Service Virtualization for Dummies—Enable Continuous Testing

The ability to rapidly release new product features is vital to the success of today's businesses. To accelerate development and software delivery, teams are adopting agile practices and leveraging service-oriented architectures to integrate legacy applications with other systems. At the same time, testing these composite applications can take longer and cost more. Al Wagner explains the whys and hows of service virtualization and shares ways testers can employ this technology to simulate parts of complex systems and begin testing earlier. Attend this session to gain insights on which services to virtualize in order to maximize your ROI. Discover how testing at the API layer can isolate defects for faster remediation and avoid late stage integration issues. Stop waiting until the complete application is available in a test environment to begin your work. Leave with an understanding of how virtual components can make incomplete or unavailable application functionality available for testing.
