What is Kinesis CI?

Kinesis is a test framework that adds automated testing and continuous integration capability to your Tableau Server.

We produce quality automated testing tools for BI developers and analysts to save time and effort and reduce the high costs of repetitive manual testing, by shortening your BI development cycle and increasing reliability of your BI dashboards.

Kinesis CI is a highly modular and flexible tool to cover your BI testing needs from A to Z.

Regression Testing
  • Validate your dashboards on a continuous basis.
  • Test automatically after Tableau or server upgrades.
  • Ensure user requirements are met in terms of functionality and layout at all times.
  • Detect issues immediately and locate them more easily.
Functional Testing
  • Test every step in your BI workflow.
  • Validate data against expected results and calculations or directly against your underlying data source.
  • Simulate user journeys and clicks as well as interactions.
  • Integrate your tests with a CI pipeline and run after every change to validate your dashboards.
Cross Environment Testing
  • Test your dashboards across environments (i.e. development and production).
  • Ensure dashboards are fully validated before deployed to your prod environment for your business users.
  • Deploy fully tested dashboards automatically with Continuous Delivery.
Performance Testing
  • Drive load to your Tableau Server and measure response time against SLA requirements.
  • Determine capacity needs and accelerate long testing efforts for server upgrades and new releases.
  • Ensure SLA requirements are met at all times.

    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.
