Parasoft Service Virtualization Review

Low technical knowledge required to start using the tool.


What is most valuable?

  • Quick generation of virtualized services.
  • Reuse of common data in other fields as test automation (using SOATest) or test data management.
  • Low technical knowledge required to start using the tool.
  • Environment Management gives organizations a powerful visual interface to manage and create virtualized service.

How has it helped my organization?

  • I've used Virtualized on some different projects with different protocols and technologies such as: WSDL, IBM MQ, Proprietary protocols and XML. In general I noticed some improvements for organizations.
  • Easy integration with another tools in order to boost the SDLC agility. This enables organizations to speed up their SDLC providing test environments as soon as possible.
  • Allows one to discover how the services operate and disseminate information in organizations where there are undocumented processes and key individuals hold all the knowledge about specific processes. This is very helpful to have a system vision to create virtualized services as required.

What needs improvement?

Reports about status of test environments.
