Access a complete test environment— anytime and anywhere

Parasoft Virtualize, an open automated service virtualization solution, creates, deploys, and manages simulated dev/test environments. It simulates the behavior of dependent applications that are still-evolving, difficult to access, or difficult to configure for development or testing—for example, databases, mainframes, ERPs, 3rd-party systems or services.

Beyond "Shift Left"

Parasoft takes "shift left" to the next level by enabling you to test earlier AND test less. With Parasoft's integrated Service Virtualization, API Testing and Development Testing, you can dramatically reduce your exposure to security, performance, and reliability risks.

With fewer defects injected into the software, you achieve significantly faster time to market with better-quality deliverables.

Enable Continuous Testing

Using simulated test environments, developers and testers can exercise end-to-end transactions whenever they want, as extensively as they want. This enables fully-automated continuous testing, which is a critical component of continuous release and continuous delivery. With the freedom to test early and often, the team exposes defects when they are fastest, easiest, and least costly to fix.

Instant Access to Complete Test Environments

Parasoft provides visualization and control of the complete system under test—including all application dependencies. With role-based access, users can review, access, and provision complex test environments in seconds from an intuitive interface. Automated analysis of environment health helps the team proactively identify test environment issues before they compromise the accuracy of your test results.

Directly from this intuitive browser-based interface, team members can create a simulated test environment in less than a minute, then immediately start defining and executing tests against the appropriate test environment configurations.

Open Automated Infrastructure

The Parasoft service virtualization architecture is designed for open and rapid integration with complementary infrastructure components, such as:

  • Application performance monitoring
  • Service repositories
  • API/SOA management
  • ESBs
  • Model-based definitions
  • Test data mining
  • Release automation

Capture and Simulate Real System Behavior

As you naturally exercise the application under test, Parasoft captures real system behavior and converts it into a simulated test environment—delivering anytime access. Beyond "services," Parasoft Service Virtualization captures the behavior of databases, messaging queues, middleware, mainframes, ERPs, ESBs, legacy systems, native system calls, and more.

Rapidly Model Incomplete/Unavailable Components

When dependent system components are unavailable or incomplete, Parasoft enables you to rapidly model anticipated behavior through an intuitive graphical interface. Additionally, you can automatically generate virtual assets from definition files or transaction logs.

Rapid Automated Change Control

With the rapid evolution of today's services and application dependencies, it is essential to have a fast, easy, and automated way of delivering the most realistic test environments. Parasoft automatically assesses the impact of changes and intelligently updates existing test environments. This vastly reduces the amount of time required to achieve the environment integrity required for accurate results.

Easily Configure Complex Test Conditions

Virtual assets are easily extended with specific response parameters for performance, test data, and response logic. It's simple to mimic conditions for more complete testing, including "what-if," security, concurrency, fail-over, performance, and negative test scenarios. This approach allows for a broad array of test conditions to be executed without altering the core test case.
