Françoise DoughSenior Software Architecht at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 most valuable features are the recording and creating of virtual services."
"There are several areas that are easily configurable."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create code from a flow chart, and then run the code through it."
"The solution is based on a Windows model, where adding users is just a few clicks. It is easy to manage users and add them."
"The most valuable features would be the image recognition and the OCR."
"The workstation component has a very out-dated UI and is in dire need of a facelift."
"It is not a stable solution."
"I would like to have more flexibility towards the mainframe virtualization and also in JDBC virtualization."
"We found that we had issues regarding the VPN setup, which is one of the reasons that we did not purchase this solution."
"The reporting function is a bit shallow. The solution does not offer very comprehensive reporting in terms of your test results. The reporting time and the logs are very high level as well. These areas need improvement."
"In terms of additional features, it would be helpful to have one package for all testing. You have the manager, the AI, then you have functional, and about 10 different packages for installing."
"There are additional fees for advanced-level technical support."
"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."

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.
