Big Data and Quality

Ken Johnston, Microsoft Corporation

Big Data systems-those in which data sets grow so large that they become awkward to work with using traditional tools-are a huge problem for testers. To address the Big Data problem, testers must throw the traditional approach of creating and executing fixed test cases out the window. Ken Johnston and Reena Agarwal share how testing is changing and adapting within Microsoft on the Bing search platform and elsewhere. There, they are implementing sophisticated analysis techniques to validate system output and measure data quality. Join this leading edge session to learn what Big Data is all about and the technologies driving these new systems. Explore examples from different industries-including Big Data testing within Microsoft and Bing-and explore the new skills you and your team will need to test in the era of Big Data. When you hear about the petabytes, exabytes, zettabytes, or yottabytes of data coming your way, you’ll be ready.
