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?

The ability to do parallel development and testing reduces our costs for duplicating environments, improving the productivity of our developers, and bringing products faster to market.

What needs improvement?

As far as the next version of it is concerned, probably some additional lightweight, portable elements. For instance, we would like to not have to rely on deploying things to a server, be able to carry it and make it more portable (maybe through the mobile devices), etc. Some of the mobility aspects… more»

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

We actually stumbled upon it both in terms of good luck and prior experience. Prior experience, not from our perspective, but from one of our VPs, who happen to work at CA before he came to our organization. Combined with a need from us to not invest in additional development environments for some… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely rate it as a nine. Simply because I think any product obviously has some inherent flaws in it. That is the reason why they are upgraded. It would be foolish to say it is a 10 right off the bat.

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 CA 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.

CA Service Virtualization Questions

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.
