Service Virtualizing could be defined as “the testing environment that helps operation team to deliver high-quality products to market on a schedule under budget.” Service virtualization involves creating and deploying a “virtual asset” that simulates the behavior of a real component which is necessary to exercise the application under test, but is hard or impossible to access for development and testing purposes.
Organizations that aren’t in tight deadlines, gives testing the product a higher value in order to maximize their products quality. Service Virtualizing becoming more popular because it cuts wait and configuration time and access fees, it reduces the need for hardware and licenses which normally cost a lot and also it makes testing easier, faster and more reliably by accelerating the process it lessens the time to the market. Service virtualization is a key to DevOps implementations.
Service virtualization very effective for Quality assurance (QA) which determines the desired level of quality in service or product. The quality and usage of product, meeting with the needs of the consumer and how would a consumer probably react are very important in the processes of delivery or production. Service virtualization gives a highly detailed test even before the final product occurs. Providing a no-risk environment for the application or product provides a huge convenience for company.
Today most of the big companies in the world use service virtualization in order to minimize their risk at the marker. It is actually a new and developing area so in the future it is expected to widen its usage of area.
