DataOps 'hot topics'

Automated testing:

With high data volumes, data workloads and a huge variety in data types, it's become increasingly difficult to perform data testing. Discover how automated testing can speed up time to delivery with fewer people and better data quality.

Data masking:

Lack of governance, poor security process and human error are major risk factors for data breaches. Learn how data masking keeps your non-production environments safe, whilst not hindering you from developing your applications and systems at speed.
