Broadcom Service Virtualization Review

Allows us to focus on just the system under test. It's still very complex to use.

What is most valuable?

I like the fact that it allows us to focus on just the system under test. We can remove of all the dependent requirements from the system.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows us to implement an Agile Shift Left development paradigm so that we can start testing things before all the pieces of are completed.

What needs improvement?

I think the biggest improvement can come in usability. It's still very complex to use. Also, we've found a fair number of bugs, but CA always resolves them.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I would say it's been mostly stable. We did have a problem related to a service one of our teams was running that was not working properly. But, we don’t yet know what the root cause was.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scaled to meet all of our needs so far.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been good. They're responsive to our requests.

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

All our teams were using their own solutions. We wanted something more universal.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was straight forward. It was an easy install.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Parasoft, but we thought that CA met our vendor requirements more closely.

When choosing a vendor, the most important criteria is whether we can have a long-term partnership with them. Obviously, cost is also an important factor, as well as software reliability. We also look at the future road map for the product.

What other advice do I have?

It's important to have a group that really learns and understands service virtualization well. You can then leverage them for any teams that want to implement SV.
