BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE (BI) REPORT TESTING
Embedding intelligence into day-to-day business applications will empower employees to make the best decisions on behalf of companies when it counts.
Companies use Business Intelligence (BI) to improve decision making, cut costs and identify new business opportunities. CIOs are using BI to make strategic decisions in the hope of gaining a competitive advantage in a tough business landscape. But if their underlying data is bad, it will cause them to make decisions that will cost their firms millions of dollars.
The average organization loses $14.4 million dollars annually through poor data quality.
The Challenge Of Testing BI Systems
Testing BI systems is challenging. The typical approach is to verify calculations on the reports themselves to the data in the data mart/data warehouse. Many BI reports make use of Flash and other technologies that create problems for traditional test automation. The testing process becomes a manual one, which increases the workload for testers. making it prone to mistakes. And most BI tools manipulate the source data, which makes it even harder to manually test. Manual testing also is a slow and cumbersome approach, so each team either needs lots of testers to complete BI testing, or to only test a percentage of the data. Either choice is costly.
