What is Service Virtualization?
To achieve "quality @ speed", it's essential to have unrestrained access to a
trustworthy and realistic test environment. It is important to recognize that
a complete test environment includes the application under test (AUT) and all
of its dependent components (e.g., APIs, 3rd-party services, databases,
applications, and other endpoints).
Service virtualization is an emerging technology that provides DevTest teams
access to a complete test environment by simulating the dependent components
that are beyond your control, still evolving, or too complex to configure in
a test lab. Service virtualization is commonly used when dependent components
connected to the AUT are:
Not yet completed or still evolving Controlled by a 3rd party or partner
Available for testing only in limited capacity or at inconvenient times
Difficult to provision o... (more)
For Valentine's Day, here's a lighthearted look at the "relationship" between
two complementary technologies: service virtualization and cloud dev/test
Dear Service Virtualization,
Hey, I know it's been a while since we started being "a thing." When we met,
everyone said you were just mocking, and that I wasn't real enough to make a
living, with my head in the clouds. Yet, here we are, a few years later.
Service Virtualization, you complete me.
As a young Dev/Test Cloud, I always wanted to try new things. And what better
use for Cloud than experimenting with software for st... (more)
Explore the 10 most popular continuous testing resources of 2015, including
Forrester and Gartner research, interviews, infographics, an ebook, and more.
With today's DevOps and "Continuous Everything" initiatives, teams need the
ability to assess the risks associated with a release candidate-instantly and
continuously. Maybe that's why 2015 seemed to be all about Continuous
Testing, from conferences, to analyst research, to the blogosphere.
Here's a look at what Continuous Testing articles from the Parasoft Resource
Center piqued the most interest in 2015:

To reduce the risk of business interruption in today's interconnected
systems, organizations need to test across a complex set of applications,
such as SAP, mainframes, third-party services, etc.. However, such systems
are extraordinarily difficult to access for the purpose of testing. Service
Virtualization provides simulated test environments that eliminate these
constraints- enabling organizations to test earlier, faster, and more
completely. Here are 10 specific reasons to be thankful for service
10. Dev.QA control over the test environment inclusive of de... (more)
Software is increasingly critical to an organization's competitiveness, but
the applications being developed consistently meet business stakeholder
expectations only 17% of the time. What's the problem...and what's the secret
to ensuring that expectations are met?
Parasoft—industry leader in Service Virtualization, API Testing, and
Development Testing—prepared the following Infographic to expose the gap
between business expectation and technical implememtation. The infographic
also introduces Parasoft PIE: a groundbreaking new technology that helps
organizations close that gap,... (more)
