Big Data Testing

The collaborative automated Data Testing solution for Hadoop and NoSQL stores

The Quality Issue

Big Data is growing at a rapid pace. According to IBM, 90% of the world’s data has been created in the past 2 years. And with Big Data comes bad data.

  • Analyst firm Gartner says the average organization loses $14.2 million annually through poor Data Quality.
  • Experian Data Quality report states 99% of organizations have a data quality strategy in place.

This is disturbing in that these Data Quality practices are not finding the bad data that exists in their Big Data.

“70% of enterprises have either deployed or are planning to deploy big data projects and programs this year”

– Analyst firm IDG

“75% of businesses are wasting 14% of revenue due to poor data quality”

– Experian Data Quality

“19.2% of big data app developers say quality of data is the biggest problem they consistently face.”

– Evans Data Corporation

“Data quality costs (companies) an estimated $14.2 million annually”

– Gartner

Current Data Quality & Testing Trends in Big Data

According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant on Data Quality Tools, characteristics of these tools are: profiling, parsing cleansing, masking, matching, and monitoring of big data. None these characteristics deal with data validation in your Big Data store.

Big Data testing is completely different. The primary goals of data testing your Big Data are verifying data completeness, ensure data transformation, ensure data quality, automate the regression testing. But the 2 main methods, Sampling (also known as “stare and compare”) and Minus Queries, have major flaws.
