Test Automation for Data-Centric Applications
Test automation, one of several key technical enablement practices, allows teams to be more successful in their agile journeys. Although there are many test practices and automation tools available for software development teams to leverage, few data-centric testing tools are targeted to data-related development and testing, leaving data warehousing and business intelligence teams thinking they can't possibly automate their tests. Cher Fox explores why test automation is important to agile data teams, discusses why they aren’t automating their tests today, and investigates the path to test automation. Cher brings these concepts to life through small-group exercises and a short demo. Leave knowing that a lack of vendor-supported tools is not the issue. If you roll up your sleeves and develop good testing practices and procedures, you can easily start automating those practices and procedures—using the tools and development languages that you already have.
