Computer Weekly UK: Nationwide Building Society case study reprint - August 2012
This article reprint from Computer Weekly outlines how Britain's Nationwide Building Society used virtual development and testing environments (CA LISA solutions in this instance) to reduce infrastructure costs, test earlier and deliver software faster. Service Virtualization practices reduce some critical cycle times for NBS by 66% or more, while increasing test coverage and allowing them to focus on new features and integrations that add customer value.

ITKO Case Study: North American Telco
This leading global provider of fiber-based telecommunications services has grown rapidly over the last 15 years through strategic acquisitions and an expanded portfolio of offerings to subscribers, including business, media, networking and data offerings. The company recently embarked on a broad IT transformation initiative, seeking to integrate and unify the systems of eight different Telco companies under a manageable, flexible service- based system architecture. Read how they increased the alignment of these systems with business processes, thereby increasing the company's ability to roll out customer offerings faster with higher quality of service.

ITKO Case Study: Oracle AIA, Fusion Test & Virtualize
When the world's largest enterprise software company makes a commitment to "shift quality left" - and make consistent improvements in time-to-market, labor and infrastructure costs, and delivered quality across product lines, that equates to a case study worth reading. Multiple technology teams within Oracle, notably, the Oracle Fusion middleware team, and the AIA (Application Integration Architecture) organizations were looking to improve delivery efficiency, through more repeatable processes and test automation. For a software company that has grown with extensive product development as well as through strategic acquisition of leading product suites, the ability to rapidly integrate and deploy apps depends on having ready lab environments, as well as highly automated testing that can peel the layers of their architecture from the rich UI to the middle tier.

ITKO Case Study: Virtual Training Environments - Interstate Banking Firm
One of the leading interstate banking institutions in the US, this company is in the midst of a technology transformation. Like many firms, it is transitioning from a mainframe-centric model to support thousands of branch teller and ATM transaction systems with an increasingly distributed, service-oriented computing model to more flexibly meet employee and customer needs. However, the bank started their journey in a unique place - employing LISA Virtualize to transform the cost model of all the dependencies needed to train bank tellers to more effectively service customers.

ITKO Case Study: Leading P&C Insurer: Virtualizing Performance
This major North American property & casualty insurance firm needed to eliminate performance bottlenecks in the midst of a massive system re-architecture project. By using LISA Virtualize, they were able to make constrained messaging, system of record and Cloud-based services available for realistic performance testing 24/7, and then isolate issues at a component layer with focused load testing.

ITKO Case Study: Western Power
As Western Power has embraced the use of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), applications which were once quite separate had become highly interconnected. While integration of applications brings benefits in terms of automation and process efficiency, it also means that changes can incur unintended negative consequences on each other. Unit tests, while useful for testing each component application, cannot effectively test the entire value chain. Western Power needed an end-to-end testing tool that could test the interactions between applications, and virtualize unavailable services and systems.

ITKO Use Case: Federal Aviation Administration SWIM Program
The "System Wide Information Management" (SWIM) program seeks to service-enable hundreds of systems built and shared by multiple teams and service partners that contribute to the FAA's IT infrastructure. and enable greater IT asset reuse among these teams. The SWIM program faces several challenges that are being met with a comprehensive test and validation strategy across the multiple design, integration and testing teams that support this complex environment.
