Great tool for virtualizing (web)services
I’m a frequent user of Parasoft products, amongst those products is Virtualize. Virtualize is a tool that enables me to create virtualized services. In my case, most of these have been webservices. Virtualize isn’t limited to webservices only as it supports other kind of services as well. One of the best features of Virtualize (and all Parasoft products) is that it is very open. Meaning that if the feature you seek isn’t supported out of the box, the Eclipse IDE most of the time will have a solution available for you. If this isn't available either, there is always the open API which can be used to build in your own solution. This allows you to alter the tool specific for your needs. At this moment Virtualize is able to be used in a Continuous Delivery environment. Service Virtualization…

The Environment Manager (EM) component is one of the cleanest, easiest, and most impacting part of the application.

What other advice do I have?

If you don't have a SV product in house, you need one. Even if you don't think you do. All you have to do is evaluate how long you wait for a test environment to be ready so that your testing can start. Or how many times you have a 3rd party application not ready for you and you have to wait, or you have an environment down and testing has to stop. There are so many other uses for it. But when you realize these values and you are ready to purchase, you need to get a demo of Parasoft. You won't regret it.
