BI Validator makes use of our patented ELV Architecture to automate BI Testing. It supports extraction of reports and report metadata from Business Intelligence tools such as OBIEE, Tableau, Cognos and Business Objects. The reports are loaded into a repository (Oracle and PostgreSQL) so that validations can be run on it. BI Validator currently supports testing of applications build using the following Business Intelligence tools:
Tableau: Supports testing of Workbooks & Views deployed in Tableau Server.
Oracle Business Intelligence (OBIEE): Supports testing of Reports, Dashboards, Subject Areas, Web Catalog.
IBM Cognos: Supports testing of Cognos Reports.
SAP Business Objects: Supports testing of Web Intelligence Reports, Crystal Reports.
MicroStrategy: Supports testing of documents and reports.
By automating the BI Regression and Performance testing, BI Validator enables Continuous Integration for Business Intelligence application development.
BI Validator is tightly integrated with the BI tools making it easy to automate BI testing. It uses the BI tool metadata to completely eliminate the need for custom programming.
BI Validator supports testing of both report data and UI formatting. The differences are visually shown so that they can be easily spotted.
