Broadcom Service Virtualization Review

QA can start automating from the beginning and developers can do unit testing faster. Integration with Selenium and GUI testing needs improvement.


What is most valuable?

  • MQ virtualisation
  • Web service virtualisation

How has it helped my organization?

Time-to-market has been a lot easier and quicker. QA can start automating from the beginning and developers can do unit testing faster. Third-party integration is not required so you save money by virtualizing third-party services.

What needs improvement?

Integration with Selenium and GUI testing needs improvement. Supporting more new technologies and existing technologies such as Flex, Salesforce, etc. would also be nice.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There were problems where it doesn't support the technology. We have to write custom functions ourselves. This means our licensing cost is more higher and makes it harder to sell our products to small vendors.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues scaling the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is good.

Technical Support:

Technical support is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with SoapUI Pro, HP ServiceTest (now UFT), IBM RIT, etc. This product was taken by a customer and it was one of the best products for virtualization.

How was the initial setup?

It takes some time, but after one or two tries it becomes easy.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team who performed nice work. If they supported new technologies it would be better as it's expensive.

What was our ROI?

Over about a year, we have saved over half a million for our customer.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product for virtualization, but the price is high although we won’t regret it for this product.
