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. Why not merge them in one web app?

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 friendly: better usability, more testing oriented. This product emerged from the services virtualization domain and evolved to include application testing. They are very good in service virtualization, but in application testing they need to make some improvements. One of these improvements is to be more test oriented, which will allow the user to manage and control the test execution better and to organize the packages in a better, more user-friendly way. The users should be able to organize the test, test suites, and execution in a better way, such that scenarios can be integrated into the testing part. Currently its outside. The application test should be more feature rich. I would also like to see seamless integration with DevOps. Currently it needs some scripting to integrate with DevOps.

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.
