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.
