New Service Virtualization Research

voke 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!

Is API Testing Worth it?

Well, if you want to reduce risk, increase coverage, and reduce defect leakage in your software the answer is a definitive and resounding YES! Over the past couple of decades, testers have largely been testing at the user interface (UI) level. The problem with this approach is the UI is constantly changing and must be stable before any testing can begin. If you have been following software development, you know that the trend is to release more quickly – waiting for a UI to be stable to be tested does not break any speed records, in fact this slows down the whole software engineering process. What if you could test earlier in the software engineering lifecycle with a stable interface? This would mean that you: •Test earlier in the lifecycle
•Identify and remediate defects earlier
•Reduce testing time and cost
•Increase test coverage 


If these benefits sound too good to be true check out our most recent research on API testing that shows how you can achieve better software quality, a more rap…

API Testing – Stop Waiting and Start Testing ASAP!

We have all heard that testers must keep pace with developers to deliver software faster. However, most testers continue to test at the UI level – which is constantly changing, so testers have to wait, and that impacts the ability to meet business demands for faster software releases. It becomes a cycle that testers have a hard time escaping.
Testers want to be able to test earlier, reduce risk, and identify defects sooner – all to satisfy the customer. API testing is the perfect way to supplement traditional UI testing, keep pace with development, and deliver better quality at scale! 
API testing can help you test earlier, faster, and more efficiently! And now, we have the data to show you the benefits of API testing including how much time is spent on UI testing alone, how much (or should I say little) time is spend on unit and API testing, and how much coverage is achieved. 
We will be premiering the results of our recent survey on API testing in a webinar with Parasoft on Thursday, M…
