Speaker: Chris Colosimo

To realize the benefits from agile and DevOps initiatives, many organizations are turning to service virtualization to implement Continuous Testing and keep up with shortened delivery cycles. By simulating services that are out of control or unavailable for testing, service virtualization enables users to “shift-left” and access complete, realistic test environments, enabling teams to develop and test their applications earlier and more completely. Organizations that have adopted the practice report fewer defects, better test coverage, greater test execution rates, and dramatically less time spent testing.

Once an organization decides to “take the plunge” and evaluate service virtualization solutions, there are many factors to consider to ensure a successful deployment and ROI. On the surface, all service virtualization solutions might look the same, but that’s far from true and there are many pitfalls that can turn a deployment into a disaster. In this presentation, product manager Chris Colosimo will share the tips, tricks, and traps of service virtualization. We’ll discuss the key features and capabilities that have proven successful in deployments, and give you a checklist to help you evaluate solutions against your needs.

In this presentation, attendees will learn:

  • Industry-shaping protocols and message formats to create virtual services for simple to complex use cases, like open banking and microservices
  • Key features to handle the size, scale, and complexity that a modern enterprise requires
  • Scriptless virtual service creation of stateful, simulated services (without intimate knowledge of the real service)
  • Understanding and remediating changes to services with automation, reducing the TCO traditionally associated with service virtualization
