Implement a logical time axis (logical business days)
Setting-up a powerful test data management requires to implement a logical time axis, holding the required business days. The days need to be dynamic as well: as time goes by, the 15th of a month will be the 15th of May, the 15th of June, etc.. Your automated test data generator needs to link to those dynamic dates.
According to Tricentis’ customer projects, more than 50% of core-banking use-cases require one or more previously run end-of-day procedures. The vast majority can be run on the same business day, but some require end-of-day or even end-of-month routines to happen on very specific dates. All in all, to comprehensively test a complex bank you will need 20+ logical business days to run through.

- The Excel list has more than one tab and offers following calculations:
- Logical business days
