Cloud Expo 2012
Parasoft announced from Cloud Expo that they will be showcasing the latest release of their service virtualization and cloud/API testing solutions.
With today’s highly distributed enterprise systems, it’s challenging for dev/QA to access much of the system behavior required to exercise the application under test. To help organizations ensure the security, reliability, and compliance of business processes across these heterogeneous systems, Parasoft delivers an enterprise-grade solution for complex testing across the different layers of cloud-based applications as well as next-generation test environment management with service virtualization.
The latest releases help developers and testers keep their tests and simulated test environments in sync with evolving services and environment conditions. With so many dependencies controlled by external departments or third parties, developers and testers are often the last to learn about changes that significantly impact their testing efforts. The “Change Advisor” capability introduced across Parasoft SOAtest and Parasoft Virtualize enables developers and testers to proactively identify and resolve the service and environment changes that affect their ability to test efficiently and effectively.
“Ironically, as organizations strive to become increasingly agile, they tend to incur a huge productivity hit because so much time and effort is required to keep automated tests and associated test environments in sync with continuously evolving services and frequent infrastructure changes,” explained Wayne Ariola, Parasoft VP of Strategy. “We designed this functionality to help teams update their testing and service virtualization assets rapidly, accurately, and intelligently—so that they can focus on completing the goal-oriented, business-driven test scenarios that are so essential for reducing application risk.”
