It only takes 1 or 2 people saying, ‘I don’t trust the data,’ to invalidate a report. That can tank a whole project.
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 data 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.
Therefore the testing process becomes a manual one, which increases the workload for testers and making it prone to mistakes.
The Solution: QuerySurge BI Tester add-on
QuerySurge’s BI Tester add-on provides a successful approach to solving the problem of testing the data embedded in these BI tools.
QuerySurge is a fully automated end-to-end solution for testing from data sources (databases, flat files, xml, Excel, json, etc.) through the Big Data lake to the Data Warehouse/Data Mart to the BI and Analytics reports.
