HP Service Virtualization: Test Earlier and Improve Time to Market (TTM)

A fundamental shift is taking place in application development. Composite applications are in the forefront of enterprise software development where technology vendors are rapidly developing applications in a composite platform, providing greater flexibility for development teams to create applications which rely on an array of back-end services to deliver software.

Applications are progressively relying on in-house and third-party developed services to interface with data-driven applications. The increasing complexity of software architecture, as well as attempting to line up testing cycles with release cycles across multiple vendors’ services, increases the complexity of testing and the duration of software testing cycles.
