The Challenge of Testing Business Intelligence Reports

The use of Business Intelligence (BI) & Analytics is growing rapidly. But the validation and testing of data in these systems is challenging. The typical approach is to validate calculations on the reports to the data in the data store. Many BI reports make use of Flash and other technologies that create problems for traditional test automation. And most BI tools manipulate the source data, which makes it even harder to manually test.

So the testing process becomes a manual one, which increases the workload for testers and making it prone to mistakes.
