Recently, a survey conducted by Parasoft about test environments revealed the challenges faced while testing applications. The results show how development and testing teams lack the resources required to complete application testing. And how organizations are taking risk with the quality of their applications by using faulty software solutions that can lead to serious implications.

Take a look at this presentation to know how Parasoft's Service Virtualization solution enables you to perform application testing earlier, faster, more thoroughly, and accurately.

Tackle application failure risk with Service Virtualization

  1. 1. Accelerate Software Testing with Service Virtualization 2014-09-08 Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 1
  2. 2. Test Earlier, Faster, More Completely… Limited Access to Applications Impedes Testing Service Virtualization Benefits of Service Virtualization The Parasoft Advantage Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 2
  3. 3. Challenges of Testing Modern Applications Need to test everything, from mainframes to iPhones Testing must happen in parallel with development Resources are constrained Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 3
  4. 4. Dependent Applications are Hard to Access Enterprise applications under test (AUT) are increasingly dependent on interconnected Enterprise-based data and applications Cloud-based apps and data Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 4
  5. 5. Access to Other Applications Amplifies the Problem Parasoft surveys show that * On Average 75% of enterprises say that they cannot access dependent applications for testing Testing modern applications requires access to dependent systems* 30 of these 6 30 are readily accessible for testing* Parasoft’s research concluded with the stunning finding that 50% of test plans are not completed Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 5
  6. 6. Distributed Applications are Hard to Access Parasoft research shows that enterprise applications require access to an average of 30other applications 14 1..3 12 11 Enterprise-based data and compute resources 10 4 5 7 29 30 15..17 27 26 Cloud-based data and compute resources 6 8 9 13 25 28 18 19 20 21 23 24 22 Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 6
  7. 7. Distributed Applications are Hard to Access Access to connected applications is restricted On average, enterprises cannot easily access 80% of connected applications (24 out of 30) 14 1..3 12 11 Enterprise-based data and compute resources 10 4 5 7 29 30 15..17 27 26 Cloud-based data and compute resources 6 8 9 13 25 28 18 19 20 21 23 24 22 Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 7
  8. 8. The Real Cost of Hard-to-access Applications Should we be confident in enterprise applications that are only 50% tested? 12 11 Enterprise-based data and compute resources 13 4 5 7 29 30 15..17 6 8 9 10 Would you fly in an airplane that was only 50% tested? 14 1..3 27 26 Cloud-based data and compute resources 25 28 18 19 20 21 23 24 22 Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 8
  9. 9. How Do We Increase Testing Scope and Frequency? In the past, more hardware and more test lab capacity solved the problem REST HTTP JMS JSON EDI SOAP MQ SAP CICS RSS Today, complexity of networked applications, including the array of different APIs and system dependencies, renders the “more hardware” approach obsolete Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 9
  10. 10. Service Virtualization Solves the Problem “Service Virtualization” creates simulated test environments that are 100% complete and accurate Mainframe transactions Databases calls Message Queues and ESBs API Interactions Virtualized Application testing can happen any time and anywhere without adding additional test environment hardware Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 10
  11. 11. Key Benefits to Industries/Verticals Financial Services Virtualizes legacy mainframe behaviors, allowing for safe partner integration Telco and Communications Enables access to multiple networked internal and partner applications Retail Enables rapid prototyping with immediate testing for near-real-time feedback loops Utilities Allows value-chain partners to test as-yet-unimplemented APIs for certified cross-partner integrations Copyright © 1996-2014 Parasoft 11
