Data Integrity Definition- How To Enforce It In Databases

August 30 2018, 12:16pm

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Enforcing Data Integrity Into Databases

Database Integrity is a central underlying aspect or term in the implementation of database technology. Having faith in the data correctness is a prerequisite for using the data in business, research or decision-making applications. So it’s for sure that the factors of ensuring database security and reliability cannot be ignored. One also has to consider the use of error checking and correction codes to deal with the integrity issues and improve the performance of database systems.

Enforcing Data Integrity in Databases

Basically, there are four primary types of data integrity: entity, domain, referential and user-defined.

1. Entity Integrity ensures a table does not have any duplicate rows and is uniquely identified.

2. Domain Integrity requires that a set of data values fall within a specific range (domain) in order to be valid.

3. Referential Integrity is concerned with keeping the relationships between tables synchronized.

test automation benefits

Many organizations consider automation testing as a vital step in establishing a mature Q&A program. But, manual testing can never be ruled out completely.

Automation Testing Improves Business Results In Three Ways:

Shorter Time To Market, Increased Test Efficiency And Increased Test Effectiveness.

Testing efficiency is the average number of test cases you can run for an hour of tester time. High efficiency of testing reduces product development time and costs.

Testing effectiveness is rate at which testing reveals bugs before your application are released in the market. Increased effectiveness reduces the costs through a better product.

Application must be tested before release and reducing your time to market for benefits. Manual testing replacing with automated testing can cut time from elapsed testing time.

ROI Formula:

The ROI for test automation can move into positive zone depending upon the number of regression cycles required for the lifetime of the application.

ROI for test automation can be simply calculated by the below formula:

Return of Investment(ROI) = (Manual testing cost — Automation cost)/Automation cost

why we need test automation 

The simplistic answer for this is to get maximum efficiency and to utilize the resources in a complete way. Let us first discuss why we automate our software product.

Automation Testing is necessary to save the rework in regression testing and for saving the time to fill multiple page lengthy forms.

By automating our products we can be assure of its already fixed functionality and also merge modules to skip the execution time of a process.

While planning for automation of a software product, its framework design is as necessary as while building a shopping mall its blue print is necessary.

Framework design needs to collect and specify all the requirements that are mandatory for automating a software product. The requirements should be analyzed and freeze on the basis of their feasibility.

There may be possibility that some of the requirement cannot be automated and no framework can be created for these requirements.

Effective Ways To Face User Acceptance Testing Challenges


UAT is a condemnatory component of any Software application.  Its a  Polished way to examine the user needs and demands.  If an application is developed as per all the induced and documented business requirements, then there is only one tread left before delivering the software/application i.e. User acceptance Testing.

Once it is completed successfully, then the tester will inform the development teams about the risks and undefended gaps. If UAT is not done properly then the defects become more expensive to fix. 

Effective ways and resolutions to overcome these challenges:

Choose equitable resources: Hire a well versed professional UAT testing team with the domain expertise knowledge to perform UAT. Since the UAT team is more technical, a whole team should be assigned to perform UAT before the release of application.

Create comprehensive UAT plan: Create a customize and detailed plan as per the business requirements and follow a scenario checklist to validate if the right plan is being executed and perform preparation evaluation to verify if we have done everything right.

    Installation Testing Service Provider

    The reason why it is considered to be the most important type of testing in the software life cycle is that the installation process is the first interaction between the user and the software, which simple means that the process should be satisfactory. Successful installation process leads to happy customers which further increases the software installation rate and its success rate.

    When do we perform Installation Testing?

    • Software version has been upgraded or downgraded
    • Re-installed an application to remove the encountered problems
    • A new application is launched that is related to a family of applications

    Types of Installation   

    Clean: This is the installation where the application is being installed for the first time and old version has never been installed on the system before.

    Silent: This type of installation shows no messages on console during its installation process. Messages related to installation get saved in a log file.
