Challenges Faced by Enterprises in IT & Test Environments and Test Data Operations

Enterprises often encounter several challenges in their IT and test environments and test data operations. Here are some common challenges faced in these areas:

On average, IT projects spend 95% of their lifetime in non-production, test, and space environments during software development and testing.

Organizations spend over 55% of their infrastructure, license, and service budget on non-production. Test environments that need maintenance to meet software testing needs.

Delivery delays of over 20% are typical due to IT and Test Environment Management inefficiencies and test bed disruptions that restrict the software delivery process.

According to Gartner, 70% is the estimated percentage of internal security and data privacy breaches within our test bed or test environments.

Addressing these challenges requires a combination of effective processes, automation, standardized tools, and collaboration among various teams involved in IT and test environments.
