Bloor Market Research: Service Virtualisation - Vendors
Philip Howard | Bloor Research | Published: 15 Nov 2012
Philip Howard of UK-based Bloor Research discusses how service virtualization helps organizations to avoid issues with the stability or availability of services when testing or developing software. Philip describes how service virtualization enables organizations to "pretend" that services are both available and stable. He goes on to discuss service virtualization market trends and the vendors in this space. Philip’s comparison of service virtualization vendors positions CA Technologies as the leader in the report’s top category, "Champion".

NEW: ZapThink Whitepaper: "SOA Quality Across the Service Lifecycle"
As organizations move beyond straighforward implementations of Web Services to the more complex world of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), maintaining the quality of the implementation in the face of changing business requirements becomes an increasingly difficult challenge. In the final analysis, quality represents how well a system meets the needs of the business, so when the business case for SOA calls for business agility, SOA quality means meeting business requirements as those requirements are in an ongoing, continual state of change
