Conformance Testing

Conformance testing verifies whether an implementation meets specified requirements. In our context, this means checking that structured data complies with the relevant standard or specification, including documented requirements.

Reliable processes, the result of comprehensive testing

The quality of data can only be assured through comprehensive and detailed testing. The attainable level of quality depends on the quality of the documented requirements that serves as the foundation for testing artifacts and how well those align with each other.

Typically, tools designed for testing structured data are suitable only for specific syntaxes (XML, EDIFACT, JSON, etc.), formats (UBL, HL7, ISO 20022, etc.), and use cases. As a result, companies often need to use multiple tools in parallel. Moreover, tools are usually limited to certain aspects, further increasing the need for parallel tools.

With Truugo, users can test various types of data in the same way, either as a manual self-service or through an API. The test configuration can include preprocessing of data, number of testing levels and phases (syntax, structure, content, business rules, dependency rules), and complimentary functions such as data visualization. Furthermore, testing has been made so easy that users with very diverse backgrounds can perform the testing.
