Today’s complex applications are a build-up of multiple interdependent components.
These components are developed by different teams. While they need to be concurrent, sometimes delays in parts of dependent components can slow down the testing code.
Service virtualization allows DevOps teams to use virtual services instead of waiting for production services. This allows for frequent and comprehensive testing even when critical system components are missing.
Why use Service Virtualization?
Benefits of Service Virtualization to IT organizations
Helps overcome 3rd party downtime, overage fees, rate limits
Minimizes developer’s impact on your production APIs by providing a simulated working environment that is a replica of the real deployment environment
Reduces dependencies on relational databases
Helps perform isolated testing and integration safely
Reduces project risk and cost
Speeds application release cycles by allowing development and testing to run concurrently
Reduced testing and QA Cost by up to 67%
Shorter time-to-market due to improved testing capabilities.
Improved product quality
Lesser constraints on testing and QA teams
