Why Test Virtualization?

Why is Test Virtualization that 'hot':

  1. Reduce Cost
  2. Reduce Cycle Time
  3. Lower Risk

More important why Rational?

  1. Long history of IBM / Greenhat software, mature software for complex environments
  2. A large, if not unmatched, set of protocols and virtualizations
  3. Integration into IBM Rational and HP Quality Center

When to use Service Virtualization?

Services Virtualization is a technology where an application or system is 'simulated' by an model in RTVS. The model is created with RTW / RIT and deployed on RTVS. It is not a complete functional system, is behaves as the replaced system. It contains just enough behavior that certain tests can be executed in an earlier stage.
