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)
You can't truly accelerate the SDLC without a dependable continuous testing
process. Evolving from automated to continuous testing requires on-demand
access to a complete, realistic test environment. Yet, such access can be
extremely difficult to achieve with today's increasingly complex and
interdependent applications. Consider these recent research findings from
On average, organizations require access to 33 systems for dev/test, but have
unrestricted access to only 18
Only 4% of participants report immediate, on-demand access to dev/test lab

Integrate Service Virtualization, API Testing and Test Lab Management
We're excited to announce Parasoft's latest release: a consolidated platform
uniting API testing, service virtualization, and test environment management.
The new release is designed to help organizations "shift left" the testing
effort and accelerate the SDLC to meet the growing time-to-market pressure
for software applications.
The ability to rapidly develop and continuously execute end-to-end tests-even
in complex or frequently-evolving environments-is essential to accelerating
application delivery while mi... (more)
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

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:
