Test Driven Business Intelligence

Testing Should be Part of Your BI Software Development Lifecycle

...

Modern software development requires automated testing

In most areas of software development, adopting CI and other agile methodologies have changed the way people test. Development teams are required to do more testing, faster and more often.

Testing is done earlier in the development lifecycle and the focus is on automated testing as developers try to move away from manual testing.

...

Business Intelligence testing creates unique challenges

Testing Data Warehouse/Business Intelligence (DW/BI) applications is different from testing traditional transactional applications as it requires data-centric testing approach and you need to work with third party BI tools. The volume, variety and complexity of the data make it difficult to create robust test cases and specialized skills are required to execute data validation and verification process.

Testing is done earlier in the development lifecycle and the focus is on automated testing as developers try to move away from manual testing.
