Conformance testing verifies that a software product complies with a given standard or protocol. Testing focuses solely on adherence to the rules defined within the standard or protocol. The organization responsible for publishing and monitoring the standard may also provide guidelines or instructions for conformance testing.

The type of conformance tests required will depend on the nature of the standard, as well as the specifics of the associated rules and compliance criteria. For example, conformance testing for a data exchange standard may include verification of data formats, error handling for given scenarios covered under the standard, and may even include tests of data edits and validations used to collect the source data before exchange.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
