have been able to reduce near-impossible test data generation challenges down to a few days of consulting effort.
