CA Service Virtualization Review

It allows testing without depending on a fully available environment. The rework effort to update test cases is high.


What is most valuable?

Virtualization is useful for system testing where the test applications are not integrated.

Service virtualization is beneficial as it allows system and integration testing to be done, without depending on a fully available environment. This allows continuous integration and continuous testing

How has it helped my organization?

Productivity has improved due to automation of system test cases.

What needs improvement?

HPE ALM integration could be better, especially for exporting/importing/reusing test cases written in an older version of CA Service Virtualization. The rework effort to update test cases is high.

For how long have I used the solution?

I used it for two years; we have upgraded to version 8.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not encountered any stability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

N/A. v5 was end of support.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was complex. CA SV scripting has an initial learning curve.

What other advice do I have?

  • High initial learning curve
  • Benefits in system testing through virtualization
