We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable features include the capability to use other program languages such as PLSQR, JAVA, .NET.I think the pricing is quite fair because this solution provides a lot of functionalities, and is quite stable.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.It is definitely scalable.We have been using it extensively for the shift left process and testing. It helps us to accelerate and virtualize services and assets that we don't have. It enables to test faster.We have had developers produce code later than we wanted to, but we've had some other stuff that was dependent on that. So what we were able to do was virtualize these assets and then go forward with our developer and not have to wait for these additional services to be available.We are able to quickly scale our requests. We have tested across thousands of requests. We have had no problems so far.You can have a lot of different people with different technologies use the tool, without any programming experience at all, all the way up to people who can program. And then, the more technical that you are, the more programming you have, the more you're able to customize the tool.

ServiceV Pro enabled our organization to deliver an end-to-end solution by virtualizing external systems, which was easy to implement and provided for a lot of flexibility.Features, such as using Groovy scripts for generating dynamic response, which read data out of Excel sheets and one-click deployment are really nice.Ties-in with the rest of the SoapUI platform and its ability to record traffic and create a virtual endpoint.Discovery option to create virtual services.Mock virtualization services and several instances of those services.In times of DevOps, where continuous delivery and deployment is progressing at such a fast pace, ServiceV Pro has emerged as an add-on for enhancing our API product finish.

Cons
UI should be more user friendly: better usability, more testing oriented.I would rate the tech support a nine out of ten. They need more knowledge about the connectivity to DevOps orchestration.Needs some additional lightweight, portable elements.​From a reporting perspective I think we would like to have a more user-friendly approach.I really want to see more of the "express" kind of model, where you get a little bit for free. I'd love to be able to see you be able to edit and author tests without having to be connected to a licensed server. And then, if you want to go and execute tests, then you go and connect to the server... I think it would unblock people to be able to do a lot more work from home or from remote places, where they can't really connect to the server.We had to implement an external service catalog. We put it in ServiceNow. I would like to see an integrated service catalog.DevTest is pretty massive. It's hard to tell what different parts of it can be used to do different things. They should modulize it more.CA actually releases a new version every year. We had issues with the upgrade prior to the latest one.

Greater capacity to create Virtual APIs based on HAR files or wireshark recordings.Requires more documentation or videos with examples, which is easily understood by the new users.ServiceV still has some bug in the tools, such as structure of the project, integration, and combination with different tools present.The effort required to utilize the capabilities/usage of ServiceV Pro looks like the one area where we could have some further improvements

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

Ability to have general IT staff enable developers using this software as opposed to more expensive vendors or developers building their own solution.Pricing is alright, however more options would be desirable for a fairly new product like ServiceV.Be updated with the latest offerings that the tool provides so as to avoid any clashes with issues, like licensing.

Overview

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.

API virtualization in ServiceV Pro helps you deliver great APIs on time and under budget, and does so for a fraction of the cost typically associated with traditional enterprise service virtualization suites.
