What's the Business Value of Service Virtualization?

With today's interconnected applications, a complete and realistic test environment is nearly impossible to stage. However, without reliable access to a complete and reliable test environment, testing is delayed or curtailed. The result is that organizations risk: Brand erosion as faulty software drives away customers Delays in time to market which diminish market share Exposure to legal liability associated with application failure (security, reliability, performance) That's where service virtualization comes into play. How Service Virtualization Helps Service Virtualization, wit... (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...
