Data migration tests provide you with significant insight into how the changes that you make to decision logic affect the results of your strategies. To ensure that your simulations are reliable enough to help you make important business decisions, you can deploy a sample of your production data to a dedicated data migration test environment.
When you use Deployment Manager 4.8.x in data migration pipelines, you automate exporting data from the production environment and into the simulation environment. Data migration pipelines also require the following:
- Pega Platform 8.3.x or 8.4.x
- Decision management
- Pega Marketing
For more information about data migration pipelines, see these articles on Pega Community:
For information about using all the Deployment Manager 4.8.x features, see Configuring and running pipelines with Deployment Manager 4.8.x.
- Installing, updating, and configuring Deployment Manager 4.8.x for data migration pipelines
You can use Deployment Manager 4.6.x or later in data migration pipelines so that you can automatically export simulation data from a production system and import it into a simulation system. For more information about using Deployment Manager 4.8.x with data migration pipelines, see .
- Exporting and importing simulation data automatically with Deployment Manager
Create and run data migration pipelines in Deployment Manager 4.8.x to automatically export simulation data from a production environment into a simulation environment in which you can test simulation data. You can also use Deployment Manager to monitor and obtain information about your simulations, for example, by running diagnostics to ensure that your environment configurations are correct and by and viewing reports that display key performance indicators (KPIs).
