Sample, migrate, and test production data in a simulation environment (8.3)
Verify how the changes to your decision logic impact strategy results by running simulations on a production data sample. With this functionality, you can predict whether your application changes produce the expected results, without testing them on a live production environment. Based on that information, you can ensure that the decision process provides the next-best-action suggestions that fully reflect your customers' needs.
You can now migrate a sample of your production data to a dedicated simulation environment, and then run tests in Pega Customer Decision Hub™ or Pega Marketing™, before deploying the changes to the production environment. The sample data includes customer information, Adaptive Decision Manager data, and interaction history details.
The following examples show how you can configure data migration in Pega Platform™, and then run a simulation in Pega Marketing:
