What is test data ?

Test data is commonly used term to describe different types of data used to perform testing. In order to get an expected outcome – different data will be used to test the variation.  E.g for performing a “performance testing” – lots of data are required to ensure the response is within the expected time.

Why test data is important?

Importance of data can be understood by an example  - suppose you’re testing an application that calculate tax for different countries (an ERP product like SAP, Oracle, Dynamics , etc) and for different type of sales (services vs food vs luxury items) . In order to effectively test the business logic for different countries – a software tester needs to create a different variation of tests ( country , items, item types , etc) to ensure functionality of the software can be validated.
