Micro Focus Service Virtualization Review

The data model and agents are easy to use and configure.

Valuable Features

The data model and agents are easy to use and configure. Also, the logging functionality is very good.

Improvements to My Organization

This product has provided us the capability to virtualize dependent systems, which has resulted in the following improvements to our organization:

  • More productivity
  • No dependency on third-party systems
  • Faster test execution cycles

Room for Improvement

HP should work on providing better scripting support and include more communication and transport protocols. HP doesn't support many standard communication and transport protocol like Swift, FIX, EDI, MICS etc. Also the scripting functionality is in beta testing and not completely released so it may break at any time.

Use of Solution

I have used it for one year.

Stability Issues

The latest version, 3.81, is pretty stable.

Scalability Issues

I have not encountered any scalability issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is Excellent! The R&D team is excellent.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was straightforward.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Use the server version; it might cost less.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated ITKO LISA and IBM RIT, but considering our requirements and cost, we found HP SV much more suitable for us.

Other Advice

Check the protocols supported in the product.
