is excited to share the results of our second and most recent research on service virtualization – the voke Market SnapshotTM Report: Service Virtualization
. The latest research was announced
on January 22, 2015. This most recent data was collected from over 500 participants from August – October 2014. Survey participants told us how they are using service virtualization, why they adopted it, their general thoughts about service virtualization, the challenges they face with service virtualization, and the benefits of service virtualization.
This research shows that service virtualization is no longer a nascent technology with a practitioner following. Service virtualization is now a proven technology with visibility at all levels of the organization. Change agents, C-level executives, and practitioners alike find value in the measurable and quick ROI service virtualization brings. Full ROI details achieved by participants provided in the report include:
- Reduced defect reproduction time
- Reduced production defects
- Reduced total defects
- Increased test coverage
- Reduced test cycle time
- Reduced software release cycle time
The voke Market Snapshot highlights ways to get started with service virtualization, questions to conduct an organizational assessment on service virtualization readiness, and real world ROI numbers from service virtualization users.
The report also includes a much needed discussion on the critical differences between service virtualization and stubbing/mocking. Achieving “stateful” dependencies through the use of an architected service virtualization solution provides more value than using a stub/mock workaround.
Service virtualization use is the difference between really having collaboration throughout the software lifecycle vs. just talking about it.
Read the report today and make 2015 your year of stateful dependencies!
