iTKO Announces Service-Oriented Virtualization at SOA World Conference
Bringing the value of Virtualization into the cycle of SOA applications

Shridhar Mittal, CEO of iTKO, announced an important new chapter in the practice of Virtualization for accelerating time-to-market and reducing the cost of developing SOA applications.

Delivered at SYS-CON's "SOA World West / Virtualization Expo 2007," Mittal described how bringing the value of Virtualization into the cycle of SOA application development requires a new approach of simulating the behavior of services through Virtual Services.

The new practice, dubbed "Service-Oriented Virtualization," or "SOV" is a strategy of simulating the real-world behavior of software assets that comprise an SOA application, thereby decoupling development and testing teams from dependency on deployed Services and their underlying implementation layers.

"While the practice of virtualizing hardware and Test Beds has created significant IT cost benefits, we are missing much of the potential value of Virtualization as it applies to the SOA lifecycle," Mittal said. "By virtualizing the behavior of services with SOV, the extended development and test team can break the boundaries of limited access to live services and data -- solving a primary stumbling block for SOA success."

With the release of LISA 4, the company now offers a solution for creating and leveraging the Virtual Services needed for SOV practices. The iTKO LISA Virtual Services Environment (VSE) allows parallel development cycles for distributed SOA teams by both simulating services from a WSDL, and further, emulating the behavior of services and their underlying systems. The company estimates to reduce the cost of software licensing, support and maintenance by 60-80 percent per additional team test environment.

"LISA VSE offers unmatched collaboration and agility for SOV," said Mittal. "By allowing the distributed development and testing teams to capture and model virtual services within LISA, we can speed the time-to-market and quality of delivered services, at a much lower cost."

LISA VSE allows the team to create or capture Virtual Services that basically look and act like standard WSDL-defined or other underlying Services (such as ESB, Java objects, databases, etc.) that SOA applications can connect to. These Virtual Services are actively running and implemented on an instance of the LISA Server instead of the implementation hardware, so they can be accessible for design, development and testing activities whenever, and wherever they are needed.
