Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"In the case of the virtualization of TCP/IP protocols for third-party terminal insurance, there was a device terminal, which was interacting with the application via the TCP/IP protocol. Most of the tools don't support that, but we were able to achieve it using Broadcom Service Virtualization.""The most valuable features are the recording and creating of virtual services.""There are several areas that are easily configurable."

More Broadcom Service Virtualization Pros →

"The most valuable feature is SAP virtualization."

More Micro Focus Service Virtualization Pros →

"It is not a stable solution.""I would like to have more flexibility towards the mainframe virtualization and also in JDBC virtualization.""The cost is an area that needs improvement. There are a couple of other tools which provide support for performance testing with the base version itself, but Broadcom needs a separate component to support virtualization for performance testing. This is a costly component."

More Broadcom Service Virtualization Cons →

"The integration with other solutions, such as ALM and Jira, should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There are additional fees for advanced-level technical support."
  • "I don't have the exact dollar amount, but we have spent close to $1,000,000 for a three-year agreement, for an enterprise level."
  • "There is a yearly licensing cost, and I would give it a four out of five."

    Also, I’d like to add that “HP Service test” mentioned below is a tool for functional integration (API) testing, but not for Service Virtualization. Please, pay attention to it.

    Thank you.

    HP Service Test and CA Lisa are not comparable products.

    HP Service Test is comparable to Soap UI- create scripts/tests that drive data to a web service.

    HP Service Test is one of three products in the HP Unified Functional Testing Suite: what used to be Quick Test Professional, Service Test and Service Test Manager.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have experience in CA Lisa SV.
    However, I have evaluated HP SV and have an opinion about it – I can share my thoughts if you need, but I don’t think that it will help you to answer the question.

    “What needs to be considered when comparing them?”

    Of course a lot is depends on your necessities, but for the most of cases it doesn’t matter what tools you are going to compare – I believe that all the needs are the same because of the domain area (SV in this case).

    - Number of Protocols supported

    - Record and Reproduce possibility

    - Create virtual services from scratch

    - Easiness of installing, configuring and using

    - Extended possibilities for creation more complex virtual endpoints (db support, data stores, team using, etc.)

    - Other deeper criteria
    Thank you.

    CA Service Virtualization acts as a catalyst for DevOps by simulating constrained or unavailable systems across the software development lifecycle (SDLC). This allows developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel to accelerate app delivery, as well as to “shift-left” the app testing to improve application quality. CA Service Virtualization was previously known as LISA, the product from the ITKO acquisition.

    Micro Focus Service Virtualization helps to simulate a services behavior in a production environment. This simulation software enables in-house development and testing teams to keep to their schedules regardless of access to production systems.
