With contributors:


Service virtualization and testing (SVT) solutions provide developers and testers with tools to quickly simulate the services of a complex production environment, mainly for automating regression, integration, and performance tests. In doing so, SVT enables companies to define complex test scenarios, provision more consistent production-like test labs more quickly, and test in fast-paced Agile environments to improve testing speed and product quality. In Forrester's 15-criteria evaluation of service virtualization and testing vendors, we evaluated five solutions offered by CA Technologies, HP, IBM, Parasoft, and SmartBear Software. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help application development and testing professionals select the right SVT solution.
