Why should you consider a test database?
A test database is a mirror image of your agency's operating database.
If you are not already utilizing a test database, here are a few reasons why you should consider it:
Train new employees on the clients you currently support without affecting production data.
This creates a superior and more realistic training environment for both employees and their trainers.
Test and makes changes to reports without worrying about affecting reports or data already in use.
Any alterations to existing reports or data fields can impact reports in unexpected ways. Test these modifications on test data before rolling it to live data and reports.
Work with new versions of the software before releasing to users.
A test environment allows you to check out what's new and what's changed before updating your production environment.
Troubleshoot from a safe environment.
Investigate errors and test solutions without altering vital data.
Test integrations with other applications.
Are you linking Q to other software? Test updates and changes from other vendors linked to Q without affecting the production environment or data.
