CA Service Virtualization Review

It's given our organization a common deliverable and common strategies amongst various products. The user interface and usability of the tool could definitely be improved upon in the next release.


What is most valuable?

It's got a standardized format for endpoints as well as containerized, virtualized endpoints that are used by everyone on our team. We can spin up these endpoints if necessary.

How has it helped my organization?

We're still working with it, but it's given us a common deliverable. The overall testing strategy allows us to have more common strategies amongst various products.

What needs improvement?

The user interface and usability of the tool is not the best. They could definitely be improved upon in the next release.

Also, we are hamstrung by different releases and are not using all of the features, but it is useful.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It’s not stable as of yet, as it needs a lot of infrastructure.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't done so yet, but we're hoping it will be scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We interact with an internal department that works between CA and ourselves. They have all of the info we need.

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

I think we were just using many different tools to achieve the same thing. We needed one tool to do it all, and this fit the bill.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

You should make an overall testing plan, otherwise it’s difficult to implement quickly.

What other advice do I have?

I’d compare it to open-source solutions that already exists. Consider your organization before diving deep. For us, we are building up our maturity, and this solution is built to a higher standard.
