ETL Testing Services
ETL, which stands for Extract-Transform-Load is the process of data being loaded from a source system to the data warehouse of a company. In this age of Business Intelligence, such raw data is generated in copious amounts and within a very short time, which is then used for data mining activities, reporting and analysis, etc. ETL testing, also known as data warehousing testing, is a growing testing sub-segment today owing to the growth of IV & V testing services around the world. ETL testing services are ideal for portfolios that deal with a large amount of historical data such as banks and financial institutions, travel, etc.
When implementing an Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) system for business intelligence, the major risk lies in rushing a data warehouse into service without testing it thoroughly. Outsource2india's ETL testing process ensures that all your systems and data are tested systematically for bugs, errors, and vulnerabilities before the data is integrated and made available.
Our ETL Testing Services
Our highly talented team of software testers is well trained to work on different technologies and testing environments. Some of the key ETL testing services we provide include:
Source to Target Testing
This type of testing is carried out to check whether the data values which have been transformed are the expected data values or not. This ensures data compatibility and prevents any risk of data loss.
Production Validation Testing
This testing is done on data when it is being moved to the production systems. The data in the production system must be in correct order without which the whole process of transfer would become useless. Our services ensure that the data does not compromise the production systems' integrity.
Testing for Application Upgrades
Under this service, we check if the data extracted from the older repository or application is the same as the data present in the new application. These can be automatically generated hence saving considerable development time for your data warehouse developers.
A metadata repository containing all information about source, target, mappings, transformations, etc. is extremely important in ETL. InfiGrid's metadata testing involves data length check, testing data type, and index/constraint check, allowing you to maintain a steady control over your organization's overall information systems.
Data Completeness Testing
This testing aggregates actual data between the source and the target for columns with simple transformation or no transformation. This is done to check if all the expected data is loaded on to the target from source in a correct manner.
Data Accuracy Testing
This is a type of testing which ensures that the data is loaded correctly and transformed as expected. Our testers are experts at testing the accuracy and completeness of your data, and follow time-tested procedures in order to ensure complete data integrity.
Data Transformation Testing
In many cases data transformation cannot be done by writing just one SQL query and comparing the output with the target. In our transformation testing process, multiple SQL queries are written to run each row and verify the transformational rules.
Data Quality Testing
We provide data quality tests which include syntax and reference tests. This is done to avoid any kind of error caused due to different scenarios such as incorrect order numbers or dates during the business process.
We provide GUI/navigation testing support to check if the GUI aspects or navigation of the front end are functioning properly, and generate an exhaustive report for the same.
Incremental ETL Testing
We provide incremental ETL testing services to check the data integrity of new and old data with the addition of the new data. It also verifies that the updates and inserts are being processed as expected during the incremental ETL process.
Our ETL Testing Process
Our ETL testing process has been fine-tuned over the years in order to assure you of the highest quality data transformation. Our process includes -
Business and Requirement Identification
We understand the exact nature of your business and identify the various data sources which we need to work with
Test Estimation and Planning
We prepare a thorough test estimation based on the data we need to work with, and plan tests accordingly based on client input test estimation results
Test Case Design and Preparation
Based on all available inputs, we design the ideal test case scenarios by implementing business logic and dimensional modeling techniques
Once the test cases have been approved by the client, we perform a pre-execution check and prepare the data for testing in order to ensure all rules are adhered to
Bug Reporting and Execution
We execute the test until all exit criteria are met, report on the bugs generated, and move to remove them
Result Analysis and Summary Report Creation
We analyze the test results to ensure the completeness of the test rule, and then create a summary report which is provided to the client
Upon client verification, we proceed with test closure
