Testing the Data Warehouse Practicum
Assuring Data Content, Data Structures and Quality
By Doug Vucevic & Wayne Yaddow
The quality of a data warehouse (DWH) is the elusive aspect of it, not because it is hard to achieve [once we agree what it is], but because it is difficult to describe.
In Testing the Data Warehouse Practicum, authors Doug Vucevic & Wayne Yaddow propose the notion that quality is not an attribute or a feature that a product has to possess, but rather a relationship between that product and each and every stakeholder.
This book consolidates the best ideas and processes for testing data warehouses into one guide. You will find that it provides a meaningful tutorial offering practical solutions for the complex task of verifying data during each phase of development of all types of data warehouses.
Learn how to plan your tests, use data mapping documents, profile data, use checklists and queries to impressively improve data quality and the overall excellence of your data warehouse. By the end of Testing the Data Warehouse Practicum, you will not only be able to lead the warehouse testing effort, but guide others in doing the same.
