At Teknion, we’ve been working with a large worker’s compensation insurance agency that needed help migrating their systems from on-site infrastructure into the cloud. Interestingly, they’re also using one of our partner tools, Validatar, for data quality automation.
The insurance agency has used Validatar to set up automated testing jobs every time data is deployed to production. Additionally, with the use of template testing across their databases, they are reproducing tests at scale while using automation to run tests on a nightly/hourly schedule as new data is added to their systems. As a result, they have maintained data quality and have not experienced any production data errors in the last 120 days while using Validatar’s suite of tools.
