What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the recording and creating of virtual services. Especially in creating IBM MQ virtual services through recording.

What needs improvement?

The learning curve is an area that needs improvement, as well as stability and performance. Stability has to be improved. It is not a stable solution. Especially, when you create custom solutions there are issues with memory accumulation. I… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are additional fees for advanced-level technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, I was using SoapUI for creating MockServices. I have also used WireMock. These two tools I have used. Comparing to those, the differences are that both version services can be run locally. I am a developer and I can create a… more »

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… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features include the capability to use other program languages such as PLSQR, JAVA, .NET. This is important because whenever the tool is limited you can extend it by writing your own… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It hasn't matured enough yet to provide good prospects; we are still in the process of implementation. I can't tell you if anything in the process has improved or not, but the objective is to use this… more »

What needs improvement?

CA Service Virtualization has its pros and cons. It's a strong framework and the feedback is good, however when it comes to acting as a test tool some improvements are required. UI should be more user… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

When we started API and vacant testing, we needed a tool to support it. We did some research in the market and this solution has most of our requirements: it's stable, feature rich, and has many years… more »

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… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There were four vendors on the short list: * CA Service Virtualization * SOAtest by Parasoft * Green Hat (now Rational Integration Tester) by IBM. * ReadiAPI by SmartBear We chose CA as it fulfilled… more »

What is most valuable?

There are several areas that are easily configurable. A person, without having a lot of development experience, should be able to perform most of the functions. There are many different features… more »

What needs improvement?

Because I have not compared it with other toolsets, I don't have a lot of insight. The only area that I can think of at the moment is the building of automated APA test cases. Based on your services… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't have the exact dollar amount, but we have spent close to $1,000,000 for a three-year agreement, for an enterprise level. Any number of people can use it, and it has three performance inputs… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we were not using any other tools.

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have been comparing it with other tools. Broadcom is expensive when compared to other open-source or low-cost toolsets. We have been doing the feasibility with other low-cost tools and the use… more »

What is most valuable?

The ability to create virtual services and deploy them as Docker containers, and include them in our Jenkins build pipelines, is a valuable feature. It was critical for us to prevent possible elements from "unnecessarily" breaking the pipeline. If I'm pushing a particular web service through the… more »

How has it helped my organization?

In short, we are able to save a lot of valuable time. Testers and developers no longer complain about not having access to dependent services. We don't have to share/reserve resources or worry about our development being blocked by unavailable services.

What needs improvement?

The workstation component has a very out-dated UI and is in dire need of a facelift. There are too many fragmented web components that could easily and logically be merged. For example, Service Catalog, Enterprise Dashboard, Portal, and Identity and Access Manager are all separate web applications… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used HPE SV before. It was very user-friendly but cannot be compared with CA DevTest, as it lacks a lot of the important features.

What do you think of Broadcom Service Virtualization?

What needs improvement?

On the testing side of the functionality, there are a few things that are missing. For instance, a comparative report. But since it's open source, we can add the extension and we do this by ourselves.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate the tech support a nine out of ten. They need more knowledge about the connectivity to DevOps orchestration.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think the pricing is quite fair because this solution provides a lot of functionalities, and is quite stable.

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.
