Test Scenarios for Data-centric Systems
Analysis and testing for data warehouse and business intelligence (BI) projects typically confirm that data was correctly mapped and can be accessed as intended. Such work is absolutely necessary, though not sufficient. Testing for data-centric systems also must prove that the data can be used as intended. Although behavior-modeling techniques that explore system usage aren’t typically part of business warehousing and BI toolkits, they are key to deployments that meet business expectations. Sue Burk shares her experiences in exploring business usage with use cases, scenarios, and user acceptance tests in support of data warehousing and BI analysis. Join Sue to learn how models that examine behavior can help you better specify tests for your data warehouse and BI projects. Find out how to reframe test objectives as business usage versus system usage to develop powerful insight into BI user and business needs.
