✅ The following metrics provide crucial information on the effectiveness of your TDM strategies.

1. Is Enough Test Data Available? You can measure test data availability by tracking the time spent managing data for use in testing. If insufficient data is available, development time slows, and developers will feel constrained.

2. Is Test Data Available for Automated Testing? Automated testing processes require data on demand. Monitor the percentage of available data sets, plus the frequency they’re accessed and the frequency they’re refreshed.

3. Are the Automated Tests Limited by Testing Data? How many automated tests can you run with your current test data? If you need to run more tests than your data allows, you’ll need to gather test data more frequently. The easiest and most accurate way to obtain these measurements is with test data management software.
