Forrester Research Quantified the Value of Service Virtualization
Service Virtualization is all about eliminating the constraints to digital innovation. It gives developers and testers the ability to create simulated software application services of production environments in order to code and test against those services without any dependency or duplication of a production environment. This can be especially beneficial in an Agile development and DevOps environment where speed-to-market is critical in delivering new application features and updates more frequently.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with a CA Service Virtualization implementation, CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to interview several customers with multiple years of experience using CA Service Virtualization. The results have been published in a new Total Economic Impact (TEI) study that shows how CA Service Virtualization users could realize an NPV of $4.5M, ROI of 292%, and payback period of 3 months over a 3 year period.

For organizations with legacy and/or proprietary applications one of the biggest challenges to automating more tests can be the failure of test automation tools to recognize objects. In addition to identifying objects finding a tool that can automate testing across all the different protocols of these applications can also be a major challenge.
During this webcast we’ll share with you two stories shared at CA World from GM and Williams Energy on how they were able to accelerate testing by shifting to an API strategy. During the session we’ll cover how CA’s DevTest solution help clients:
•Shift testing from the UI to the API
•Decrease maintenance efforts and run times for regression tests
•Use a single tool to automate testing across the full stack
•Incorporate testing into continuous integration efforts
In addition to talking about GM and Williams energy we’ll also share additional real world stories on how others have adopted DevTest to delight their management teams and increase speed to market.
