What is the difference between data warehouse testing and conventional testing? In data warehouse testing what type of testing should we use (sanity, load, UAT)?

Evan Levy's Answer: Actually, traditional application testing doesn't look at both acceptance testing of an application and the data content. A data warehouse project must actually ensure that acceptance testing is executing against the data (loading, value accuracy, transformation, completeness, etc.) as well as the application functionality (reporting accuracy, display completeness, response time, etc.).
