The move to cloud-based applications has undeniably delivered tremendous benefits. However, the associated distribution creates various challenges from the quality perspective:
- End-to-end tests need to pass through multiple dependent systems, which are commonly unavailable, evolving, or difficult-to-access for testing.
- Accessing such systems often involves transaction and bandwidth fees.
- Teams need to test and tune the system under test against a realistic and broad range of performance and behavior conditions - yet such conditions are often difficult to achieve in a test environment.
In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Wayne Ariola, Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development at Parasoft, explores how to teams can use service virtualization to overcome the access constraints that delay and limit the testing of cloud applications. Delegates will:
- Discover how the escalating number and complexity of dependencies impacts QA efforts (STP-exclusive results from our recent study).
- Learn how service virtualization reduces the configuration time, hardware overhead, and data management efforts involved resolving dependencies for dev/test purposes.
- Weigh the pros and cons of different ways to resolve dependencies (staged test labs, server virtualization, service virtualization, stubs) to see which is best suited for a particular situation.
