Telecommunication companies emphasize the software development and testing processes of their customer relationship management solutions. The testing part of the process is critical in terms of quality, and doing it efficiently requires time- and money investment. Testing processes often deal with test customers already in the system, but the process of putting these customers in the system extends the time needed to perform tests. The automated creation of test data could mean decreased time- and money investment if done efficiently.
