What is Broadcom Service Virtualization?

CA Service Virtualization acts as a catalyst for DevOps by simulating constrained or unavailable systems across the software development lifecycle (SDLC). This allows developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel to accelerate app delivery, as well as to “shift-left” the app testing to improve application quality. CA Service Virtualization was previously known as LISA, the product from the ITKO acquisition.

Broadcom Service Virtualization is also known as ITKO LISA, CA LISA, CA Service Virtualization .

Scalable with good recording and creating of virtual services, but it's not stable and there is no support for previous versions

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for creating virtual services, creating API testing, and creating virtual data.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the recording and creating of virtual services."
  • "It is not a stable solution."

What other advice do I have?

Our services are offered to all of our clients. Once they have purchased the product, we offer services and centrally configure this for others who have this feature. It's free. Instead of each and every project team buying their own products, we centrally buy it, we centrally manage the environment, and we provide it to the rest of the teams. This provides a way of cost-cutting and interacting. This solution is definitely for large enterprise companies, not suitable for a small or medium-sized company. With large enterprise companies, we can use freeware tools. There are several freeware…

Provides a Strong and Adaptable Framework

What is our primary use case?

We use this tool to be more agile and deliver daily releases to production, shortening the development cycle.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features include the capability to use other program languages such as PLSQR, JAVA, .NET."
  • "UI should be more user friendly: better usability, more testing oriented."

What other advice do I have?

I would give CA an eight out of ten. It could be a ten on service virtualization, but it's definitely a 6 or 7 in the application testing area. These two are combined into one product (CA DevTest), so the overall total comes to an 8. When selecting a vendor, our most important criteria is based on which areas are supported. As we are an enterprise, we have rich environments with many types of platforms and the most important requirement is that the tools will support these rich environments, protocols, technologies, and platforms. In the end, your choice depends on what goal is more important…

Feature-rich, easy to configure and set up, and the support is good

What is our primary use case?

We mark up several APIs from web servers, JMS, and MQ Services with this solution. We use it to support our performance testing. Some of the virtual services that have been built by this solution will support somewhere around 2000 to 3000GPS perfectly.

Pros and Cons

  • "There are several areas that are easily configurable."
  • "I would like to have more flexibility towards the mainframe virtualization and also in JDBC virtualization."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product to others who are interested in using it. I would rate Broadcom Service virtualization a nine out of ten.

User-friendly, flexible, and saves us in development time

What is our primary use case?

* By virtualization, for all dependent services, we are able to create isolated test environments. * We virtualize fragile services and deploy them with the 'Failover' mode so that we can fall back to the VS in case the real service returns an error. * We virtualize third-party paid services, as well as in-development services, to minimize costs and delays.

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to create virtual services and deploy them as Docker containers, and include them in our Jenkins build pipelines, is a valuable feature."
  • "The workstation component has a very out-dated UI and is in dire need of a facelift."
