Parasoft Service Virtualization Review

Helped us in accelerating application delivery by allowing us to test early.


Valuable Features

There are several features of Parasoft Virualize worth mentioning, but some of them are:

1. Ease of creating message responders

2. Using custom transports, message formats and tools

3. Working with message proxies

4. Customizing request matching and correlations

Improvements to My Organization

Parasoft Virtualize helped us in accelerating application delivery by allowing us to test early. We were given an application under test when some of the major back-end components were not available, apart from the service contracts being ready. Using SV allowed us to expose defects when they were fastest, easiest and least costly to resolve. We were able to complete system testing, and resolve interface integration issues even before the real back-end system was made available. Our organisation was able to shift left using Parasoft Virtualize.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The technical support is very good.

Initial Setup

The initial set up for Parasoft Virtualize is very straightforward. All the latest updates are available on the web site and a great user guide to help through the installation.

ROI

With respect to ROI, the factor worth mentioning is that we found more than 500 defects as a part of early testing. It saved good money, if these were identified in later stages, identified loopholes early and allowed to test scenarios which otherwise would be impossible to test in an integrated environment.
