Today, everything is mobile, connected, interactive, immediate and fluid. To gain competitive advantage in the face of rapidly changing technology and business dynamics, enterprises must accelerate time to market. In an age of “instant” expectations, organizations have to be able to respond quickly and effectively to changing business needs.
To help the business achieve these goals, application teams need to deliver quality software on time and on budget. Software developers and testers must speed up application projects and lower the costs of development integration and testing. However, in the effort to reduce costs and meet tight deadlines, application teams often need to make tradeoffs on the expected level of performance and functionality, which can lead to a sacrifice in application quality.
To do this rapid, agile development, many organizations are moving to composite applications which are made up of smaller units of functionality that can be developed and tested in quickly achieved increments. This approach promotes agility because the smaller units of functionality, or services, can be developed in parallel, accessed from third parties, and reused in multiple projects. One downside to this approach is that the entire process can slow down—and become more costly—if there are dependencies on services that are not available when developers and testers need them.
HP Service Virtualization software allows developers and testers access to limited or unavailable services in a simulated, virtual environment. This helps application teams lower costs and reduce testing times by finding defects earlier in the application life cycle when they are easier, faster and less expensive to fix. It helps improve quality by enabling quality assurance (QA) teams test what otherwise couldn’t be tested. It also helps isolate problems that are based on dependencies between services in composite applications. This helps significantly reduce delays and manage the costs and complexity of composite application development and testing.
