Senior IT Manager - Service Virtualisation at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
Dec 07 2016

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?

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»

Engineer Manager at a construction company with 501-1,000 employees
Nov 30 2017

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it supports so many protocols. We, being a large bank, have almost all the protocols, and it supports all of them, so that's one good thing.

How has it helped my organization?

I think it definitely helps us reduce time to market, and in terms of dollar savings it helps us quite a bit. There are many testing applications that reach out to third-party vendors where every transaction costs, and we are able to... more»

What needs improvement?

One major feature I would like to see is on the user administration part. Right now, anybody can access any of the folders and any of the projects. If they could bring in someone amount of user administration, that would help us a lot.

It is easy to use, has a faster time to market, and provides flexibility. On our customer side, we have actually done a lot with this particular tool. It has helped a lot of teams to accelerate their testing and development, and saved a lot... more»

What needs improvement?

* The enterprise catalog. Usually what happens is once you have a set of virtual services, then you go to an enterprise. So, people would like to see what is already virtualized and how can they take advantage of it. Right now, it is actually... 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.
