What is service virtualization?

Testing individual system components which depend on other components is challenging. Service virtualization makes it possible to create isolated test environments by simulating test dependencies.

Why use service virtualization?

  • Replace costly, slow-to-provision test systems with on-demand simulations
  • Enable full testing of systems which rely on 3rd-party vendor APIs
  • Analyze how dependency performance issues impact the system by simulating latency or failure
  • Automate testing at the component and system level
