Let's be honest. The papers and articles from leading service virtualization vendors (us included) are using so many of the same terms and catch phrases that it's becoming difficult to distinguish one service virtualization solution from the other—that is, until you're actually hands on with the service virtualization technology deployed in your unique environment. If we can't escape it, we might as well have some fun with it . . . join us for a round of Service Virtualization Lingo Bingo!

Case Study: Service Virtualization in a VMware Environment

One of the New Zealand government’s largest departments is migrating its software testing platform from the physical world to the virtual world, empowering its development teams to create and launch new testing environments in minutes. This revolution enables testing to commence at a much earlier stage and allows multiple projects to be tested in parallel. Not only does this reduce the time taken to complete projects, it also significantly improves both their quality and reliability. The government agency has over 1000 employees spread across multiple offices throughout New Zeal... (more)

Service Virtualization Case Study: Testing Faster and Earlier

To accelerate application release cycles, KPN needed to address a critical bottleneck in the testing process. Their end-to-end test scenarios interacted with dependencies controlled by other divisions and external entities, and gaining access to the required dependencies was a slow and frustrating process. Due to these test environment access constraints, testing efforts were regularly delayed and cut short. “Using Parasoft Service Virtualization to simulate the behavior of these dependencies, KPN can now test earlier, faster, and more completely—accelerating time to market whil...
