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…

The analysts at voke are embarking on a busy time of year!
Join voke founder, Theresa Lanowitz, on October 28, 2014 at 8:30AM Pacific / 11:30AM Eastern to discuss “The Hidden Cost of Rework”. Each and every software project has defects – that is just a fact. However, the longer the defect is ignored, the more expensive it is to remediate. Join Theresa Lanowitz of voke and Jon Jarboe of Coverity to learn how to identify defects earlier and reduce the cost of rework involved with every software project. Register here to learn about “The Hidden Cost of Rework” 
Next up, voke founder, Theresa Lanowitz, will be the keynote presenter at the Cognizant Quality Engineering and Assurance Summit in Sydney, Australia! The theme of the event is “The Future of Quality: Challenge the Conventional Status Quo”. The event is Thursday, November 6. If you are in the ANZ region, register here
Theresa’s keynote will discuss “Software Quality in the Sound Bite Era”. Join Theresa to find out if you can rise abo…

Release Management - We Want YOUR Opinion

Releasing software, the last step to getting your software creation to your customers! Every team releases software differently, but everyone wants the release to be a success. So, regardless of how you release, how frequently you release, or how much you know about what you are releasing – we want your opinion! voke, the analyst firm focused on the edge of innovation, is conducting research on the topic of release management. We are looking for people exactly like you to share your opinion on software release management. 
Please help out by letting us know what you think. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Click here to share your story on release management. t
