After having drawn a common view on the world of Data & Analytics by exploring the concepts of Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing and Data & Analytics, we’ll dive into testing and test processes, focussing on the specifications required when testing data and analytics solutions.
We’ll explore Risk Based Testing and the special skills that are required testers dealing with data and analytics.
We will tackle the concept of how to test reports and dashboards, completeness, data quality as well as testing business rules and ETL (extract-, transform and load).
We will explore differences between data & analytics testing and conventional testing, the specifics of Test Environments when dealing with Data & Analytics, Test Data, Ethics and Privacy Law (e.g. GDPR).
Participants learn how to apply Data Profiling in order to create better test cases and to cover the most relevant Data Quality attributes.
ExamThis training will prepare candidates for the DAU Certified Data & Analytics exam, which can be taken (online or paper based) through Brightest. One exam voucher is included.
This is an English spoken training, so general knowledge of business English is required. Testing knowledge or even certifications like ISTQB CTFL are not required, though they will make it easier for you to understand the testing approach and – designs. Knowledge of business intelligence and data warehouse concepts is welcome but not required as we’ll use the first hours of the training to get all attendants ‘on the same page’.
