As a greater number of organizations are adopting “Big Data” as their Data Analytics solution, defining a robust testing strategy and setting up of an optimal test environment for Big Data is becoming quite a difficult challenge. Primary reason for this is the lack of knowledge and understanding on Big Data testing as the technology is still gaining popularity in the industry. Big Data involves processing of huge volume of structured/unstructured data across different nodes using languages such as “Hive”, “Map-reduce” and “Pig”. A robust testing strategy needs to be defined well in advance in order to ensure that the functional and non-functional requirements are met and that the data conforms to acceptable quality. In this blog we intend to define recommended test approaches in order to test “Hadoop” based applications.
