Patented ELV Architecture

BI Testing Tool Architecture

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.
