Achieve quantum improvement in data quality by attacking the problem at the source - thorough testing of data applications that create data
TestDrive is an automated testing framework created specifically for data intensive applications that reduces time, cost, and errors of manual testing
CHICAGO, Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Compact Solutions, the creators of the Compact Unified Enterprise Data Governance™ Framework, today launched a new automated solution for testing of data intensive batch applications that help complex enterprises reduce costs and errors that are the result of manual testing.
TestDrive expands Compact Solution's full suite of Data Governance Solutions, and offers a fully automated, repeatable and declarative method of validating and verifying that data processing applications work according to their specifications. Because TestDrive is completely technology agnostic, companies can utilize it regardless of their particular data storage and processing technologies.
"We built TestDrive based on decades of experience in building large data applications and solving data quality problems for some of the world's most complex enterprises. Most data quality problems arise from inadequate testing of data applications. Now, we are excited to offer the efficiency, reliability, repeatability, and agility that our customers need to dramatically improve data quality in their organizations," said Pankaj Agrawal, CEO of Compact Solutions.
How TestDrive Works
TestDrive is a complete and automated testing framework where enterprise organizations can design test cases, provide test data, specify expected results, run test scripts, report test status and manage all of the testing artifacts over time. Due to the automation, using TestDrive improves the efficiency of QA teams significantly, by making them more productive. TestDrive can be used to support all types of testing: Unit, System and Integration, Regression, and Performance testing.
Improve Your Overall Data Quality with Automated Testing
Poor data quality is most often a result of inadequately tested data applications. Data processing applications are often tested manually, which is error prone. Whether testing an ETL/ELT process or validating ETL coding standards, Compact Solution's goal is to improve data quality and reduce testing overhead. TestDrive is central to implementing an automated testing framework designed to replace manual process inefficiencies with the goal of dramatically improving your data quality.
Agile Development With Confidence
Most enterprises today have adopted an agile development methodology in order to be more responsive to rapidly changing business requirements. In the absence of an automated testing tool, agile development can lead to more data quality problems. TestDrive supports agile development by making it easier and faster to execute tests. By doing more tests more frequently, you can quickly develop and test new applications while retaining confidence in the quality of your data.
