What is most valuable?

For CA Service Virtualization, it’s the ability to quickly prototype something. My guys really like the ability where they can do the recording session. It's a way for them to initialize for existing services where they need to get it up and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

When I originally bought Service Virtualization there were several things that we leveraged it for. One of them was that we had a merger acquisition, and we needed to interface the two systems together. So we needed to be able to share all... more»

What needs improvement?

There were things early where we couldn’t do a few things in Service Virtualization that have since been updated. The concern I have right now with Release Automation is the concept of what we call immutable objects, so I build it once in... more»

What is most valuable?

It is introducing a lot more flexibility for us. It reduces time scales, getting time to market. It also helps us cross-skill some of the people, and start to really bring that DevOps mentality into the bank. I suppose in our payments estate... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's time to market of course, and also the total cost of ownership. We don't have to build big end-to-end environments anymore. Previously, any major project would come along and say, "I need to build more kit," and you just keep filling... more»

What needs improvement?

I think the ones we've wanted have come through, actually. Because ours was such an old version, and we said at the time, "We'd like to see x, y, and zed". They're already in 9, and what I've seen of version 10, it's even more closely bundled... more»

What is most valuable?

Service Virtualization allows you to function in an isolated manner. It allows you to not be so dependent on systems that, in traditional testing, causes you delays, causes impacts to your overall time testing schedule, and just creates an... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest thing, the huge time to market gain. The other thing is just financial efficiency. We're seeing huge financial gains in terms of using the tools. One of the biggest things that I like about the CA products is they do what they say... more»

What needs improvement?

I think some of the monitoring capabilities could be enhanced. Those aren't necessarily major gaps for us, but I think that would be good. Just some of the real time monitoring and reporting capabilities. Some of the solutions that we've had... more»

What is most valuable?

A while ago, we were looking for a tool to do testing across the web services. During that time, we were doing some PoCs on SoapUI. We did a PoC with Lisa. The company name was ITKO. After going through several PoC sessions, we figured out... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We use it as a kind of defect-finding tool when it comes to regression testing and automation testing. You can’t use the tests against pages that have JavaScript calls being made from them. So CA wrote a Chrome plug-in for us, which, once... more»

What needs improvement?

At the point of next release, we would really like to see the issues being resolved which we are facing right now with dynamic applications. Now, most of the applications in the market, in the industry, and most of the companies are rolling... more»

What is most valuable?

Using the agile method, each iteration is scheduled to last 1-2 weeks and development would take up most of that. The testers didn't have enough time to properly test the application. With Service Virtualization, we virtualized the services... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We not only use Service Virtualization for web services, we also use it to virtualize services that we used to pay for. It can be used in the enterprise bus to integrate external applications. In the QA domain, you need to pay a lot to use... more»

What needs improvement?

We still have mainframe systems and while CA provides instructions on how to integrate Linux-based applications, they don’t provide integration steps for mainframe. We would like to see improvements in mobile integration. Integration is... more»

What is CA 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.
